Characteristics of Engraver

January 21, 2019 by Glain max  


An engraver is a tool that ends in the tip and that is used to generate dies, holes on a surface. According to their characteristics and materials, machine engraving can be used to perform different kinds of jobs.
Using an engraver is very simple: you only have to press its tip on the surface you want to pierce. Caution must be taken, of course, with the tip of the instrument as it can cause injuries.
Within the school environment, it is also very common to use certain punches. Specifically, they are used in the subjects of plastic and drawing to undertake various jobs and varied techniques.
Various uses:
There is Tool embossing Die that is used for engraving medals, coins, and other objects. There are also punches that jewelers use to decorate their creations. In some cases, the engravers have tips that can be changed according to the need for a specific use. In this way, the same punch can be used to drill metals, leather, wood, etc.
It should be noted that there are punches that are used in conjunction with a hammer. In these cases, the person takes the punch with one hand and rests its tip on the surface it intends to mark while with the other hand, it hits with a hammer on the other end of the punch. This allows piercing very hard surfaces which would be impossible to mark with a punch by hand.
The ideal is to have a work table to use a punch. In this way we will have greater security to manipulate the tool, reducing the risk of injury and the possibility of damaging another surface without intention. If we use the punch on the table of the dining room or directly supporting the surface to be recorded on the legs, however, we can suffer various disadvantages.
Different types of engraving:
There are different types of engraving comes that includes:
•    Etching
•    Inside ring engraving
•    Laser engraving
•    Nameplate engraving
•    Plastic engraving
•    Memorial plate engraving
•    Acrylic engraving
•    And many others...
Among all these types, laser engraving is widely used. Its procedure is mainly used to craft images on various materials that can be seen. To achieve this, a laser beam generates a high temperature capable of vaporizing the object and creating holes that shape the final figure.
Mostly this type of engraving is used on all part of the surfaces of metal, wood, glass, plastic, and leather. It is more effective than any traditional engraving. In addition, it reduces the risk of damaging or deforming the processed material.
