  • Operates on Microsoft Windowsฎ 7, 8, XP, and Vista.
  • Simple to use interface allows virtually any cnc machine operator to create G-code programs.
  • The G-code programs use only G0 and G1 moves to ensure CNC control compatibility.
  • The output CNC G-code is saved as a text file that may be edited with Notepad or other text editors.
  • Draw shapes, (circles, rectangles, etc.) freehand lines, and straight lines.
  • 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).
  • Import and edit logos, 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.
  • Perform Pocketing and Reverse Pocketing (Reverse Engraving), Spiral or Back and Forth Tool paths.
  • Creates Absolute (G90) and Incremental (G91) G-code output (3 Axis - XYZ).
  • Converts 2L single line engraving fonts or any True Type font installed on your computer into standard G-code.
  • The Cycle Time Monitor automatically calculates the amount of time it will take to perform the engraving job.
  • Includes eleven (11) 2L Single Line Stick Fonts specifically written for the 2L engraving programs.

PRO 2 Program - 4 Axis Capabilities

4 Axis Capabilities of the PRO 2 Engraving Software Program:
  • Includes the ability to wrap the engraving geometry around a cylinder and create G-code for 4th axis rotary engraving (for a 4 axis cnc milling machine or a multi axis lathe).
  • Creates G-code for wrapping the engraving geometry around the cylinder (Outer Diameter) of a rotary axis.
  • Creates G-code on the face of a part on a rotary axis lathe with polar interpolation.
  • Use with rotating live spindles or for engraving with a Spring Loaded Engraving Tool.
  • The program automatically displays the cylinder size unrolled so it is easy to create layouts to determine how the engraving will fit on your workpiece.
  • The rotary axis letter is easily modified in the output G-code depending on your cnc machine (any letter can be used - A, B, C, H, U, V, W, etc.).

Multiple Pallet Modular Vacuum Chuck Kits

The Modular Design of the 8" x 12" 2L Vacuum Chucks allows you to connect two, three, four or more Vacuum Chucks together to dynamically create the Vacuum Chuck size and workspace needed for your application.

This eliminates the need to create custom fixtures and allows easy prototyping of workpieces.

Connect two, three, four, or more Vacuum Chucks to quickly create the size and layout Vacuum Chuck required.

* The 2L Modular Vacuum Chuck Workholding System has a U.S. utility patent pending.
  • 8" x 12" Modular Chucks can quickly and easily increase the workholding area.  Use a Single 8" x 12" Modular Vacuum Chuck or combine 2, 3, 4 or more Vacuum Chucks to increase your workholding area as needed.
  • Flexible configuration and set up allows you to prototype parts quickly. Modular Vacuum Chucks eliminate the need to produce custom fixtures and allows for quick set up for prototypes.
  • Accurate Spacing allows for quick and accurate workpiece placement.
  • 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.
  • Vacuum Chuck Top PlateSide and End Workstops can locate the workpiece consistently.
  • Drill through workpieces.
    • Precision 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 are offered without 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.
