Engraving Processes

  1. Surface Engraving
    By means of a rotating carbide cutter, surface material is removed thus exposing the core color.  Engraving width is varied by cutter size and depth of cut.
  2. Sub-Surface Engraving (Reverse Engraving)
    By means of a rotating carbide cutter, sub-surface material is removed thus exposing the transparent surface.  Paint fill is required after engraving.  Engraving width is varied by cutter size and depth of cut.
  3. Diamond Drag
    By means of a non-rotating diamond cutter, the surface is scored.  This process is primarily used on stainless steel.
  4. Diamond Burnishing
    By means of a rotating diamond burnisher, the surface is sanded.  This process is primarily used on anodized aluminum.  Oxidation is required after engraving.
