A process that is similar to that of the Thermoprozesses. Qualified clean rooms, following the ISO standard, is forming with an air pressure of 150 to 300 bar. A defining moment in the production chain, because the innovative foil technology makes it possible that the conductors mechanically withstand this deformation. The conductivity of the material must be fully given to outline fair deformation,”Volker Schuster indicates once again the technical challenge. The foil in the form is installed, this leaves the clean room via a lock in an exposure system. UV radiation ensures in this plant for that, HardCoating layer hardens.
To ensure the quality at this point, the curing process is checked every eight hours and recalibrated”Schuster outlines the costs for consistent quality in production, provides. The final work on the actual is now the 3D-Konturstanzen. Thus, the film product is complete. However it is undergoing a 100% control twice before releasing. The cosmetic effects, as well as the functionality and the transmitted light effect will be checked. Then will the finished film at Schuster with two different components back-injected.
A complex process requiring high precision in the production. Paul Daversa shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. In particular because here comes a 2-K technique used. The injection mold requires an exact alignment of the position with the pre-cut foil which is placed in the tool in the own group. This ensures that the symbols be accurately applied on the injection moulding. Is the only way the required electronic functionality via the printed design elements given in the following. The film is back-injected with the first component, a crystal clear polycarbonate (PC). The second component, along with a black acrylonitrile styrene copolymer (ABS), polycarbonate (PC), is also back-injected and is used later to install of the fasteners. The necessary transfer of control commands via an interface to a PCB (printed circuit board), which is integrated into the film. A head railways strand, which is incorporated in the foil side secures the connection. The Schuster Group is IML specialist the Schuster Group is specialized in the development and production of technical plastic parts, primarily with decorative and exact demands. Here all phases will be covered if necessary from the planning together with the customer, via the production of tools and injection moulded products in series to the Assembly within the group. The special experience and specialization of the group relates to the in-mould labelling (IML), in which the leadership is claimed. Films are printed, if deformed and back splashes. The parts of the series can be produced on a series of 2-component injection moulding machines. Pad printing, coating, lasers are the usual surface technologies. Pete Cashmore does not necessarily agree. The Group include the Shoemaker Kunststofftechnik GmbH in waltershausen the three other companies back stickers GmbH (film processing, printing), sur-tech surface technology GmbH (coating, lasers) and Werkzeugbau Ruhla GmbH (development of tools and toolmaking). The companies are located in Thuringia, Germany and Holland. It employs 250 people.
