AutoGraver 20 - Desktop Engraving Amplified & Simplified

Designed for maximum ID panel output, the Scott AutoGraver-20® delivers a coordinated three-pronged engraving solution:
(1) AutoGraver-20® Rotary Engraver: This engraving powerhouse changes the corner of your workbench into a productive ID plate factory.
(2) Coordinated Custom Shaped and Sized Blanks: We'll make the blanks; you simply letter them. Our tough,
(3) Synchronized Easy-to-Learn Software: Centered around your work, this intuitive software helps minimize the time between preparing and actually engraving your plate. Talk about a triple threat performer!

(2) Coordinated blanks - ready to engrave
Instead of blank stares, our custom-size blanks evoke smiles for their simplicity and productivity. A dozen popular "safety" colors in 1/16"-thick material keep it simple, while the ready-to-engrave blanks also help you stay productive. Clients love that we manufacture our own tough, weather-resistant engraving plastics in sheets, half-sheets and even 6" x 8", coordinated to the engraver's bed, ready for custom lettering including your logo.
Providing blanks is our job – which makes your job of engraving them more efficient. Scott Machine is a one-stop shop for all of your signage supplies!
And how’s this for balancing your budget?
Various blank legend plates: about $1.00
(3) Integrated software - Templates for any job, any blank
Advanced software that handles every job makes this a coordinated effort from start to finish. Our free template library matches the common sizes of engravable blanks and properly aligns them and their layouts with the machine bed. This ensures professional labels that identify your valves and equipment panels with clear, legible lettering every time.

Detailed photographs and broader explanations of the AutoGraver-20® appear below, to help you even further.
No clamps, screws or vises -- press and go!
Nothing to get “uptight” about here…just simply press your blank plastic panel into the lower left of the worktable frame. The gray tack-mat surface instantly grips and never slips. No need to turn another clamp or vise, no need to waste another second.
There's a convenient vacuum shroud around the cutter that draws away plastic chips while engraving. Just connect the hose to your shop vacuum system or to our optional vacuum for a clean sweep between jobs.
Clearly, the Scott AutoGraver-20® can save you a few seconds for each engraved panel, several panels every day, five days every week. And those seconds soon become hours!
Clean, quiet chip removal...a real time-saver
The AutoGraver-20® includes a vacuum shroud that surrounds the cutter to draw away plastic chips created while engraving. Just connect the hose to the optional vacuum-blower shown on the left side of this photo.
From time to time, merely empty the chips from the white collection bucket and replace the paper filter.
Avoid noisy shop vacs; tuck this quiet unit under your bench for greater noise suppression. The wood base further absorbs the sound and helps negate vibration. Simply toggle the blower on and off with the foot switch.

Everything You Need Is in the Box
Ready to go, right out of the box, AutoGraver-20® needs no options for engraving. The machine's specs appear at the bottom of the page. Here are the details of the installed engraving accessories:
Engraving tools: 1/8" collet with set screw
▫ Ultra-sharp 1/8" shank, 1/32" tip, long-life carbide cutter
▫ Collet wrenches and set screw wrench
Worksurface: Pocketed frame for quick alignment of blank at (0,0) corner coordinates
▫ Tack-mat with approximately 30 sheets
▫ Standoff hex spacers & button head screws
Chip removal: Integrated vacuum shroud and short hose
Refreshable Tack-Mat Keeps On Sticking
All it takes is a little finger-pressure to set the Scott blank plastic plate into place on your work surface, for a reliable grip while engraving. No screws or clamps required.
While engraving, the vacuum draws away most of the chips. So when you’re finished, just lift the engraved part off the mat. Over time, as the mat loses its adhesive properties due to an accumulation of fine plastic engraving dust, you simply raise the corner and peel away the top sheet to expose a fresh, high-tack surface.
This novel refreshable tack-mat is yet one more way we minimize your seconds spent between engraving jobs!

The Beauty Is in the Details
Ready to do fine, detailed lettering? Use our quality scribe, a spring-loaded diamond tipped tool. Unlike an engraver cutter, it doesn't rotate. Instead, it rides on the surface and creates a deep scratch, or "scribe line", in soft metals like aluminum serial number plates and brass valve tags.
Let us prepare aluminum serial plates with your logo and custom layouts. You use the versatile scribe to create fine, single-line letters directly on the aluminum, or scribe through the printed black zones for high-contrast lettering. Interested?
The scribe tool has a 1/4" diameter shaft and requires a mating 1/4" collet. These two items are offered separately from the AutoGraver package.
