Using the very best in engraving technology, our precision engraving machines create bespoke engraved signs for a wide range of applications. The quality and durability of this product is what has made this type of signage popular with architects for many years and continues to do so. Not only are engraved signs aesthetically pleasing, they are also manufactured to stand the test of time in both exterior and interior applications.
With the capacity for both rotary engraving and co2 laser engraving, we use each technique to its optimum advantage. Our skilled craftsmen perform both techniques onto materials such as satin aluminium, polished brass, brushed stainless steel, acrylics and engraving laminates to create high-quality signs, labels, name-plates and plaques.
Rotary engraving is the traditional method of engraving where a motorized spindle is controlled by an on-board control panel. A rotating tool/cutter moves from X to Y to remove the surface material to a set depth and follows a pre-set cutting path from the advanced computer software. The speed rate of the tool is the cutting speed and the lateral movement is the feed rate. Each has a profound effect on the quality of the finish.
CO2 Laser Engraving
Laser engraving is ideal for both engraving and cutting and allows for much finer detail than rotary engraving or milling. Depending on the material used, the laser will either vaporise the surface layer or change the colour of the surface, creating a contrast. By controlling the output of the laser, its pulse rate and the speed of the movement over the surface, the engraving or cutting can be precisely controlled for each specific material.
