Régimbal Group uses diamond engravers for very detail-oriented inscriptions.
Diamond engraving was traditionally performed by hand, which is why it is renowned for its detailed cut. Now it achieves its incision with a diamond-tipped graver attached to a rotary engraver, but with no loss of perfection.
Diamond engraving is renowned for the level of detail it can produce, which is why it is perfect for custom engraving on writing instruments, glass trophies, and recognition medals.
The diamond tip of the graver is produced at specific angles and is then used for specific materials. For instance, a ninety-degree angle tip is good for the surface of a pen, while general engraving would use a one hundred twenty-degree angle tip, and soft metals, like silver and gold, would benefit from a one hundred fifty-degree angle.
The angle degree of the diamond tip produces the difference between a very fine mark and a wider stroke, depending on the material being inscribed. Also, diamond engraving does not cut very deep – it should only cut through the surface of the substrate to expose the background color beneath the surface and create a contrast.
The depth the diamond engraver cuts depends upon the amount of pressure used while engraving and the thickness of the surface being engraved. Further, engraved lines might be traced two or three times to ensure their smoothness or to broaden them out.
Although diamond engraving works well with personalized engraved gifts and recognition awards, it is also used on signage consisting of:
