A World of Possibilities
Wisconsin Engraving has continually invested in the future, and part of that future is 5-Axis Laser Texturing/Ablation. This technology has allowed us to tackle challenges that our competition won’t touch. Additionally, with our in-house 5-Axis laser technology, we can innovate with our customers without compromise and help speed up our customers’ time to market while reducing our environmental impact.
How the process works:
1. 3D Model
First we start with your CAD. Preferably in a native, STP, or IGES format.
2. Selection / Development of Textures
We work with an extensive catalog of predeveloped textures, giving you countless options to choose from. We also work with grayscale images in a file format that provides us depth, resolution, and quality. We can work with artwork designed directly into the CAD, with the ability to extract the art or geometry that you are looking for.
3. Applying Textures
We work with you to decide which textures, engravings, and markings go where on your part.
Do you want a geometric pattern in one area, a natural grain in another, a microstructure in a discrete location while applying QR codes, and anti-counterfeit features? With Wisconsin Engraving, it’s all possible!
Now that textures and surfaces have been chosen, we extract those surfaces, apply the callouts, and then have the opportunity to show you the renderings. That way, you can be confident that your final part will look exactly the way you want it.
