With the innovative LASERTEC Shape technology, DMG MORI has set new standards in the mould making sector. The laser texturing of geometrically defined surface structures is more environmentally friendly than conventional etching and provides significant design freedom with at the same time highest reproducibility. Furthermore, the surface properties can be influenced in this procedure in a targeted way. Tool and mould makers benefit from this in almost all industries, where products also set themselves apart from the competition with individually designed surfaces: Fittings in the automotive industry, mobile phone cases, jewellery or drinks bottles. The LASERTEC Shape series from DMG MORI provides suitable production solutions: With the LASERTEC 45 Shape, the LASERTEC 75 Shape as well as the large models LASERTEC 125 Shape and LASERTEC 210 Shape, the machine tool manufacturer covers practically all component sizes.
The introduction of the LASERTEC Shape technology was a big step for tool and mould makers. Particularly in automotive engineering, there has since been a future-oriented alternative to conventional etching. Other industries benefit from the significantly higher precision compared to conventional milling. Blow moulds for PET bottles, or for example watch faces in the watch-making industry can be equipped with finest structures, but also lettering and engravings. “Laser texturing provides almost limitless possibilities for the design of technical surfaces with absolute reproducibility”, Benjamin Krummenauer, Product Manager Shape at SAUER Gmbh – a subsidiary of the DMG MORI Group – explains with regard to the large benefit of machining with LASERTEC Shape machines.
