CLASSIC STRIPES PVT. LTD
Washing Machine Fascia is printed on PET film. The detailing of the numbers, illuminated area and the emboss effect for push buttons makes this fascia a remarkable job. It was very challenging to achieve the trapping/overlap of dot texture and the illuminate area. During the Post curing stage it was difficult to manage the embossing and blanking, the Start/Pause button has a DOT in the centre to aid the visually impaired person to operate the washing machine , challenge was to get the correct emboss DOT height to serve it’s purpose and with a constant monitoring we could achieve it.
