What are the advantages of In-Mold Decoration?
IMD combines appearance with functionality. Whether matte, high-gloss or in a metal look – you always get a classy user interface with a pleasant feel. Additional lighting can be used to set highlights and emphasize important control elements. The lower key surfaces create optimal finger guidance. This even makes blind operation possible without any problems. But IMD doesn’t just make your input system look good! The biggest advantage is the completely closed surface without unsightly gaps and edges. Because with In-Mold Decoration, you save on subsequent printing or gluing of plastic injection molded parts.

In-Mold Decoration for Capacitive Controls
In-Mold Decoration is particularly suitable for the integration of capacitive controls. We combine the noble user interface from one cast with the modern touch function. The circuit board with integrated capacitive fields is mounted directly behind the plastic part. The associated electronics unit also finds its place on the back of the board, so that no further circuit board is necessary. The capacitive fields can be individually implemented and arranged as keys, sliders or wheels. With illuminated symbols and fields we highlight important areas of your IMD solution – homogeneous, bright and durable. Symbols within the capacitive fields and larger areas such as logos can be illuminated in your desired color.

In-Mold Decoration in useDesign panels with in-mold decoration create a high-end design for any application. Due to the closed and easy-to-clean surface in combination with the noble appearance, however, IMD is mainly used in the automotive, white goods or medical technology sectors. In-Mold Decoration convinces with diverse design possibilities, durability, resistance and creates a visual and haptic highlight for your application.
