Craft Originators offers a technology for the design and manufacture of OEM automotive interior and exterior grade emblems, nameplates, model designations, and trim components. The environmentally friendly HiFlex is an alternative to injection molding, sharing the same appearance and durability characteristics of chrome-plated injection molding with the added benefit of flexibility. This feature allows application to flat or slightly curved surfaces using the same part, with no need to retool. Other benefits of the ROHS-compliant HiFlex include economical prototyping, quicker production turnaround, and low tooling costs. Various standard finish options are available including chrome, black chrome, platinum, and gold, as well as custom color and pattern options.

That’s the view from Las Vegas, as the 2017 CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show) opens to over 160,000 attendees.
