With all the conversation regarding texturing SLA parts, I wanted to mention
one other available service. About two years ago we worked with Lee
Eisinger at Akron Metal Etching and he was able to develop a technique to
add textures to our Keltool molds. Since then he has textured about five
Keltool production molds for us with standard Mold-Tech finishes. The
results have been great. I believe that he has the ability to add any type
of texture to these molds. Lee has been texturing our conventional molds for
at least 20 years and I highly recommend Akron Metal Etching due to their
professionalism and quality. He has also done some very tricky selective
texturing for logos and lettering on some of our tools with excellent results.
