Insertable Nomenclature for Multiple Languages

A character display is provided for a molded plastic part wall surface using a molded insert 10 of a contrasting color material. As seen in Fig. 1, insert 10 includes a planar portion 11 with embossed characters 12 extending in one direction, and a series of opposed bosses 13 extending in the opposite direction. Also projecting in the same direction as bosses 13 are locating pins 14.

The insert 10 is placed in a plastic mold, as illustrated in Fig. 2, where recesses, not shown, in the lower mold cavity 17 receive the locating pins 14 to correctly position the insert during molding. The distance between the character surface 19 of the character embossments and the surfaces 20 of bosses 13 slightly exceeds the depth of the mold cavity, causing the insert to be compressively retained between cavity surfaces hen the mold sections 17 and 18 are closed. The part defined by mold cavities 17 and 18 is then formed by conventional injection or transfer molding techniques, to present the characters of insert 10 at the finished surface of part 22, as shown in Fig. 3.
