Process In-mould printing
In-mould printing enables ink-printing to be caried out while the plastic part is still in the injection moulding machine.

When the plastic part has been moulded, and before the mould is opened, inc is applied to the part through porrous sections of the mould. The porres are so tiny that the inc can pass but the plastic is kept back.
