Cadillac Omega Door Sill
Multi-Color China worked with General Motor’s component maker for an automotive application requiring IML technology to develop a door sill lens for Cadillac. This application commonly utilizes molded, machined metal, or machined printed plastic components. The design intent of the Cadillac door sill lens required clean and defined graphics with a backlighting effect.
We were able to meet the challenge and successfully select materials with adequate molding resin and film to exceed the stringent quality and performance requirements of our client. Our expertise in graphics distortion was required to readjust our printing artwork to compensate for the resin shear during the molding process. This led to consistent graphic placement of the Cadillac emblem. Our success is attributable to the collaboration between the Multi-Color China design team and the customer’s engineers, which allowed for an open dialogue regarding the manufacturability elements of the project.
