Smart surface technology integrates electronic functions into the surface of the product. Both optics and functionality can be perfectly combined with one another in the future car interiors using smart surface technology. The display and control functions can be hidden when not in use, the interior is converted into a decorative surface. The control functions or information only appeared when required by backlighting or directly on the interior surface.
To produce smart surfaces, IME and IMG technology must be combined. IME is the abbreviation for in-mold electronics. The surface is electronically printed on a polyester film with multi-layer decorative and conductive inks. A module that consists of several parts (controls, decorative strips, mechanical buttons, backlights, LEDs, etc.) and is combined into a decorative film with a single surface. IMG is an abbreviation for in-mold graining. IMG is often used to manufacture textured surfaces. The smooth IME film is heated in the engraved form and heated in vacuum to a 3D film and formed in vacuum to a 3D film. CDM-TECH is the only Chinese company that has the capabilities for 3D film deformation by IMG.
