If you are considering IME for your product, it is important to work with our experts from the beginning of your project, which can be just an idea you have, or your actual design. We will validate your design compatibility with IME.
The design considerations for IME closely mirror the design considerations for traditional IMD. However, it is best not to take an existing injection molded part and make it into an IME part, as the injection mold tooling will probably have to change. Existing mold tools will generally not work unless they were designed for in-mold decorating or IME.
