Inmold Decoration Technology (IMD)

Thanks to Inmold Decoration (IMD), sophisticated and appealing surfaces can be made in a single-stage process: A printed film is guided as an endless strip through the mold. During the back injection the decor print is transferred to the part, thus ensuring a scratch-resistant surface with appealing surface aesthetics.

Your benefits

  • Manufacture of parts with premium-quality surfaces - off-mold
  • Creation of scratch- and media-resistant surfaces
  • Manufacture of ready-to-install components thanks to single-stage process
  • Functionalization of parts possible with IML sensor films
  • Enormous range of design options in the decor
  • High degree of flexibility in production thanks to quick change of film decor
  • High process reliability thanks to established process engineering and precise film positioning with sophisticated feed technology

Highlights

  • Turnkey production solutions from a single supplier
  • Excellent integration of film periphery in injection molding machines from KraussMaffei
  • Optimized ergonomics for quick film/decor changing with unique accessibility
  • Highly flexible: Modular, mobile automation cell for operation on different injection molding cells
  • Optimum use of production space: Small installation areas especially for two-platen solutions with the CX and GX series
