Our technology

Our innovative Surface Texture Adjustment Technology (STAT) is able to redefine the surface texture of a component simply, cleanly and without masking or creating surface damage

Texture Jet Ltd is delivering a tooling platform with world leading capability to selectively change the surface texture of components resulting in streamlined production lines. 

We offer an attractive alternative to existing technologies for roughening or etching of surfaces leading to reductions in factory and toxic footprint and operational costs.

Our end to end solution for surface texturing will deliver both off-the-shelf as well as bespoke machine tools which can be developed on-site in collaboration with OEMs.

Current approach vs STAT

STAT (Surface Texture Adjustment Technology) is able to redefine the surface texture of a component simply, cleanly, without masking on site and in-situ

Texturejet process

STAT reduces your toxic footprint

An attractive alternative to current technologies for roughening or etching of surfaces where reductions in factory and toxic  footprint are sought

sandblast

No need for grit / sand blasting

Many current technologies use grit / sand blasting to add texture leading to dust and contamination requiring a specialist environment. STAT can be applied directly on site, cleanly and simply.

Hydrofluoric acid to etch surfaces

For etching surfaces, current technologies require the use of Hydrofluoric acid which is dangerous in operation and difficult to dispose. STAT can be applied directly on site, cleanly and simply.

STAT applications

Surface preparation

Our technology can be used to roughen or apply a texture to components in order to prepare the surface for adhesive bonding, sealants and coatings. 

Unlike current technologies, no masking is required and the procedure can be carried out in-situ.

Quality control & analysis

Our Surface texture adjustment technology is an attractive alternative to the current technologies for etching of surfaces in-situ for quality control and analysis. 

The non-destructive testing market is projected to reach USD 18.88 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.78% from 2015 to 2020.
