Our clients

Our services cover the needs of manufacturers of automotive parts, furniture, kitchen utensils, packaging, and manufacturers of other items made of plastic or rubber.

We work with various steel and aluminum tool manufacturers all over the world. We are very proud of the many years of cooperation and trust from two world-renowned tire companies Continental and GoodYear.

Competitive advantages

Manual application of any patterns to uneven steel and aluminum surfaces, which are later on etched – the mechanical surface etching technique does not allow for any adaptation to the application of the patterns to uneven parts of the tool. The possibility of processing various shapes and sizes (aluminum, steel).

The application of any pattern/structure upon the customer’s request – a selected pattern is applied to the surface without changing the mechanical properties of the material. It is extremely important that a pattern joint cannot be recognized on the end product. The pattern is infinite.

Production time – we guarantee that the tool will be made no later than 15 working days from the tool delivery to the end product.

We are a specialized family business that is more adaptable and flexible than the competitors from abroad.

Chem-etch system™

It is a well-defined, standardized work system and the implementation of quality control at every stage of the photochemical etching in steel and aluminum tools. All procedures lead to the same result. Therefore, we can always meet the customer’s expectations.

The preparation of etching tools is particularly important. The result depends on the preparation. Toolmakers must provide the following requirements:
– You must necessarily remove the formed needle, which arises as a residual material at the processing point, from the workpiece (e.g. when turning, milling, drilling, grinding).
– The tool must be cleaned if it has been previously used.
– The surface of the tool must not be chrome-plated. If the tool has already been used, the chrome must be removed.

Where can the photochemical procedure or
photoetching be applied?

In this process, patterns are applied to steel or aluminum tool, which is used on the end product. On the tool, we obtain a pattern which will be later etched. We get a structured pattern which is etched in negative. These tools are then sprayed, blown, or thermoformed with the desired products or semi-finished products.

 

Patterns are optional; e.g., the appearance of leather, wood, dots, citrus peels, geometric patterns, or a combination of different patterns, etc. Such patterns improve the appearance of the product as well as its usefulness (mechanical damage is less visible, better adhesion, easier deformation, where required, etc.).

About us

Naboo is a young company that continues the long-standing family tradition of treating uneven, curved metal, steel, and aluminum surfaces with the technique of photochemical etching. Only a few companies in the world provide such services.

More than 30 years ago, grandfather Cveto was a pioneer in the field of etching different patterns on uneven, curved surfaces of metal tools. He developed a special photochemical process of applying an infinite pattern to steel and aluminum tools with uneven surfaces. At the time, this was a great innovation in our market.

There were few companies in the world, which had the knowledge and technology that enabled this. The prices of such processing were very high.

Our story

 

The beginnings date back to 1986. Grandfather Cveto is a graphics engineer and a researcher at heart. He has a wealth of technical knowledge and is always looking for new, simple solutions to complex problems. Cveto also used graphics skills in other areas. He found the challenge in things that were new and demanding.

 

In the 80s of the last century, he accidentally met the technicians of the company Prevent – a leather factory from Slovenj Gradec. The company made pillows and some other parts of the interior automotive equipment for several European car manufacturers. They needed tool processing for the manufacture of parts for interior automotive equipment. Foreign tool processors were too expensive, so they were looking for solutions on the domestic market. Cveto had the solution they were seeking. He processed some tool pieces for Prevent and sold them the technology. He decided to continue his business path in graphics.

The years passed by, Prevent’s leather factory went bankrupt, and the technology of that time became obsolete. It was no longer possible to obtain components on the market, which were crucial for the developed photochemical process of processing tools.

After a few years, when the economic crisis arose and the economy slowed down, there was less work in the graphics field. Cveto was again determined to develop a new, more reliable technology of photochemical processing of metal tools, based on the pioneering technology. The product of multiannual development is a new technology, or a reliable system called “Chem-etch system™,” based on processes and quality checks at each stage of work. His son and grandson Domen joined pioneer Cveto’s mission. In this way, the protected family secret of processing remains and continues to develop.
