Moulds - Packaging

ABATE BASILIO & C. Snc was established in 1973 as a mechanical precision shop.


Located between Brescia and Garda Lake, inside one among Italian most important districts for moulding technologies, our Company specialized in time in the manufacture of high performances injection moulds for plastic mostly in the packaging and in fast cycle parts fields.


Our production makes use of technologies, developed straight by us, specifically aimed at the optimization of the injection and cooling cycles as well as the ejection of the shot part and thanks to which we may ensure our customers a considerable increase of the production rate. Exclusively worldwide patents enable our customer to take enormous advantages against the competitors.

In particular we are specialized in the manufacture of moulds for the packaging field and in this respect particular regard deserves our production of high performances flat and sandwich moulds suitable for the production of thin wall containers - for food or not – (T.W.P.P. Thin Walled Packaging Products) with I.M.L. (In Mold Labelling). We are furthermore greatly present into the technical fields with exclusively unscrewing systems and 2K moulds application.


 Since April 2003 our Company is ISO 9001 (ICIM Cert. 1054) certified, as further guarantee and growth of reliability and quality – both in terms of products and services – which always distinguished our Company.



Based in Bremen, Germany Ilsemann Automation has been supplying highly dynamic takeout systems with precise automation solutions to handle the most complex of applications for more than 40 years. Companies in more than 60 countries use their takeout and automation solutions in their production. Key industries are food packaging, medical, healthcare as well as automotive and multimedia.


Various standard systems are available for the production of IML products, plastic cutlery, disposable dinnerware, petri dishes, spray caps, multimedia boxes, etc.


Reducing cycle times is the key to cutting unit costs. Lateral insertion and takeout systems are consistently designed for top acceleration and traversing speeds to implement shortest cycle times with total cycle times shorter than 2.5sec, Ilsemann systems are unique in that they feature excellent takeout times shorter than 0.25 sec for single moulds as well as stack moulds with eight cavities or more.

Non-moving system components such as base frame and guides are solidly built for precision and durability. To make best use of the performance of the drives we employ low-weight carbon fibre end-of-arm tools. They are custom-designed by specialists and produced in our in-house carbon fibre design and production unit.


Naturally, these highly dynamic processes are further enhanced with the integration of downstream optical quality inspection, stacking, packaging and palletising where required.


The demands imposed on medical & packaging applications are very high, therefore expectations as to the design and quality of equipment continually increasing. A bespoke automation systems from Ilsemann ensures that you fully meet these expectations. Our highly experienced teams will be keen to face the most complex challenges in the takeout, assembly and packaging of your components.
