In Mold Decoration (IMD) is a cost effective method of decorating plastic parts.The molded plastic part binds with the printed film to create a permanent design on the plastic part.The technology is highly suitable and also recommendable for applications that work in extreme environment conditions.It allows the faster and easier printing of complex graphics on irregular and 3D surfaces.
The central production process takes place in an injection molding machine in which the plastic parts are not only shaped, but at the same time decorated and provided with a new, perceptible soft-touch feel.Looks and structural designs in wood, carbon, marble, textile, leather and concrete are just as feasible as decorations with brushed, metallized, or reflective chrome looks.
