Pleasing Look Aesthetic feel Types of Mold Texturing Mechanical Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Abrasive Blasting

Electrical Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Chemical Engraving CNC Engraved Areas of use Logos and Patterns

CNC Engraved Basic Milling Operation Work-piece clamped down Tool path computer generated Drill follows and cuts

path Abrasive Blasting Method Abrasive particles etch tool Commonly sand High Velocity Matte, decorative, and textured finish

Abrasive Blasting Advantages Cheap Quick Disadvantages Good for matte surface textures

Inconsistent surface finish Abrasive Blasting Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) Created using electrodes Shaped tool or wire graphite

Plasma Etched in CNC pattern EDM Procedure Placed in dielectric fluid Discharge created Plasma erodes surface Follows CNC path

Dielectric fluid washes debris away EDM Advantages Complex and simple surfaces Dimensional Accuracy (+/- .0005 in)

High Range of Materials Soft and Hard Mold Steels Can be fully automated EDM Disadvantages Low production volume

Slow cutting EDM scale Must be post-polished Blind holes Difficult Debris Removal

EDM Chemical Engraving Patterning Process using a acid bath Chemical Engraving Procedure
