Certified surface textures

Surface textures have gathered the attention of designers and style centers as the ultimate frontier of product design. Colours and shapes have already been expanded in all their variants and nowadays textures and finishes help a high-quality product stand out. That’s why ML Engraving continuously invests its efforts in R&D, in order to develop updated and leading-edge solutions and services. Material ConneXion stated that 2D/3D textures and Micro Laser Grains by D.R.E® give to the final product a remarkable added value.

ML Engraving surfaces textures are engraved by laser, a technology with huge potentials. ML Engraving developed the digital process called D.R.E®- Design Rendering Engineering, which allows the style centre to directly interface with ML Engraving texture designers and technical Dept., for the definition of the texture and its mapping on the CAD file of the mold. This combined process allows to:
  • turn every creative idea into a texture file;
  • engrave 3D textures (natural, geometric, artistic);
  • save down times because the texture is elaborated and defined while the mold is under construction;
  • nullify distances thanks to the possibility to share digitally in real-time every information, every preview and every communication;
  • guarantee the exact and infinitive repeatability of the texture;
  • work on welded molds;
