Proprietary In-mold Technology

What is In-mold Decoration?

In-mold Decoration is a process in which a pre-printed film (In-mold Decoration foil) is inserted into a mold, plastic resin is filled into the mold and then only the printed graphic is transferred during the injection process by the heat and pressure of injection molding. Unlike traditional post-mold decorating technologies, the In-mold Decoration alternative makes it possible to effectively create more beautiful exterior designs. This is a groundbreaking technology that was developed by YOSHIDA TECHNOWORKS in 1973.
We have continued to make technological advances around our proprietary In-mold Decoration technology and have developed various In-mold Decoration technology, including double-sided In-mold Decoration, a process that enables the front and rear surface of molded products to be decorated simultaneously, NCVM In-mold Decoration for a beautiful metallic finish without signal interference, indium In-mold Decoration, a two-shot In-mold Decoration technology that gives greater depth to the decoration by leveraging the texture of plastics and high contrast colors, and Glass Insert Molding with In-mold Decoration, a technology that fuses glass and resin together seamlessly for greater adhesion and water repellence.

Double-sided In-mold Decoration

A revolutionary molding technology that enables the decoration of both front and rear surfaces of plastic products.
Utilizing the thickness of plastic, it is now possible to create colorful designs with a sense of depth with ever-shorter lead times.

The advantages of plastic

Ceramics, metal, rubber and plastic are all used in manufacturing, though plastics are the newest material, and with advances in plastic materials and their manufacture, these materials have become indispensable in all manufacturing fields.
Opportunities for plastic are expanding as energy conservation requirements in recent years increase demand for lighter-weight products and packaging.
