The engraving of logos, artwork, text and gradations into the surface of mold tooling is a quick and cost effective way to make your product unique; or to mark it with decorative or required information. Mold-Tech engravings help to eliminate secondary processes which were once necessary for part labeling. Our Laser Engraving provides the highest quality, ultra fine detail available today. Laser Tech can be used in any tooling material as well as graphite and copper electrodes. With over 50 years of engraving experience, and 20 laser engraving machines worldwide, Mold-Tech has developed specialized applications that have advanced our capabilities beyond anything available in the market today.

Low Gloss Texture Application
In 2001, Mold-Tech developed a state-of-the-art, low-gloss texture application called MicroMatte. Using micro-laser technology, MicroMatte allows textured plastic parts to achieve gloss levels that are otherwise not possible without paint. Today, MicroMatte is the premier low-gloss textured surface application in the world. MicroMatte not only significantly lowers the gloss on textured plastic parts; it also helps to create a soft, rich, realistic appearance on almost any textured surfaces.

Seamless Digital Texturing
Wrapping complex parts with geometric textures has always been a challenge. Due to previous limitations in the texturing process it was simply not possible to produce geometric textured parts without unsightly seams. Mold-Tech’s continued commitment to advancing the texturing process has led to a breakthrough that we call Render-Tech. Render-Tech is a Digital Part Rendering Technology that allows us to texture any type of part with any type of texture, seamlessly! By using our advanced rendering software, combined with your surface data, Mold-Tech can help you produce beautiful plastic parts without the plastic look.

Prototype Part Texturing
Model-Tech was invented by Mold-Tech more than 10 years ago as a way to produce a textured part without the need for costly tooling. By “wrapping” your part with texture, Model-Tech simulates your production parts finished textured appearance without building any tooling. Virtually any material type can be textured with Model-Tech. From models to SLA, SLS and fiberglass materials, Model-Tech allows you the freedom to design and market your products before a single mold is ever built. Do you have a product evaluation or product photo shoot coming-up? Let Model-Tech help turn your idea into a reality. Model-Tech can also be used to wrap your part model with texture to allow for urethane casting.
