• Forming complex shapes while meeting durability needs for trim handled frequently
A wide variety of gear knobs have been manufactured by Northern Engraving. Complex forms highlight the metal character of the trim. Most gear knob trim is decorated in the flat sheet, formed and crimped around a plastic carrier. Aluminum in-mold can be used when the edge of the part is hidden. Technical finishes, brushed tints and woodgrain finishes have all been featured on metal gear knobs. Finishes are printed to coordinate with aluminum trim throughout the vehicle.
