Designed to fit conveniently on a bench
top, the compact Scott AutoGraver machine measures about 20"
wide x 19" deep x 8" high. The working area is 12"
x 8", although a larger panel can be placed on the surface
if needed. The machine can produce much of the information
and identification signage required by most small to medium-sized
organizations. Informational signs found in museums, in nursing
homes or in college dormitory buildings are just a few examples
of the types of signs that AutoGraver can handle effectively.
MAKING THE CUT
Once you have designed your layout and chosen the sign materials,
the engraving panel is placed on the work surface of the machine.
engraving machine works from a simple premise: a small spinning
tool contacts the surface of the two-layer engraving material,
removing the top layer and thereby exposing the lower layer's
contrasting color. Even a non-technical user can achieve great
results! And the cutting mechanism is completely enclosed for
safety and dust control.
Cutting the material is easy and natural. The machine travels
along the path of the letter shapes to engrave the letters
and graphics as single-line characters, fill characters or
multi-line characters, shown in our helpful animation link.
OTHER USEFUL HINTS
Though the Scott
AutoGraver engraving machine has a few control buttons, the
machine is actually directed by the software. Once the engraving
begins, the operator can step away or begin to design another
When the engraving
is done, simply remove the sign from the machine and sweep the
sign clean with a hand brush. Next, you can place the sign in
one of our optional holders, mount the holder, and your job
is successfully completed. If engraving a name badge, just add
a pin and it's ready to wear with pride.
