PRO 1 ENGRAVING SOFTWARE PROGRAMS

A downloadable Demo is available for the 2L PRO Engraving Software Programs.

Request your Demo HERE!


Pro 1 Engraving Software Program - for 3 Axis CNC Machines

  • 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 1 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.
  • Converts 2L single line engraving fonts or any font installed on your computer into standard G-code.
  • Use guidelines, any drawn objects, or imported image files as reference geometry to precisely locate text or other objects to be engraved.
  • Control text orientation, alignment, spacing, and size on multiple instances of text.

PRO 1 Engraving Software Program

  • 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 eleven (11) 2L Single Line Stick Fonts.
  • 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.
  • We offer several PRO Engraving Software programs with different functionality. Compare all Programs here.
If your cnc control is able to recognize this code, the 2L Engraving Software Program is compatible with your cnc machine.

8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck Kit - Single and Double Pallet 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
