Use your laser at high speed to create an image or text
Run the plate through our chemical wash system
Easily remove remaining paint
Optional color fill to make it stand out
Fast Processing Time
One of the key advantages is that the entire plate width is processed at the same time as it is fed through the etching unit. The entire area is engraved at the same time regardless of what kind of image you are engraving. You should be able to engrave .01" deep at a rate around 1" per minute. Engraving depth is controlled by adjusting the machine feed speed.
At a price of only $14,500 this can quickly pay for itself.
So Simple to Use
Just turn the system on and adjust the speed control based on how deep you want to engrave.
Easy to Maintain
The unit is a simple roller conveyor that pulls the plates through and sprays the part with solvent as it goes through.
The engraving unit uses a chemical called Ferric Chloride (40% strength) Ferric Chloride is very inexpensive, widely available and by far the least hazardous chemical used in metal etching. It does not produce dangerous fumes, it is odorless, it is not absorbed through the skin and does not cause burns. $150 worth of this solution may last you an entire year.
