There are many engraving processes, we
choose the right one for your project.
Diamond Drag - An industrial
diamond is cut to a tip that is dragged through the metal plowing the metal to each side
of the cut - very similar to a farmer plowing a field. We use this process to engrave many
items in our store like Brass Clocks, key rings and metal tankards. We use Diamond Gravers
most of the time for gift merchandise, such as key tags, letter openers, money clips,
Burnishing - On items that have a large flat
area of coated materials, we can burnish using carbide or diamond burnishers. Many times
the diamond drag engraving is hard to see because of the thinness of the diamond tip. With
burnishing a carbide or diamond tip is rotated to make a wider line on the engraving
material. Most award plaques have a brass plate that is lacquer coated or screen printed
with ink coating. When burnishing the coating is removed exposing the gold colored brass
underneath. Burnishing is used to engraved coated Waterman and Cross pens which we carry.
Laser Lathe - With this process we use a
laser to scan a document - like a Diploma or anything that has been typeset and it is
engraved into brass sheets that are wrapped around a rotating metal drum. The results are
the document reproduced on to the brass at about 250 dpi. We use this process to engrave
plates to be attached to gift times and award plaques. Wedding Invitations
reproduced are popular.
Etching - We can take Corporate logos, line
art and typesetting and make mask for etching onto glassware and acrylics (Gifts and
Awards). We can do from the inexpensive Glass Beer Mug to Jaffa Crystal with stunning
Laser Engraving - We can laser directly into
wood plaques and acrylic Awards. Many of the awards you see presented on TV are of this
type. When you want the best and state of the art - laser engraving is where it is at and
we can supply this service from 1 piece to hundreds.
