In this applications page, we will examine what an engraving machine for jewelry is capable of, and which machine would best suit your needs.

Why Use a Rotary Engraving Machine for Jewelry?

Rotary, or mechanical, engraving machines have been the staple for professional engravers for many years. Even with the advent of new technology, rotary technology remains the best system for jewelry engraving due to its ability to work on nearly any material. A jewelry engraving machine is ideally suited to work on materials commonly used in jewelry such as:


– Stainless steel

– Brass

– Crystal

– Silver

– Gold

– Glass


Metal, wood, and plastic are favored materials that a jewelry engraving machine can work on. This means that even if your initial plan is to use your engraver for jewelry, you are not limited to just jewelry.


The shape of the object you wish to engrave is not a concern; a ring engraving machine such as the ones in our range of Vision Engraving and Routing Systems allow you to effortlessly engrave on irregular-shaped objects – even on the inside of a ring.


By choosing a rotary jewelry engraving machine, you cut out the cost of operating laser engravers, and avoid the harmful fumes that are created through the use of a laser on some materials.
