endless diversity

Haptically and visually appealing surfaces for almost all types of plastic products:
The innovative 5-axis LaserTec process from Eschmann Textures uses laser ablation where a laser beam removes layer by layer from the tool surface of a plastic injection die. This produces multi-layered surface textures, ranging from complex architectural or geometric patterns to textile, natural patterns and fine textures. This method is also suitable for manufacturing functional surfaces such as for light reflection, friction, aerodynamics, etc.

Our team of specialists realises textures, engravings, micro textures, markings and inscriptions from 2D to complex 3D geometries in the shortest possible time.

Our laser technology centre in Wiehl can process tools with weights of up to 20 tonnes. We also offer 5-axis LaserTec services at our locations in France (Viry) and UK (Glossop) as well as worldwide with carefully selected project partners.


LASERtex at a glance

  • fully digital process chain with high repeatability
  • realistic 3D component texturing(mapping) in interaction with the user to optimally align the surface texture
  • almost unlimited freedom of design
  • direct lasering of complex 3D textures
  • lasering and etching can be combined
  • suitable for steel, aluminium and – with some restrictions– for electrode materials (copper, graphite, tungsten)
  • ideal for technical applications such as ribs, honeycomb textures and fine lettering
  • high-precision five-axis processing with fibre laser
