This month’s trade shows to feature disruptive innovations

When new technology is so advanced it becomes a disruptor in the industry, you simply have to see it to believe it. This month, the global market will have the opportunity to experience our latest game-changing technology at two trade shows.

For the first time ever, the new Soft Trim Tooling technology from Standex Engraving Mold-Tech and GS Engineering will be featured at the K-Show in Düsseldorf, Germany from October 16 to 23, and also at the Automotive Interiors Show in Novi, Michigan from October 22 to 24, 2019.

What’s disruptive? We are selling time.

Visitors will learn first-hand about the disruptive innovations that allow us to provide the fastest delivery of IMG Tooling in the global market, featuring bespoke textures rendered fit-to-form with laser fidelity. A Rapid Metal Model can be made in only three days, then it can be laser engraved with fine textures without distortion or seams. This type of texture application on Soft Trim Tooling has never been possible until now, giving you total design freedom with beautifully creative textures (geometric, linear, performance features) at laser precision fidelity.

It’s all about speed of delivery to radically cut lead times, which gives you the flexibility to obtain perfection with the part design and manufacturing process. These rapid results also completely eliminate production risk. A damaged shell can be replaced within 24 hours. We offer replacement plans that can provide a new tool in three days or in as little as a week depending on your needs.

We eliminate the constraints placed on our customers of never having enough time as trends change. For example, the growing trend of short design cycles has also compressed lead times for tooling. And more tooling is needed now than ever before to accommodate multiple interior packages offered on larger vehicle platforms. Soft skins are increasing in popularity in economy models as a point of differentiation between the competition. Hybrid and electric vehicle models are also embracing this trend. As the world leaders in Soft Trim Tooling, combined with our end-to-end tooling solutions and global service, we secure your success from the beginning and stay by your side through to the end of production.

We look forward to showcasing our new master modelling options, molds and also part samples at this month’s trade shows and invite you to experience the future of Soft Trim Tooling that has never before been possible. To learn more about our rapid results please visit:
