This is similar to a current process that allows plastic surfaces to be decorated with ink directly during injection molding. A pad printing machine transfers the printed image directly to the surface of the mold. The ink is then overmolded by the plastic melt from behind. However, we want to be able to shield some areas from being painted by the pad printing process.
The result would be an alternative to painted and laser etched parts
The solution we seek is analogous to the printing process known as lithography.
