  • 10,000 Maximum RPM. 
  • 1,000 - 10,000 RPM speed range.
  • The 3/4" Spring Loaded Engraving Tool has a custom integrated Collet which holds the Tool Bits in the Toolholder.

  • Additional Collets of 1/8", 1/4", 4 mm and 6 mm are available separately.
  • Engrave using your existing CNC Machine.
    No need for dedicated engraving machines or marking systems.  Use the CNC milling equipment you already have for marking and engraving parts. Engrave using your CNC milling machine without removing the part from the machining set up or vise.

  • Engraves uneven, curved and flat surfaces.
    Spring loaded design compensates for uneven or curved material surfaces and provides constant pressure to the engraving toolbit as it moves over the surface being engraved.  Slight surface variations from part to part no longer create illegible engraving when engraving with the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool. The toolbit floats back and forth within the toolholder to move over inconsistencies in the part.  See engraving examples.

    Spring Loaded Engraving Tool Marking System for CNC Milling Machines
  • Compensates for varying part height and surfaces.
    Provides .40" of travel to the Tool Bit and compensates for variations in the material surface. It is not critical that the part being engraved is perfectly flat on the machine table.

  • Improves Tool Bit life.
    Spring loaded design allows the tool bit to move over the contour of the part minimizing possible breakage or wear when engraving inconsistent materials and workpieces. A wide range of engraving tools can be used in the Spring Loaded Engraving Tools. 2L's Engraving Tool Bits are designed and tested for maximum performance of the Spring Loaded Engraving Tools. We test and manufacture bits to engrave many materials, such as Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Tool Steel, Acrylic, and more. View all 2L Engraving Tools.

  • Use for rotating or drag/scratch engraving.
    The Spring Loaded Engraving Tool can be rotated to use rotating cutting Engraving Tools or held stationary for scratch engraving with Diamond Engraving Tools for hard materials such as glass engraving, stone engraving, tile engraving, etc.

  • Reduce engraving cycle times up to 84%.
    Rapid Tool (G0) into the part and use the suggested feed rates (instead of slow feed).  The engraving cycle times can be dramatically reduced by up to 84%.  View cycle time comparisons and Spring Loaded Engraving Tool Speeds and Feeds.

  • Significantly reduce set up times.
    In production applications set up times can be reduced dramatically. As the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool compensates for height variations from part to part, there is no need to relocate each part when loaded into the CNC machine.

  • Engrave soft, hard, and difficult to mark materials.
    Engrave or mark most materials of various hardness from Plastic to Hardened Steel.  Use different tension springs to vary the force against the toolbit.  Easy Spring changes provide deeper or lighter engraving marks.

  • Quick Tool Bit changes.
    There is no need to remove the Spring Loaded Engraving Tool from the machine to change toolbits.  The Mini Spring Loaded Engraving Tool holds 3/16" Diameter Engraving Tools.

  • Engrave test, numbers, symbols, logos, lines and more.
    Typical engraving of text height of 10 pts (.085") and larger is possible using a wide variety of standard engraving tool styles and sizes.
  • Very small engraving possible - 0.030" letter height.
    Engrave very fine lines and letters as small as .030" high using the Carbide Point Engraving Tool and a Heavy Spring with a Spring Loaded Engraving Tool (example below).
