In-mold

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.

Heat and pressure generated from the injected melted resin are used to transfer the pattern while molding (simultaneous transferring while molding ), producing clear and obvious decoration on a complex, three-dimensional shape which previously had been impossible. There is no need for secondary processing, which will totally shorten manufacturing processes and reduce cost. In addition, With surface decoration ,increased hardness and higher abrasion property of the surface can be performed, making it easier to produce high value-added products. Also, there is no need for overcoating such as painting.
