一、What is IMT process?
IMT is the abbreviation of English Insert Mold Three-dimensional. It brings together a variety of decorative technologies, adopts the advantages of IML in FILM production, absorbs the advantages of IMR injection molding into mold transfer, combines digital printing photo effects with traditional screen printing processes. , Make IMT process applicability, widely used to make up for the limitations of the traditional appearance of decorative technology, to meet the high-level innovation of product appearance decoration. The emergence of IMT will replace the spraying, UV coating, electroplating, vacuum plating, screen printing, pad printing and other processes in the current industry, will drive product innovation across the appearance of the industry, to achieve a three-dimensional, photo, gradient, R angle and other Product appearance decoration effect, at the same time provide a better platform for innovation and implementation for the design industry!
二、IMT application area：
1、Computer industry: face shells including keyboards, mice, etc.
2、Automotive industry: dashboards, air conditioning panels, interior trims, lamp housings, logos, etc.
3、Appliance industry: Control decorative panels including rice cookers, washing machines, microwave ovens, air conditioners, refrigerators, etc.
4、Communication industry: including mobile phone keys, mobile phone lenses, mobile phone color covers, PHS and fixed telephone panels, window lenses.
5、Electronic industry: including MP3/MP4, calculator, VCD/DVD, electronic notebook, digital camera and other decorative surface shells, color covers and signs.
6、Other industries: including medical equipment, cosmetics boxes, decorative boxes, toys, sports and entertainment and leisure products, other packaging shells, etc；
三、IMT product advantages：
The IMT process is unique, combining the advantages of traditional process painting with IMT, IMR, and IMF processes to meet product market requirements and improve product appearance.
1、Photo-pattern decoration to achieve digital-grade, unique market, rich color gradient effect, fully reflects the gloss of the oil film.
2、Due to the high wear-resistant UV protection, the characters, LOGO's wear are eliminated, and the service life leads the current market products.Reliability can meet market demand (over coating and screen printing process) Decorative layer thickness is 30μm.
3、Product stability: Correct color registration for consistency and standardization of products, good 3D stereoscopic effect, full use of design art, appearance of decorative corners, and unique appearance of IMT process.
4、Diversified style: Metal plating or natural material special patterns can be created according to customer needs.
5、IMT products have a wide application market and cover other products such as electronics, automobiles, telecommunications, and home appliances. They have thoroughly improved the disadvantages of IML, eliminated the layered breakdown of products during consumer use, and provided reliable and lasting product performance.
6、 Decrease the decorative layer from 115μm of IML to 25μm. Improve the mechanical structure of the product and reflect the ultra-thin structure of the product. The decorative appearance of the photo promotes the fashion and appearance of the product and enhances the influence of the brand.
7、IMT pattern and LOGO use internal inserting process, high wear-resistant UV varnish protection, improved product appearance and durable wear reliability.
8、3D complex shape design: The application of FILM extensibility can successfully achieve the required product complexity appearance development and design requirements, IMT will achieve the formation and decoration at the same time, can effectively reduce costs and man-hours, replace the traditional process of spraying and silk screen, prompt production More stable, increase the production efficiency of UV glossy finish, three-dimensional change, can increase designer's freedom of product design.
