If you cannot find what you are looking for give us a call anyway, because chances are that we can either make it or know exactly where to go to get it.

Glossary of Engraving Terms

In our world there are words used that are not always what the customer actually wants. Daily we hear the terms, Phenolic, Traffolyte, Lamicoid, Bakelite and such. So here is a glossary to help you understand the jargon in our engravers world. We have borrowed from Wikipedia for some of this.

Engraving in the application of this website's service is the practice of incising text and designs onto a hard flat surface, by cutting grooves into it with the use of machines. In our case the machines are rotary style. Basically we run small milling machines. Plastics and metals can be used.

Laser engraving, which is different from laser marking,[1] is the practice of using lasers to engrave an object. Laser marking on the other hand just discolors the surface, without cutting into the surface. The technique does not involve the use of inks, nor does it involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface directly. The machines for laser engraving and laser marking are the same, so that the two terms are sometimes confused by those without knowledge or experience in the practice. The lamicoids used must have laser engraving compatibility.

Cable installers usually order cable tags that have two quarter inch holes left and right which get connected with pull ties to wiring bundles. Other electrical and electronics installers prefer a one hole round hanging tag. Tags can have any size hole or slot so that whatever connecting method you are using will fit.
