Injection molding is one of the most commonly used production processes for plastics. This is rightly so as it offers a viable solution for the mass production of high-quality injection automotive parts from a broad range of polymers. In the automotive industry, where consistency, safety, and quality are of utmost importance, automotive plastic injection molding is an important manufacturing process.

In the automotive industry, repeatability—or the ability to consistently produce identical parts—is crucial. Because automotive plastic injection molding typically relies on robust metal molds, the final molded automotive parts produced using the mold are practically identical. Some factors come into play with injection molding, but injection molding is a highly repeatable process if the mold has a good design and finishing.

The distinction between IMD, IML, IMR, and IMF

IMD: In-Mole Decoratiom, IMD is the current international popular surface decoration technology, mainly used in the surface decoration and functional panels of home appliances, commonly used in mobile phone window lenses and shells, washing machine control panels, refrigerator control panels, air conditioner control panels, Appearance parts such as panels and signs in various fields of automobile dashboards and rice cooker control panels.

IMD is divided into IML and IMR. The biggest difference between these two processes is whether there is a transparent protective film on the surface of the product.

IML: In-mold insert injection molding. Its very distinctive features are: the surface is a hardened transparent film, the middle is a printed pattern layer, and the back is a plastic layer. Because the ink is sandwiched in the middle, the product can prevent the surface from being scratched and scratched. Wear-resistant, and can keep the color bright and not easy to fade for a long time.

IMR: In-mold transfer

In this process, the pattern is printed on the film, and the film is attached to the mold cavity by a film feeder for injection molding. After injection molding, the patterned ink layer is separated from the film, and the ink layer is left on the plastic part to obtain a decorative pattern on the surface. There is no transparent protective film on the surface of the final product, and the film is only a carrier in the production process. But the advantage of IMR is the high degree of automation in production and the low cost of mass production. Disadvantages of IMR: The printed pattern layer is on the surface of the product with a thickness of only a few microns. After the product is used for a period of time, the printed pattern layer is easily worn off, and it is also easy to fade, resulting in an unsightly surface. In addition, the new product development cycle is long, the development cost is high, and the pattern color cannot be flexibly changed in small batches, which are also weaknesses that the IMR process cannot overcome.

First of all, it is necessary to explain the concept:

IMD includes IML, IMF, IMR

IML: IN MOLDING LABEL ﹝ Printing rubber and plastic combination ﹞


IMR: IN MOLDING ROLLER﹝The focus is on the release layer on the rubber compound. PET FILM → printing release agent → printing ink → printing adhesive → inner plastic injection → ink and plastic bonding → the rubber material will automatically release from the ink after the mold is opened. In Japan, it is called thermal transcription. This machine uses the ROLL TO ROLL method, and the alignment is operated by a CCD computer. ﹞

At present, some people in China call IMR IMD, and IML is independent of IMD. The most fundamental difference is the difference between IML and IMR on the lens surface, IML has PET or PC sheet on the surface, while IMR has only ink on the surface. IMD is a relatively complicated process, and there are only a handful of domestic manufacturers with relatively mature technology, so I can only introduce a little bit of fur, please bear with me.

IML's sheets are made of PET or PC. This may be different from the last post. It may be that the technical level of each company is different. I don't think I need to explain more about the material of PET and PC. Plastic particles generally use PMMA and ABS. IML and IMR have their own advantages. IMR is not very wear-resistant. Some of Nokia and Moto’s mobile phones use IMR technology, which will cause scratches if it takes a little longer. a certain area.

Traditional decorative injection moulding processes produce a wide variety of plastics such as: pressure-sensitive adhesive labels, shrink oversleeve labels; primer and offset prints; thermal transfer foils; decals And so on, all fall into this category. All of these products require secondary processing to be made, and their production process has recently faced challenges from a one-step production process, which is "In-Mold Labeling" (In-Mold Labeling). The so-called in-mold labeling technology (IML) can make various parts processed by plastic product manufacturers look like "without labels", and the quality of the printed label patterns cannot be achieved by some post-color decoration methods. of. For example, image photos, undulating patterns, and even three-dimensional holographic patterns can be used as an integral part of the product, and the quality effect is better than those of products with labels on the outer surface. The plastic products processed and produced by the in-mold labeling process are more decorative in structure, and the quality of the packaging products can be reduced by 10% to 15%, while the strength of the side walls of the products is increased at the same time.

In-mold labeling process products are designed in a variety of styles, from flat lids of various shapes to 360° wrap-around labels, and products with 3, 4, 5, and even 8 sides can be designed. Rectangular, circular, square products with rounded corners, or products with corrugated side patterns. This is a unique technology where the "label" is made by simply wrapping a piece of moulded plastic liner around a piece of printed cardboard to create a complete flange.
