In Mold Graining
The In-Mold Graining (IMG) process, a vacuum-forming technique, efficiently textures leather and bonds injection-molded plastic parts at once, making it cost-effective and widely used in crafting automotive and aviation interiors like instrument panels and door trims.
TDL:Leading Company of In Mold Graining in China!
Commencing its journey in in-mold graining (IMG) tool creation back in 2008, TDL has since established a robust portfolio of successful IMG initiatives aimed at enhancing automotive interiors. Serving manufacturers within the automotive interior parts sector, we’ve demonstrated our proficiency in delivering meticulously grained pieces where the leather covering can possess a thickness of up to 3.5mm, thus ensuring a soft-touch surface.
By applying nickel shell mold graining, we’re capable of delivering sophisticated vehicle interior components, including instrument panels and door trims. These products not only possess a pleasant tactile sensation but are also crafted with a strong commitment to environmental responsibility and efficiency.
Aligning with TDL for your automotive interior parts production means partnering with a company that’s not just a service provider, but a valuable tool in your manufacturing process, dedicated to one-stop solutions that consistently deliver quality and efficiency.

IMG-L & IMG-S
IMG-L & IMG-S TO CREATE SKIN OF INTERIOR PARTS
IMG-S (In Mold Grain-Skin): It is a smooth film material that uses a mold engraved with a grain pattern to create a skin in the shape of an automotive interior with a grain. Before laminating the skin to the injection molded parts, workers can stitch patterns on it.
IMG-L (In Mold Grain-Laminate): It uses a mold engraved with a leather pattern to form textured skin in the shape of an interior part from a smooth film material. Then laminates the skin to the injection molded plastic parts by vacuum adsorption. IMG-L equipment has low investment and high efficiency, and the skin used differs from IMG-S.
IN-MOLD GRAINING / IMG TECHNOLOGY
IMG technology is widely used in the car door trim, instrument panels, and IP trims. The injection molded parts in contact with people are covered with soft skin. This flexible design can improve the car’s decorative effect and the sound and heat insulation effect of the vehicle, thereby improving the comfort and safety of the occupants in the car.
