The recent installation of a Laser P 4000 U, at Standex Engraving Mold-Tech in Porto, Portugal has once again expanded the capabilities of the largest laser texturing company in the world.
It’s not just big, it’s huge, using a gantry system to accommodate oversized tools. As the world’s largest 5-axis laser texturing system, it can engrave even the heaviest tools measuring the size of a small car with endless design possibilities.
This machine engraves injection molds and nickel shell steel master models to create products like truck and auto bumpers, instrument door panels, central consoles, airbag covers, headlights, aircraft and luxury yacht interiors, home appliances and big-screen TVs.
It is the only machine of its kind in Southern Europe, serving the largest toolmaking market in the region to ease logistical challenges and reduce lead times for our customers.
The extra-large capacity applies distinct, multiple-layer textures on molds measuring up to 4 x 3 x 1.5 meters with no weight limitations. The machine maneuvers around a stationary target which means that large tools do not need to be disassembled to be engraved, saving valuable time and money. To prepare for the installation, the floor was reinforced, with rubber blocks and silicone edging added to handle vibrations.
This new machine joins 28 other laser texturing machines of various sizes located world-wide at Standex Engraving Mold-Tech. We are one company operating in 23 countries with 45 manufacturing and design studios, each on using the same approach to taking care of our customers by applying identical operational directives, we guarantee texture harmony on global programs.
