We are experienced in the design and engineering process of creating and printing distortion art for pre-formed inserts, allowing seamlessly formed integration during the insertion of our injection mold.
Insert-Mold Decoration (IMD) is the process of inserting a graphic overlay into an injection mold, uniting the advantages of functional and unique graphics with plastic molded components, becoming an integral part of the assembly. Ranging from the simple bonding of printed labels during the molding process, to the use of a screen printed or hard coated film, we manufacture exclusive products utilizing custom techniques. The IMD process is cost effective, as accuracy is increased and wasteful steps are eliminated.
- polycarbonate / polycarbonate alloy
- consistent gauge thickness
Thermoforming consists of a film held in a rigid frame and heated to its plastic flow point. A combination of vacuum, air, and mechanics forces the film into the correct shape.
- greater design flexibility
- improved recyclability of materials
- selection of finish options, including texturing
- lower costs than traditional methods
- option for backlighting
