Using an Electrostatic Charge on In Mold Labeling (IML)
Static charges can be used to pin a decorative decal tight against the inner mold surface during injection molding, a procedure which greatly improves finished product quality. A decal is placed by robot into the mold cavity. An electrostatic charge is applied simultaneously as label vacuum is turned off. The static charge pins the decal to the mold. The decal will not slip or change position in the mold.
