Revolutionary laser machine for industrial engraving & 3D texturing

Project description

Precision plastic and metal engravings

From chemical etching to laser texturing, current mould/die makers and suppliers are hindered by high installation and running costs and a lack of flexibility and repeatability. For the metal and plastic products market, this poses a major setback. The EU-funded INFINITE 2.0 project uses a combination of software and hardware to boost speed, accuracy and ability to reproduce fine details on complex 3D geometries, offering a new generation of laser machines for moulds, dies and components. In fact, this laser technology is up to 50 % faster in processing time and in flexibility without increasing market price.


The physical appearance of metal and plastic products is increasingly becoming a key contributor to quality perception and functional performances. Apart from aesthetics, an overall smooth edge and surface finish continuity can have a significant effect on performance, functionalities and service life of critical plastic and metal products, giving them a higher market value. Industries are thus pushing suppliers and mould/die makers for technologies with higher performance in surface texturing and engraving. In this context, traditional technologies – e.g. chemical etching and current laser texturing – are however hindered by severe limitations, most of all their lack of flexibility and repeatability, high installation and running costs.

Addressing this big challenge, ML Engraving, expert in laser engraving and texturing, presents INFINITE 2.0 a reliable solution for surface processing for distinct functional and aesthetic properties. Aimed at the manufacturing and consumer product sectors, INFINITE 2.0 uses a combination of software and hardware innovations to drastically improve speed, accuracy & ability to reproduce fine details on complex 3D geometries, offering a new generation of laser machines for moulds, dies and components. Our innovative machine surpasses existing technologies through the provision of high precision, industrial productivity rate (process time reduced by 40-50%) and flexibility at market price (15-50% cheaper), allowing end users to achieve complex design and functional performance.

Users from a wide range of industries can directly take advantage of the benefits of INFINITE 2.0 to extend their market and enhance their business exploits. With INFINITE 2.0 we expect to boost our company growth, generating within a 5-year period a cumulative revenue and profit of €74.4M and €30.5M respectively, and creating 40 additional jobs in our company.
