Engraving | Sic Marking

Historically, engraving was defined as a material removal operation from the surface by mechanical action by a tool, thus producing shavings. The term “marking” was more commonly used for printing action (like inkjet, for example) but is now accepted for metal and plastic deformation in many industrial sectors. With the increasing performance of technologies like scribing, dot-peening, and laser systems, marking systems have today a huge advantage over engravers: quicker marking with no shavings produced, for a comparable result in terms of readibility.
