Hand Engraving

This is a traditional method used by combining the machine’s precision with craftsmen’s expertise. Usually, the engraver leads the machine along a drawn pattern. Using their eyes, they can control the depth on the surface by removing material to the required depth.

The results are deeper marks with exact depth tailored to suit personal needs. It is most ideal for printing sets, stamp marking, and dies. Hand engraving creates permanent and highly textured finishes, such as 2D and 3D shapes, that can be filled with paint.

At Able Engraving, our experts are fully equipped to apply hand engraving on items of different sizes to produce fantastic product finishes.

Laser Engraving

This method of engraving involves laser that is controlled by a computer to produce accurate designs. The machine used does not come into contact with the material being engraved. The laser is simply shot from the machine to the surface of a material, to create marks.

It is an efficient way to create small complicated markings on surfaces. It is also mainly used to produce identical markings on large batches of products. Metal engravings use the laser engraving to put markings on them.
