English translation:texturing inside the mold
Explanation:
A "texture" is often referred to as a "grain." This refers to applying a texture inside the mold, so that the parts will have a certain finish. I worked in a manufacturing plant that made plastic and rubber parts for 3 years, and we often had such textures in molds.
