From small industrial labels to prestigious plaques in brass and other metals the engraving field is wide. Classed as precision engineering, engraving is an old art, brought up to date by computer controlled technology.
Three types of engraving are used, machine engraving, chemical etching, and laser engraving. All have a place to play in the manufacturing process. For intricate work chemical etching and for industrial applications, such as labels in laminates or acrylic, machine engraved using tungsten carbide cutters is the norm.
Laser engraving is a more modern approach to manufacture using latest technology giving great accuracy and clarity to the end product.
Products also manufactured from the engraved family are Braille and Tactile signs, for specialist applications in public areas. Please read more about the Equality Act 2010 (formerly known as the Disability Discrimination Act 1995) for clarification.
