Panel Label Engraving Machine Applications

Panel Label Engraving Machine Overview

If you are looking to create wear-resistant and tamper-proof control panels, then we have an ideal panel label engraving machine in our range of Vision Engraving and Routing Systems. Our machines are built tough in the United States and can effortlessly handle high-volume projects.


Explore our selection of panel label engravers to help you create reliable panels for tasks including control panels for boats, elevators, air conditioners, aircraft, industry control panels, and more.

Industrial and Electrical Label Engraving Machine

One of the main reasons why a rotary-based electrical panel engraver is sought after apart from its reliability is that it has the capability of working on nearly any surface. Whether you’re working on wood, plastic, or metal, an electrical label engraving machine can complete the task perfectly – even on a curved surface.


Another of the benefits of a mechanical or rotary panel label engraving machine is that you don’t need to deal with the costly expenses of operating a laser engraver, nor deal with the venting of the harmful fumes that it can create. This allows you to operate the machine in the most optimal position as opposed to adjusting your layout to accommodate a laser engraver.


A rotary panel label engraving machine is perhaps the most versatile of engravers; while control panel making may be the main reason for your purchase, the capabilities of an electrical panel engraver stretch far beyond just one application. All of our Vision engraving systems offer a host of applications including engraving on and for:


– Gifted jewelry

– Metal tags

– Firearm marking

– Signs

– Parts marking

– Tool marking

– Awards and trophy plaques

– ADA braille signs

– Plastic engraving

– Wood engraving

– Nearly any type of metal engraving

If you have limited space or require an engraver that is portable, then the small-format engravers are your ideal solution – perfect for making a single label panel. We offer two sizes in this range, which includes the VE 810 (8″ x 10″) and the Phoenix 1212 (12″ x 12″).


Both models feature a Diamond Drag system and provide a Z-clearance of up to 3.5″ through their Deep Vice system. The VE 810 and Phoenix 1212 come with the newly-improved V-Touch multi-functional touch screen system to help make mobile work easy and accessible. A standard ethernet connection makes using the engraving software simple.

The next of our rotary engravers that are ideal for panel label making are the 1612 Pro and the 1624 Pro. These midsize engravers boast a 16″ x 12″ and 16″ x 24″ T-slot engraving table, respectively. With the ¼” or 11/64″ top-loading spindle, you can engrave as deep as 1.875″, or up to a maximum of 3.5″ with the optioning risers.


All of our systems can come with the optional Automatic Raster Braille Inserter Tool. The size of the engraving table allows for work on multiple panel labels simultaneously, making quick work of larger projects.

Some jobs require high output, and our large-format engravers are perfect for high-volume projects. Processing several label panels at the same time or large panels is what the 2525 Router/Engraver and 2550 Router/Engraver were designed to do.


These powerhouse machines offer sizable engraving tables of 25″ x 25″ and 25″ x 50″ for the 2525 Router/Engraver and 2550 Router/Engraver, respectively. Designed with commercial use in mind, the machines are able to engrave on objects as deep as 10″.


The many automatic features such as the laser pointer to help create pinpoint accuracy make our range of Vision engravers easy and accessible with minimal training.

Not all engraving projects are straightforward; some jobs require you to work on non-flat surfaces which can push the limits of any machine. However, we have a solution which comes in the form of our specialty engravers: Max Engraver and Max Pro Engraver. With engraving speeds of up to 10″ per second, the Max and Max Pro make quick work of any non-flat panel surface.


Self-centering vises and the new Series 5 controllers help to make using the machines easy, even for a beginner. Cylindrical and round objects are comfortably held and maneuvered in the engraver to produce precise and clean work.

Panel Label Engraving Machine Sizes

The selection of engravers for panel making that we supply covers all of the various sizes and workloads that one might require to complete a project. Ranging from portable 8″ x 10″ machines to the powerhouse 25″ x 50″ systems (This system also offers a 3 HP router head, for all router applications).


The table size determines both the size of the panel you need to work on and the overall output that you can expect. Matching the size of the engraver to current and potential future project needs is important.
