Ondemand Inmold Solution

To inmold more freedom.

It is important to select the right decoration method based on considering all relevant factors including design (elaborative pattern), product shape, pricing, quick delivery, planned quantity, environmental issue and functionality. Selecting a wrong decoration method may lead to a compromise. We offer the best decoration method for you!

Have you heard about a special printing technique called in-mold decoration (IMD)? This is a technique which simultaneously decoration while injection molding inside the mold die when manufacturing plastic products. 

We are convinced that the IMD technique will surely satisfy your needs.

Introduction for a wide variety of decorative methods suitable for al kinds of different needs

We contribute to our customers by offering a wide variety of solutions including special printing, special coating and in-mold transferring for various component parts such as cell phones, home appliances, general goods, automobiles and play equipments. Feel free to contact us for more information.

In-mold Transfer (IMR)

Decoration of delicate design such as photographs and metallic sheen appearance.

Thermoject (T.J)

Decoration on large-scale molded products and for various textured finishes such as wood grain patterns.

On-demand Transfer Foil (ODF)

A printing method that requires no printing cylinder. Transfer foils with full-color and metallic sheen appearance can be produced.

In-mold

Value added along with plastic molding!Elaborative design, high functionality and quick delivery.

What is an In-mold Transfer System?

An in-mold transfer system is one type of IMD methods which plastic injection molding is conducted after a pre-printed transfer foil is positioned in the mold (high-accuracy positioning), achieving simultaneously transferring onto the plastic surface while molding .

Insert a transfer foil into mold.

Fix the transfer foil.

injection molding.

Remove the finished product from the mold.

NIS In-mold Transfer System – Merit/Feature

Point.1
Surface decorating Simultaneously when injection molding
Multi-color print decoration is possible Simultaneously when injection molding achieving a significant reduction of the number of manufacturing processes. And yet the molding cycle is still as fast as that of a normal molding process.

Point.2
A wide variety of design requirements can be satisfied.
A wide variety of design requirements can be satisfied.
With the use of metal evaporation, pearl pigment or metallic ink, high-quality texture equivalent to plating or painting can be obtained, satisfying a wide variety of design requirements.

Point.3
Decoration on a cubic (3D shape) surface is possible.
Decoration on any complex cubic shape, uneven surface such as grooves or projections, or crimp-shape surface.

Point.4
No need for secondary processing
There is no need for overcoating and heat processing after the in-mold transfer process, eliminating risks of curves or bends caused by reheating.

Point.5
More functions added on the decorated surface
Different from painting, plating or printing, this is an environmental friendly dry process requiring no solvent.

Point.6
Environmental friendly
Decoration on any complex cubic shape, uneven surface such as grooves or projections, or crimp-shape surface.

FSR INMOLD SOLUTION

A further Challenge fo IMD! An extra complex 3D shape/A difficult decoration!

3D shape products became possible to be used IMD. And not only high position accuracy,But also a various colorful decoration became possible.l

On-demand Transfer Foil Printer

Value added along with plastic molding!Elaborative design, high functionality and quick delivery.

What is an On-demand Transfer Foil Printer?

To print a traditional transfer foil, proofreading for printing must be first conducted based on electronic data of design image, and then a printing plate needs to be produced. Such printing plate is not necessary for the on-demand transfer foil printer, which enables printing of a transfer foil directly from design data. 

As long as you have design data, a transfer foil will be produced in 20 to 30 minutes. Also, aluminum-evaporation foils can be printed as well as normal colors. Excellent repeatability can be greatly is available through layered gradations on designed evaporation foils.

On-demand transfer foil printer – Merit/Feature

Point.1
Transfer foils can be produced from a single piece to small-lot
production.

Even a single piece of transfer foil can be printed in the same way as a PC printer.

Point.2
No printing plate is required.
No printing plate needs to be produced, contributing to quick delivery and cost reduction. This also allows rapid responses to urgent design change.

Point.3
Evaporation foils can be printed at the same time.
Allows for a complex design such as printing of color gradations on a patterned evaporation foil, which previously had been almost impossible.

Point.4
Complete dry process
This is an environmentally friendly method that uses no solvent or ink.

Point.5
Allows for printing of long foils
Traditional methods do not allow printing of any pattern longer than the circumference of the printing plate. This method, however, can materialize a long pattern up to about 1.5 m due to no printing plate being required.
