Engraving

Holdgate  Enterprises has developed two affordable engraving solutions:  The LUVIT system and the ENGRAVE CHEKKER.   

You can retrofit your mill to engrave like the pros at a much lower cost than the "kits" sold by the OEMs.

Why wear out your mill head when a far cheaper ROTOZIP can do the same job?

It works better, quieter, and (with our customized product) can run MULTIPLE ENGRAVING HEADS all at once on one mill.

The LUVIT! STORY

One of our customers named this product!

When asked how he liked it he declared, “I Love IT!”  

So, here it is: “The LUVIT!” Engraver:

This LUVIT presently utilizes the powerful RotoZip 5 amp motor that develops 30,000 RPM’s.   More than ample for engraving.   Other styles are available if compatible.

 

The use of this “Offset” mounting method offers FULL spindle to table clearance and the absolute rigidity of your quill.    Fits 3.375” or 85.725mm Quill.   Use ROTOZIP Model RZ1 or RZ2 – Check other Rotozip models for fit to “Toe” of device.


Why use an “Air Engraver” that needs a 3 HP or more motor that must supply 6 to 9 CFPM to do the same job?   Keep your electric bills to a minimum.


Why “wring out” your air compressor for hours on end to remove the miniscule amount of stock involved in engraving?


Why wait for weeks and costs 100’s of dollars to rebuild when you can just replace the motor at any Home Depot, Lowes or any hardware store.


Why buy an air engraver costing thousands when the LUVIT is available at a fraction of this price?


The robust aluminum frame is designed for MAXIMUM rigidity, can be installed in seconds, has no airlines to deal with (just plug it in!), offers easy accessibility to change cutters and will probably outlast the Pyramids!

Notes:
1)  We can customize the fixture to fit various makes & models of the engraver head (instead of the ROTOZIP if you prefer.)
2)  Neither the ROTORZIP nor any engraving head chuck or bits are included.
3)  Engraving software to direct your mill cuts is not included.

Engrave Chekker

Holdgate  Enterprises has developed a nifty spring-loaded pencil or marker pen holder that will "draw" according to your programmed engraver motions.   That allows you to check your program before cutting any stock, and could therefore save your time, your money, and your ego.

Using your Engrave Chekker:

The unit consists of a spring loaded pencil that will follow and draw the center line of ANY tool path programmed into your machine.  The design will compensate for inherent irregularities in the “Z” axis programming without breaking off the tip of the pencil.

By drawing a small “ + “ at the point you (guess) the program will start and then “zeroing”, you can run your program and check that it will indeed fit on the part and where the engraving will be located on the part.  Any programming errors will also be noticeable on the drawing.

We suggest you tape a piece of paper on the part, place the
“ + “ by using the X and Y axis’s by hand, return the machine to the center (zero) of the “ + “ and run the program.  If you find the engraving is too far off on any of the axis’s, simply move the positioning of the “ + “ accordingly and re-zero. 

Note that it is NOT NECESSARY to turn on the spindle motor to accomplish the above, in fact it is recommended you do not. 

As with ANY tool in your machine, be careful the tool does not contact any of the hold-downs or the machine itself.  Initially, keep your “Z” axis high off the part, run and “air” check to avoid an accidental collision. 

You can make your own pencils when needed by cutting a regular pencil to about 1 ½” long and turn (lathe) the end down to .242 for about 3/16”.  Sharpen as shown in the sketch below and then press the small plastic plunger on..  When disassembling the unit, be careful not to lose the small spring.

             

The idea is to waste a piece of paper rather than your part!




You will find this tool particularly useful if you find it necessary to “re-scale” your engraving.  Normally, the “zero” point will not change, only the size of your engraving.  However, you may THEN find it necessary to change the zero point also. 

Notes:
1)  Engraving software to direct your engraving / mill cuts is not included.
