From 23 October 2012 we will present – for the first time together with our partners Siebdruckservice Flottmann GmbH (Screen Print Service) and Franz Klein GmbH – our complete ImageBlast System to a broad audience at the glasstec fair 2012 in Dusseldorf.
We fear no comparison with other manufacturing or finishing processes and will therefore demonstrate live the application of our technical photographic sandblast at glasstec 2012.
Our target audience are designers, architects and all creative people, who are interested in new manufacturing processes for their ideas and maybe having difficulties with the current manufacturing techniques such as laser engraving, CNC engraving, screen printing, sandblasting templates of vinyl.
See for yourself and visit us at glasstec 2012. You’ll find us in hall 12 – booth no. A03.
For your explanation – What is the ImageBlast high detail masking system?
Our masking system for sandblasting and powder blasting applications is based on the latest photoresist technologies. Our special foils / (photoresist sandblasting materials) don’t have to be cutted by hand or via plotter, they just need simple UV-light to get ready to use. You may imagine thereby that, the finer the details of the artwork are, the better it is to work with our system.
The photoresist masking system of HARKE Imaging enables you to optimize the finishing of glass, stone and other materials by making complexe processings simple and cost effective.
Our current systems are splitted into two main applications:
Currently we offer in this area five different photoresist types of film and the necessary special software solution needed for the decorative design of glass, stone, ceramic and metal.
- Engraving of drinking glasses, such as red wine balloons and engraving of glass trophies
- Reliefengraving of Porcelain cups and dishes
- Engraving of flat glass panels, glass doors and facades up to a size of 1,3 m x 3,5 m
- Fotorealistic engravings onto stone, such as portraits and structures
- Mold etching applications, or engraving of sheets made of stainless steel in the field of interior design and mold making
- Trophy engraving
In this area we have been offering this year a complete system for the industrial processing of technical glass and ceramics.
- MEMS Packaging
- LENS Packaging
- Mikrofluidik – Lab on Chip Systems
