Rapitypes now offers Structural Textures which can be applied directly to our RIM PU tooling, A range of textures are available that result in textured parts even with our proprietary in-mould coating process.
Structural textures are another indication of our continuing commitment to new moulding techniques and enhancements in the field of PU Reaction Injection Moulded parts. Applications include enclosures, touch points, cases, covers, user interfaces, display surrounds and mountings, equipment supports, seating, divider panels and a myriad of other uses.
Structural Textures are straightforward to implement although there may be an impact on tool draught in certain circumstances. All tool surfaces which require texturing will be machined from aluminium, although other parts of the tool can remain in tooling board. We can process tools with a weight of up to 20 t
Our specialist team will be happy to discuss engraving, micro structuring, marking and lettering for 2D and 3D geometries – please contact us
- Digital process with high repeatability.
- Freedom of design through graphic developmentor by scanning templates.
- The structuring technology is suitable for steel, aluminium and – with somerestrictions– for electrode materials (copper, graphite, tungsten).
- In certain circumstances the process may be viable for technical applications (ribs, honeycomb structures), finelettering and so on.
