Source 2L inc., Hudson, Massachusetts – 2L inc. announced today it has expanded its’ Spring Loaded Engraving Tool line and is now offering, for immediate delivery, a new size 3/8″ diameter “Mini” Spring Loaded Engraving Tool.

Spring Loaded Engraving Tools are now available in 4 sizes to fit virturally any cnc milling machine

Mini Spring Loaded Engraving Toolholders are available in shaft sizes of 1/2″, 3/8″ and 1/4″ and fit in a cnc collet or end mill holder. The Mini Spring Loaded Engraving Tools hold 3/16″ diameter engraving tools and are designed for engraving applications using smaller tabletop cnc mills.

The 3/4″ diameter “Standard” Spring Loaded Engraving Tool can be used in a 3/4″ collet or end mill holder and is designed for high-volume, high-speed production. It has an integrated collet holder that can be alternated to accommodate engraving tools from 1/8″-1/4″ in diameters.

Spring Loaded Engraving Tools simplify engraving and marking on flat, curved and uneven surfaces using a cnc milling machine. Its patented design provides constant pressure to the engraving tool bit as it moves over the surface being engraved, allowing the tool bit to float within the toolholder and compensate for uneven surfaces in the engraved material. In addition, the use of the 2L Spring Loaded Engraving Tool has shown to significantly reduce engraving cycle times up to 84% in high production. Significant savings can also be realized in setup times because the precise location of the workpiece surface is not critical as it is when using a rigid toolholder.

The Spring Loaded Engraving Tool is sold in a kit with the all the necessary items to begin engraving immediately using a cnc machine. Each Spring Loaded Engraving Tool Kit includes a Spring Loaded Engraving Toolholder, one 2L Solid Carbide Engraving tool bit, Free 2L Engraving Software and a light tension spring for general purpose engraving.
