Engraving is the practice of incising a design on to a hard, usually flat surface, by cutting grooves into it.
Features and Applications
Traditionally it was a hand process using small cutting tools called Burin and was how copper printing plates used to be made. Hand engraving is still used today by artist/craftsmen but most is now done using a CNC engraving machine.
CNC Engravers can be used as a mini-router or milling machine for small scale work in acrylic, close-grained timbers, manufactured boards, or softer metals. Models are available specifically designed for engraving electronic circuits using copper-clad board and some have a limited 3D capability.
- Fully enclosed machines with interlocks are advised for school use.
- Only Lasers with the laser beam totally enclosed should be used in schools and an interlock provided to prevent operation unless the laser is enclosed - check Laser Safety with supplier.
- Always isolate any CNC machine before adjusting tools or work piece and ensure hands are well clear of the table before switching on - when the program runs : the cutter will move!
