In this article, we will explore the features of the VE 810 engraving machine to help you make an informed decision about your investment into a rotary engraving machine.




Main Features of the VE 810 Engraving Machine

The VE 810 engraving machine is a small-format system with the strength of an industrial machine. This workhorse is made by Vision – a leading supplier of American-made rotary engravers. Vision has been in business for over 37 years thanks to the reliable, rugged design of their systems.


One of the first aspects of the VE 810 engraving machine that you’ll notice is how easy it is to use. The machine comes standard with a V-Touch electronic screen with multi-functional capabilities. Since the VE 810 engraving machine is a small-format system, it can be used as a mobile engraver allowing you to move it to where you need it. Its interface system allows you to set up a project with ease, with the ability to control the speed of the engraving on the fly.


Before each engraving project, the red laser pointer allows you to preview the programmed task. The VE 810 engraving machine comes with software by Vision that is easy-to-use and provides you with everything you need to get started on your projects. You can import logos and designs easily, and the VE 810 engraving machine can be used with most popular design programs such as CorelDRAW and CAD/CAM among others.


Additional features include the following:

  •  – Ethernet connection for easy connectivity
  •  – Efficient and quiet operation
  •  – An optional Deep Vise system to allow you to engrave on unusually-shaped objects 3 ¼” deep with self-centering capabilities
  •  – Aluminum T-slot table
  •  – 1″ spindle clearance
  •  – Front panel with full-featured control, including spindle and Z-axis control
  •  – American-made quality
  •  – 8″ x 10″ engraving area
  •  – Minimal waste and no toxic fumes or special venting requirements


The VE 810 is an ideal investment if you require engraving on a fairly frequent basis.




Range of Engravable Materials

One of the reasons why the VE 810 engraver from Vision is so versatile is because of the range of materials that it can comfortably work on. Due to the sturdy design and high-quality spindles, you are able to use your machine to engrave on the following materials:

  •  – Many types of plastic such as lamacoid, PVC, polypropylene, acrylic, and plastic composites
  •  – Glass
  •  – Metals ranging from brass and copper to stainless steel
  •  – Stone
  •  – Wood


With the wide range of materials that the VE 810 is able to work on, it’s easy to find new ways to utilize your engraver.




VE 810 Applications

So, just what type of projects and applications can the rugged and reliable VE 810 do? Since it’s able to work on such a wide range of materials, the list of things that you can engrave and fabricate is nearly endless.


You might need to do frequent lamacoid or metal name plate engraving. You will be able to do several small signs at once with the 8″ x 10″ engraving area provided by the aluminum T-slot table. This includes engraving electrical and valve tags professionally. Marking control panels or anything of a similar nature is a walk in the park for this machine.


Parts marking is another effective use of the machine because the industrial quality machine is able to engrave on tough steel with ease. Trophy and award marking can be done just as easily with the Deep Vise system, allowing you to engrave directly onto unusually-shaped objects.


Jewelry engraving can be done with the VE 810. In fact, its small-format design makes it ideal for engraving special messages or brands on jewelry of all shapes and sizes.


If you’d like to enhance or mark wood, this machine is precise enough to engrave on delicate materials such as wood. Other wood applications of our system include the ability to cut and mill on a wide range of woods such as Redwood, Cherry, Maple, Cedar, Fir, Walnut, and many more.


The machine is also capable of marking firearms with brands, adornments, or to satisfy ATF serialization requirements. The consistent depth that the engraver produces means that there is no need to redo engraving to meet ATF standards.
