Today’s innovations make smart choices for the future at K-Show 2022
A more environmentally responsible future can’t wait for tomorrow, effective solutions are needed today. New this year at the K-Show, Standex Engraving Mold-Tech will feature functional texture developments, imaginative designs, advanced tooling and performance services that are already saving energy consumption, reducing materials and adding overall value to various products. Visit us in Hall 1, Booth E69 from October 19-26 at Messe Düsseldorf, Germany.
We are One Partner that can support you every step of the way from texture design and verification through to engraving and then optimizing the tool for manufacturing performance. Throughout this process, we make it easy to reduce tomorrow’s environmental impact with progressive, cost-effective solutions today. Here are just two examples out of many to be featured at this year’s K-show:
Re-engineering a tool does not mean it needs to be completely replaced. A two-tonne set of molds will demonstrate how our tool performance services can seamlessly modify an existing tool with invisible texture matching, laser cladding and laser welding, proprietary coatings and try-out capabilities. Three sets of part modifications will be featured, all created from the same tool, saving costs in materials and energy consumption to create new parts.
The Manta Project and IMG (In Mold Graining)
Working with multiple suppliers can be complicated and expensive. The Manta Project is an internal case study demonstrating how we can make it easy by supporting the entire development of a product from texture design inspiration to the final production of a part. To begin, the quest to develop alternative textures to leather-look grains inspired our designers into dozens of options K-show visitors can explore on the ingenious Wonderwall. Three Manta sculptures will showcase the resulting designs, one will be wrapped in the final skin created with an IMG tool.
IMG was chosen as the method of Soft Trim Tooling to produce the Manta because of its low energy consumption, decreased carbon dioxide emissions and reduced cost to operate and produce the parts. As an example, by maintaining a constant temperature, IMG consumes approximately 20% less energy than other molds like slush. Be sure to visit our stand to find out just how much IMG is saving our customers in money and especially time.
Standex Engraving Mold-Tech has become the global leader by offering our services from 45 locations in 22 countries, supporting Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), Tier 1 suppliers, mold makers and product designers. We look forward to meeting you at this year’s show.
