3004901 Technology of In-Mold Decoration (IMD) 1.0 1
Description In-mold decoration (IMD) comprises insertion of a film or foil into the cavity, followed by injection of polymer melts on the inner side of the insert to produce a part with the final finish defined by the decorative film/foil. This process is used to produce 3C product, and provides a cost-effective way of surface decoration that enhances the appearance of product, because no post treatment is needed. However, this process must consider the extra additional equipment cost, decorative film material, film positioning, and mold design. This course is very important for a mechanical department student who works about product development and manufacturing process design in the future.
