Custom Engraving

Much of what we produce is made using our selection of high-quality supplied materials. You can also supply your products or materials for engraving and cutting to our experts. Surfaces engraved must be in one plane per engrave as laser is focused on a plane. Recessed areas can be engraved in most cases in a separate pass to ensure that no details are overlooked.

Items of Cylindrical shape can be rotary engraved with laser.

  • Engraving area is 1245 x 710 mm
  • Rotary engraving up to 250 mm in Diameter
  • Small cylindrical items e.g. 4 mm diameter require a mandrel to hold item during engraving.

 

Your own images or design can be used, or we can design to your needs. All design layout is to be emailed to the client as a .pdf file for approval prior to engraving of product. For Signs and plates as used on Instrument faces, doors, panels etc. Click Here
