What fabrication equipment can an engraving shop benefit from?

This equipment could come in handy in your engraving shop:

  • Beveling Machines – great for beveling the edges on cut tags, signs, or name badges made from plastic and brass. More robust machines can enable faster processing of thicker materials, and some include a built-in chip collector to help you save time on clean-up.
  • Shears – plastic, metal, or combo shears are available for processing sheet stock down to your desired tag or blank size.
  • Corner Shaper Press – add ornamental, rounded, decorative, notched, or step corners to a plate or sign. Additional shape options include corner holes or bag tag slots.
  • Safety Saw – When processing full sheets of material or thicker materials (0.59-inch aluminum, .02-inch brass, 0.27-inch plastic), a safety saw is the compact and safe answer.
  • Cutter Grinder – When your application is demanding, and you don’t have time to send your cutters out for sharpening, a cutter grinder allows you to sharpen your cutter back to factory specifications.
