Products and Services

Laser Engraving offers superior features previously unavailable on products, such as multiple gloss levels, the elimination of paint and optimized scratch performance, including the ability to create nano-finishes to enhance function. Chemical Engraving produces carefully designed textures and finishes without seams or distortion. Exclusive to Standex Engraving Mold-Tech, Digital Transfer Technology guarantees consistency, pattern integrity and texture harmony around the world. Architexture Design Studio uses proprietary technology with proven expertise to create and test custom textures. An original texture is designed to offer beauty and function, then a graphic hybrid of the texture is wrapped on digital 3D forms using Fitto-Form technology. The texture is printed out using Rapid Texture Prototype technology to create a large-format skin that can be wrapped on a model for testing. This verification process is called Model-Tech® which is exclusive to Standex Engraving Mold-Tech. Tool Enhancement services increase the wear resistance of the mold. Processes include Primeform anti-scratch, laser hardening in localized areas, Tribocoat® and Release Coat. Tool Finishing and ongoing support allows customers to achieve outstanding quality while saving valuable time. These services include laser micro-welding, polishing and lapping, laser cladding to accommodate engineering changes, mold assembly, tool management, maintenance, texture repair and on-site support.
