Back Molding Technology

The Wittmann Battenfeld Back Molding technology is used for the production of ready to assemble molded parts as well as with decorated films and fabrics, and offer some specialties with regard to the control technology. The In-mold decoration (IMD) is used in decorated films, where a pattern is bonded to a special carrier film and is subsequently released and attached to the part surface. The in-mold labeling (IML) is where the back molding of plain thermo formed film is fixed to the mold either mechanically, by electrostatic, or by vacuum. This process is used with fabrics by the insertion of textile into the mold cascade-type injection process using hot runner shut-off nozzles or injection compression.
