Diamond Drag / CNC / Rotary Engraving

Rotary engraving is the process of using a spinning cutter in a motorized spindle to cut into materials at a predetermined depth to create engraved grooves that form characters and graphics.
Diamond drag engraving is similar to rotary engraving in that we can use the same machine but we use a diamond-tipped, non-rotating cutter to cut into the material. This method is primarily used for engraving metal.
With diamond drag engraving, we have the ability to mark/engrave/personalize metal items. Using diamond drag engraving we can personalize just about any metal item, including off-the-shelf items. A partial list of rotary engravable items would include Medic Alert bracelets, metal pens, die struck medals, Christmas ornaments, bridal cake knives, brass or aluminum plates, etc. If it’s uncoated metal, you can engrave it. If it’s coated, you can engrave it. Diamond drag engraving will work on precious metals, semi-precious metals, stainless steel, brass, and pewter.

Sublimation

Dye Sublimation is the method of applying an image to substrates such as slate, metal, ceramics and polyester cloth, using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, heat and pressure.

Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. (Just like dry ice.) The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic, fibreboard, metals, etc. require a special polyester coating to accept the sublimation inks. Fabrics that are 100% polyester are ready to accept sublimation ink.
