Gravotech Know How

Gravotech originates from Gravograph who created the first small Pantograph in 1938 and Technifor who invented permanent marking with Dot Peen technology in 1984 joining forces together with Vision Numeric, software publisher of 3D CAD-CAM software. BA

This merge gives us a unique know-how to put to your service.  

Since then, we carried on innovating, with

  • Technifor scribing technology in 1999,  
  • 2D and font reading
  • Industry 4.0 tools with our international Group Support Centre (GSC) in 2017.  

All these competencies are today at your service to provide a complete solution that fits best to your needs.
