Jewelry Retailer: discover our types of jewelry engraving machines!

From some of the first human creations made by hand to wedding rings, personalization has always been part of jewelry's history. Whether on an impulse or made for a special event, jewelry is associated with a personal feeling. Initially engraved by hand, nowadays computer-controlled (CNC) engraving machine for jewelry allows precise and above all, new engraving possibilities: text, logo, hand signature, fingerprint, photos, and many others.

The in-shop trend is offering engraving at the last moment so the customer can participate in the engraving experience at the store while they wait. Jewelry also finds a growing need online, as jewelers often display their creation on the Web with personalization possibilities. Online engraving is appreciated as the customer can try different fonts, photos, messages and preview their results.

Aesthetics and precision are the keys for jewelry engraving. Any ring, pendant or bracelet can be easily personalized and become unique. You can also engrave inside of rings to personalize them even more. Gravotech technologies can engrave on precious metals such as gold or silver or any alloy and any shape. “New” material used for jewelry like wood or plastics are also easily engravable.

Diamond engraving can mark the jewel without removing any material (no chips, no dust), laser surface marking will vaporize only a tiny quantity. Thus, the personalized jewel does not lose any precious weight or value. Jewel creation is also possible, please refer to our “Jewelry Creation” page

Galvanometric lasers are the fastest technology for jewelry personalization. Our different jewelry laser engraving machines allow a deep or contrasted engraving on your jewelry, thanks to the unique laser sources choice and software parameters we offer. Deep engraving is also possible. The size of the laser beam is less than .05mm so even your smallest composition will be precisely marked, aesthetic and readable.

The laser technology being contactless, the part to be marked does not need to be clamped, the engraving process is greatly simplified. It is also possible to engrave jewelry too fragile to be engraved with a rotary engraver because of the risks of bending the object.

Gravotech has been present in the jewelry market for more than 80 years. Rotary technology allows either engraving deep or to obtain a clean and fine traditional marking. The mechanical precision of about 0.1mm and the vibration-absorbing structure of the machine ensure high engraving quality.

    Jewelry laser cutting with wobbling cutting mode

    Gravotech offers a wide range of solutions for cutting precious metals for the jewelry industry:

    In laser

    • WeLase Fiber 30 Watts will allow you to cut up to 1mm of material.
    • The wobbling cutting method increases the thermal radiation of the laser beam and improves its efficiency. As an example, for a 0.5mm thick brass, this method allows to decrease the time by 5 compared to a classical vector cutting.
    • The pin table allows you to raise the material during cutting and thus avoid deformation and colour degradation due to overheating of the material.

    In mechanical

    • Our cutting table specially designed for the M20 ensures the material is held in place for stable and smooth cutting. Lubrication is also facilitated by the rising edges of the table to avoid dirtying the work area.
    • Improve the quality of your engravings while reducing tool deterioration by using a lubricant. Our Engraving Gel is a non-irritating, odourless lubricant that is easy to use and will not disturb your customers’ visit. Ideal for an in-store environment.
