Why IMD ?
IMD is a simple and productive process. Versatile CMF designs are done inside of the tooling without any pre / secondary process, and the whole process is managed by a roll to roll system. Decoration is completed, including hard coat protection, with just a single shot molding.
User-Interface and functional features are also able to be incorporated.
