PRO 1 Engraving Software Program
3 Axis CAD/CAM Engraving Software for CNC Milling Machines

Engrave Text, Logos, Serialize Numbers, Pocket, Import Images, DXF and more

The 2L PRO 1 Engraving Software Program creates detailed engraving layouts and drawings and produces standard G-code nc files quickly and simply for 3 Axis Engraving.

The 2L PRO Engraving Software Programs create generic G-code programs which use only G0 and G1 moves to ensure CNC control compatibility.  It has a simple to use interface that allows virtually any cnc machine operator to create G-code programs.

Engrave and edit text, lines, numbers, characters, incrementing serial numbers, logos, JPEG, GIF, and DXF Files.  Monitor engraving cycle times, perform pocketing, reverse pocketing, mirror text, and engrave text on a radius or incline, and much more with the 2L PRO 1 Engraving Software Program.

The program also performs 3D Surface Engraving to engrave at a constant depth on an Imported 3D surface. Place and modify complex geometry onto a 3D surface in just a few steps.

PRO 1 3 Axis Engraving Software Program
 

  • Simple to use interface allows virtually any cnc machine operator to create G-code programs.
  • Functions as a complete drawing program. Draw shapes, (circles, rectangles, etc.) freehand lines, and straight lines. There is no need for an external drawing program.
  • Include multiple font styles and sizes, imported image files (company logos, drawings), drawn items (shapes - circles, rectangles, freehand and straight lines, etc.), and incremental serial numbers in one output cnc G-code program (.nc file).
  • Engrave at a Constant Depth on an Imported 3D Surface. Project the engraving onto a surface of an imported 3D model. This creates an engraving that maintains a constant depth in relation to a 3D model. Place and modify complex geometry onto a 3D surface in just a few steps.

3D Surface Engraving with PRO Engraving Software Program

  • Image trace feature allows importing and editing any photo images (jpg, bmp, gif formats).
  • Converts image into lines and points which can be engraved. Also imports dxf files.
  • Control text orientation, alignment, spacing, and size on multiple instances of text.

Engrave Serial Numbers, Text, Images, with PRO Engraving Programs

  • The Cycle Time Monitor automatically calculates the amount of time it will take to perform the engraving job. The effect of changing font styles, sizes, and feedrates can be seen instantly to help reduce cycle times.
  • The output CNC G-code is saved as a text file that may be edited with Notepad or other text editors.
  • Creates Absolute (G90) and Incremental (G91) G-code output (3 Axis - XYZ). The G-code programs use only G0 and G1 moves to ensure CNC control compatibility.
  • Perform Pocketing and Reverse Pocketing (Reverse Engraving), Spiral or Back and Forth Toolpaths.
  • Includes 2L Single Line Stick Fonts.
  • Import JPG, BMP, and GIF bitmap images (photos) and convert them into lines (vectors) which can be engraved. The Engraving Software automatically places a cutting tool path on the lines.
  • Edit the imported photo image to improve the finished look of the engraving.
  • Place text, incrementing serial numbers, drawn objects such as straight lines, freehand lines, circles, rectangles, and multiple imported images all in one layout and create one G-code nc program.
  • 2L PRO Programs operate on Microsoft Windows® 7, 8, 10, XP, and Vista.
  • Recommended minimum RAM 512 MB.
  • Approximate program file size is 287 MB.
  • 2L PRO Engraving Software Programs are installed on your PC. Installation and registration requires Internet access, as well as email and/or print capability on the installation PC.

8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits

Quickly Create Different Size & Layout Vacuum Chuck Workspaces Using the Modular 8" x 12" Vacuum Chucks

8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks are a Versatile Vacuum Chuck System.
Use for Vacuum Workholding, Fixturing and Clamping.

Two Modular Vacuum Chucks shown with Vacuum Created by Venturi Vacuum hooked up to Air Compressor

Shown Above: Two 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chucks connected to create a vacuum chuck workspace size of 8" wide x 24" long.  The vacuum is created using one Air Venturi Vacuum Pump which is connected to an air compressor.

A Gasket Sheet is in use with the vacuum chuck appearing on the left, which assists with the vacuum seal.  A Gasket Cord is used with the Vacuum Chuck on the right to seal the vacuum chuck air to hold down the workpieces while the vacuum chuck is in use.

Adjustable Work Stops and Edge Clamps assist to consistently locate the workpieces.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use One 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck or Connect 2, 3, 4 or More Vacuum Chucks to Quickly Create the Size and Layout Vacuum Workholding Space Required.

  • Four preconfigured Kits are available with one, two, three or four Modular Vacuum Chucks.
  • Use a Single 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck, or connect two, three, four, or more Vacuum Chucks and create a custom size and layout vacuum workspace quickly and easily.
  • Numbered locations on the face of each Vacuum Chuck allow for quick and repeatable set up and workpiece placement.
  • Only one Vacuum Pump is required when connecting multiple Vacuum Chucks together.  Use an Air Venturi Vacuum Pump, or Portable Electric Vacuum Pump to provide the Vacuum.
  • Quick set up and use eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.
  • Quickly seal off the vacuum holding area by using Gasket Cord or Gasket Sheet.
  • Replaceable Top Plates with various configurations are used to drill through workpieces while protecting the surface of the Vacuum Chucks.
  • Use as a pallet for fixturing without the vacuum.  Low profile Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps can hold a wide range of height and size workpieces and can eliminate the need for custom fixtures.

  • Each 8" x 12" Vacuum Chuck has 77 threaded 1/4”- 20 holes with accurate 1.0” spacing for clamps.
  • 29 Vacuum Holes per Vacuum Chuck Pallet. One horizontal row of 11 vacuum holes and 3 vertical rows with an additional 6 vacuum holes each. The vacuum holes can be used for vacuum, clamping, or locating the workpiece.
  • The Vacuum Chuck layout allows for repeatable set up for high production. Repeatable workpiece position between Vacuum Chuck Pallets for high production; load one Vacuum Chuck off-line while another is being machined.
  • Vise Stop-Pin locates Pallet in the milling vise.
  • Threaded Hole locations are labeled/numbered to allow documenting setups.
  • Quick Vacuum Gasket Cord placement allows easy workpiece size changes.
  • Side and End Workstops can locate the workpiece consistently.
  • Drill through workpieces.
    • Modular Vacuum Chuck Top PlatePrecision ground Replaceable Aluminum Top Plates are available to cover the surface of the Vacuum Chuck. The Replaceable Top Plates allow drilling through or machining around the outside of workpieces without damaging the vacuum chuck.
    • The low slip Vacuum Gasket Sheet allows drill through the workpieces without damage to the Vacuum Chuck and provides vacuum seal.
  • The Modular Vacuum Chuck can also be used without the vacuum as a fixturing Pallet System by using low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops.  The low profile Adjustable Edge Clamps and Workstops reduce set up time and eliminate the need for custom fixtures.
  • The Vacuum Chuck fits in a standard milling vise. Hold the Vacuum Chuck in a standard milling vise or attach a Vise Block for vise openings as small as 5”.
  • Hold parts on a magnetic chuck by use of the Vise Block. The Steel Vise Block allows holding Aluminum, Plastic, and thin workpieces on a magnetic chuck for surface grinders. 
  • These Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits do not include a Vacuum Pump such as an Electric Vacuum Pump, or Air Venturi Vacuum Generator.  A Vacuum source is needed to create the vacuum for a Vacuum Chuck.
