Laser engraving of moulds
The traditional technologies for texturing moulds are now semi-manual and capable of doing engravings that are two-dimensional or, at most, have two levels of drilling depth.
Laser markers go beyond this paradigm. 3D texture can be achieved automatedly and repeatably by means of laser ablation.
More specifically, laser engraving on moulds makes it possible to give the metal surfaces microstructures, very fine wefts, markings, writing etc., in two or three dimensions; in other words, to make parts and moulds with surface finishes that resemble the natural fabric, or the animal skin (crocodile, for example), or pure design geometrical elements.
