Eschmann Textures uses the innovative LaserTec process to offer new, previously unimagined possibilities to improve the quality, appearance and harmony of all types of decorative surfaces. The special feature: Ideas & inspirations can be transferred into production technology with virtually no limits thanks to LaserTec.
It is possible to quickly and cost-effectively attain decision-making assurance as early as the concept phase using 3D design visualisation. Decorative patterns developed in this way are lasered into the moulding tool at a later stage. This gives products a high-quality appearance – from individual parts through to standard products.
Technical functional structures are also easy to implement with the LaserTec process, e.g. for light reflection, friction, aerodynamics, etc.
We have made further investments for you by continuing to develop the technology and steadily expanding the areas of application. Since May 2013, we have also been offering laser processing on two ultra-modern and high-performance systems at our site in Gummersbach near Cologne. We can process tools with a weight of 1.7 t. (Gummersbach) and up to 20 t. (Glossop, UK) with the systems available.
Our specialist team can apply texturing, engraving, microstructuring, marking and lettering to 2D geometries through to complex 3D geometries for your project in no time at all.
Fully digital process chain with high repeatability
Realistic 3D component structuring (mapping) for optimum decision-making – interaction with the end user is possible to align the structure
Almost unlimited freedom of design through graphic development or by scanning templates and presenting them in greyscale
Direct lasering of complex 3D structures
Lasering and etching can be combined (e.g. for non-distorting textile structures, geometric patterns, etc.)
Laser technology is suitable for steel, aluminium and – with some restrictions– for electrode materials (copper, graphite, tungsten)
Also idea for technical applications (ribs, honeycomb structures), fine lettering and much more ...
LASERTEC – PROCESS SEQUENCE
Inspiration Freedom of design through graphic development or by scanning templates and presenting them in greyscale.
The basis – your tool data Identification of the areas of the structure based on the final tool data (.igs. /.stp / .catia)
"Chess Board" checker Identification of surface defects and optimisation of the structure in terms of size and development as a basis for the 3D rendering
3D rendering – the virtual part Decision-making support for the end user through realistic graphic representation – also possible with colour gradations and shading.
Tool mapping – and now you are all set A negative structure based on the customer's approval as a basis for the laser process. Structures can also be positively lasered depending on the respective requirement.
Through to the result... Processing simulation after setting up the tool and 5-axis processing.
