Types of Engraving
The art of hand engraving can be described as the process in which a hardened, shaped, and sharpened piece of steel, called a 'Graver', is pushed through the metal's surface. As the name suggests, hand engraving entails the use of one’s hands and a graver to create detailed inscriptions onto a piece of jewelry. Whereas powered techniques create engravings that are “clean” and uniform, hand engraving creates a dynamic engraving where every section of the inscription differs in carve depth, length, and angle.
Computerized Diamond Tip Engraving
Computerized diamond tip or diamond drag engraving produces a clean precise light engraving on a chosen surface. A diamond tip controlled by a computer will scratch a surface to achieve the engraving. This type of engraving can be used on multiple surfaces including metal, glass, and plastic. The design is pre-programmed into a computer that controls the machine, making the engraving as precise as possible. Rotary machine engraving is more affordable than hand-engraving because it takes comparatively less time.
