Engraving Processes

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Diamond Drag
  • By means of a non-rotating diamond cutter, the surface is scored. This process is primarily used on stainless steel.

  • 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.
