A message engraved in stone is an enduring one.
Be it an engraving of a photograph on a slate, a personalized pattern on a stone, a decorative marble plaque or a piece of jewelry worked from natural stone ... Every one of these objects is possible with the help of a Gravograph engraver! But, what is your choice between a laser engraving machine and a rotrary engraver ? Discover our engraving machines!
Laser engraving on stone produces a result similar to sandblasting or acid etching: a surface engraving that gives the impression that the stone has been bleached or abraded. The difference: laser engraving does not require any consumables (such as stencil, acid, ink, etc.) and produces instant results.
Laser engraving does not require the use of cutting tools and is very easy to use.
The laser beam impacts the surface of the mineral material being reduced to a depth of a few microns only. The finer the grain of the stone, the sharper and the clearer the engraved mark! The best results are achieved with darker stones as they provide greater contrast. The most suitable materials are:
Laser technology is suitable for engraving and personalization small and large items. The laser can be used for laser engraving. It is ideal for:
Note: It is not possible to cut stone with a laser machine.
Rotary engraving on stone gives a different result compared to laser engraving. Laser engraving superficially ablated (or discolor) the area of the stone, giving a 'bleached' effect, whilst rotary engraving PHYSICALLY cuts in depth into the material.
The creation and personalization of stone jewelry is also possible with our machining units. Personalize your jewelry pieces in amber, jade etc ... By changing their shape, giving free rein to your imagination.
Note: rotary engraving on stone requires a cooling system in order to prevent overheating and premature tool wear. Air cooling is adequate for small engraving engravings goal deep engraving requires continuous lubrication. Ask us for advice on which accessories to use with your machine.
