Original Press Release:
Gravograph´s new mechanical engraving machine provides many new functions, including ´point and shoot´ and handling of strips without length limits. IS 900 is designed for flat engraving of identification plates or cutting and engraving of sheets of any material, including aluminium.
IS 900 can engrave at up to 100 mm/s over a large 660 x 460 mm area, ensuring high productivity for cutting or milling as well as medium and large engraving jobs.
IS 900 stands out by its intelligence, its ergonomics and its many innovations.
The engraver´s intelligence is provided by its IQ+ electronics. Developed specifically by Gravograph for its engraving machine range, the new electronics increase working speeds by up to 50%, allowing a maximum speed of 100 mm/s. IQ+ also enables the introduction of new functions such as ´Point n´Shoot´, along with plug-and-play incorporation of any type of controlled accessory, such as additional spindle motors, swarf removal functions or lubrication.
Excellent ergonomics are provided by the novel design, registered by Gravograph, of the IS 900 enabling it to handle strips of unlimited length, with a 660 x 460 mm engraving area. Material feed can also be from the open area, via the back of the machine. The engraver can be placed in the middle of a workshop, or against a wall, or in a corner between two walls, and all functions remain available whatever its layout.
IS 900 is 100% compatible with Gravograph´s Braille Dispenser Kit, making it easy for the customer to engrave and place metal beads in the plates to generate Braille characters. Large plates can be clamped with just one hand, raising productivity. All clamps are locked in a single operation by one handle. Less than 10 s is needed to install and clamp the plates.
Its many innovations distinguish the IS 900 from other models on the market. First, the ´Terrain follower´ enables the IS 900 machine to engrave accurately even on a non-flat surface, following the shape and height of the sheet with an optical sensor. Second, the ´Point n´Shoot´ function uses a laser pointer for visual positioning of the engraving on the item and simulating the engraving work before executing the
