We always have something new...
Our staff here at Scott Machine is dedicated to manufacturing and shipping our full range of products, while providing attentive personal service to our many customers. After several years of upheaval due to the pandemic, we are happy to report that all members of our team have returned to our facility where we are operating at full strength.
We look forward to servicing your order and we invite you to take a brief look at some of our recent new products and innovations.
Sept. 2023 - Improved Engraving Vacuum
This vacuum is designed to run continuously because it doesn't use air from the vacuum hose for cooling; instead, it has a external fan to draw fresh air around the motor. And it operates quietly, differing from typical shop vacs. When it comes to irritating noise, less is more!
This configuration is designed to fit in the knee hole beneath your bench, or put it around the corner for even more noise isolation, taking advantage of the 10' long non-kinking hose with a soft rubber end that can be wiped across surfaces and never mar. And there's a foot switch too.
This non-kinking, non-contracting hose connects directly to our SignGraver 11/16 machine and MetalGraver 12/9 nose cone. The hose is handheld when cleaning inside the AutoGraver 8/6 gantry.
JULY 2023 – SIGNGRAVER® MACHINE REDUCES LONG-TERM COSTS
Save on rotary engraving equipment deployment, training and production, with Scott Machine’s SignGraver® 11/16 engraving machine. Reflecting 50+ years of engraver manufacturing excellence, the new SignGraver machine is straightforward and responsive to the day-to-day needs of modern sign making. Handling everything from valve tags to large safety signs, the SignGraver engraving machine fits conveniently on a common workbench, with room underneath for the handy chip vacuum, wires and engraving materials.
JULY 2023 – NEW SIGNGRAVER MANAGER BOOSTS PRODUCTIVITY
Scott Machine is excited to introduce the new SignGraver® Manager software developed to operate the new SignGraver 11/16.
By separating the design step from the engraving step, the whole process is much easier to learn. One person can design signs, at the office or home. And another machine operator can engrave the signs. Or, start engraving a long job and return to the design console -- the machine runs independently and unattended, then shuts down when done.
MAY 2023 – THE RESIDUE-FREE MAT THAT HOLDS IT FLAT
Get a grip on all of your engraving jobs, with our new GripNGraver™ nano-technology engraving mat. Just press the mat onto the engraver bed, then position whatever you want to engrave on the mat for a firm hold. Once engraving is done, simply lift your item from the mat. The residue-free mat handles thousands of jobs, plastic and metal engraving surfaces alike. When soiled, just remove the mat and rinse it under tap water.
Place GripNGraver on your engraving bed, and produce higher quality signs with sharper, more consistent lettering.
APRIL 2023 – ROTARTY ENGRAVING SOFTWARE MAKES SIGNMAKING MORE CONVENIENT
Scott Machine now offers sign design software for straightforward operation of all our engraving machines. The software includes three separate licenses so you can work at your benchtop, at your desk and even remotely. These multiple licenses promote teamwork and flexibility that make engraving industrial signs and tags a quick, efficient operation. Complete with our instructional videos, this new software simplifies everything from training, to engraving, editing and more!
