Latest generation Lasertec 210 installed this month
The new Lasertec 210 (LT210) machine arrived at Standex Engraving Mold-Tech Michigan this month, doubling the plant's capacity to process large tooling.
For the first time, Mold-Tech Michigan will now be able to laser engrave texture onto tooling that measures 1.8 m x 2.1 m x 1.2 m and weighs up to 10 tonnes. Previously, molds for large pieces like door panels, step pads and box top rails were completed on an older LT210 at a slower rate. We are looking forward to providing our customers with even faster turn-around times, with the additional capacity to engrave on larger tools.
Todd Wilmore, Laser Manager at Mold-Tech Michigan said, « The latest generation technology allows the laser head to operate at higher speeds and frequencies that could allow for processing to be upwards of seven times faster for some applications. »
With the addition of the LT210 in North America, this plant now joins our other Standex Engraving Mold-Tech locations who also currently have this machine in Krefeld, Germany; Suzhou, China and Dongguan, China. Other locations with laser capacities are in Portugal and Italy, but with other varieties of the latest machines.
