to ML Engraving

ML Engraving’s headquarters is set in Onore, at the foot of the Orobie Pre-Alps, not far from Bergamo. Our team of experts in digital design and laser technology applied to moulds is ready to welcome you. 
Our work entails engraving metal moulds to produce objects in plastic, rubber, silicon and even glass: they arrive smooth and we return them with the finishings you want. 
Our goal is to make your products unique and distinctive, and even optimise production. We are considered surface gurus because we enhance them with cutting edge textures, logos, lettering and accurate customisation.
We face the most daring challenges to create your ideas. 
Research & Development, digitalisation and attention to details are the pillars of our work. 
80 professionals
We are a multi-talented team which includes laser experts, texture designers, digital designers, digital artists and cad/cam designers. 
All industrial sectors
Our engraving services are suitable for moulds used for plastic, rubber and silicon. But also, the die casting and precision mechanics sectors.
Research & Development
We explore innovative technologies and solutions. Our R&D department has already developed 3 patents, 8 European projects and cutting edge engraving protocols.
Each project is unique for us. 
We start from its characteristics to create a combination of solutions best suited to your requests, relying on our ecosystem of services ensured by the DRE® digital process.
Thanks to the DRE® work process, our digital soul, we guarantee the correspondence between virtual preview and moulded product. This also means we are able to anticipate critical moulding issues, making the entire production process easier.
In addition to 20 constantly operating laser machines, we possess departments dedicated to sand blasting and laser etching operations, where we test hybrid solutions. Our ecosystem also includes sampling and prototyping services, as well as mould repairing and preparation treatments. 
Finally, when the job is completed, our logistics department will handle shipment of your carefully packaged moulds.

Our history and the fundamental events that have brought us to the present day. 
ML Incisioni Laser
It all started with Andrea Lodetti and Silvano Balduzzi who opened M.L. snc di Lodetti & Balduzzi on 28 October, known to everyone as ML Incisioni Laser. Intrigued by laser technology, the two started to experiment with it in the fields of marking and engraving to customise surfaces.
Laser engraving applied to moulds becomes our core business. 
We inaugurate our new premises in Onore (BG).

Installation of a gantry machine
The move to the new premises was due to installation of a gantry machine, the first in the world able to perform laser engraving on large dimension moulds. A 3x2.5 meter work surface enables us to engrave very large moulds. 
New businesses: Touch & Feel, Just in Time and Nuovo Cesello.
We become ML Engraving S.r.l.
We win INFINITE with which we start the ML Engineering department.
Touch & Feel becomes LST Factory, between style and industrialisation.
