How much is the mold engraving machine?

The price of the mold engraving machine is determined according to the configuration of the engraving machine. Choosing a suitable mold engraving machine can be considered from the following aspects:

4 Axis Foam CNC RouterDon’t assume that buying one engraving machine will do all the work. Manufacturers divide engraving machines into various sizes and models to handle different machining tasks. For example, you can buy a stencil engraving machine to engrave a two-color plate, or buy a large engraving machine to engrave a stamp, which will cause huge waste and will not get good results. The engraving machine engineer said that if you buy an advertising-grade engraving machine to make a mold, you may not have this ability at all. Therefore, before purchasing a machine, be sure to fully explain to the salesperson what you want to do, including the size and material of the workpiece to be processed.

Choose the right model

Buying a machine for the first time. Small advertising sign shops mainly producing three-dimensional light panels, crystal characters, two-color panels, chest panels, etc., should purchase advertising-grade signs. Generally speaking, the format of the engraving machine is more than 1200 mm, which is not suitable for fine activities such as engraving two-color plates, but it is suitable for sawing characters and making some large flat cards. The engraving machine of 1200mm and below is a general engraving machine, which can be used for fine processing such as two-color plates and rough sawing. For the processing of cylinders or other special-shaped workpieces, special machine tools can be selected, because some fixtures or rotating coordinate axes need to be added, which requires a high z-axis column and a large space between the worktable and the cutter head. If the stamp workshop is dedicated to engraving stamps, Can be equipped with a small laser engraving machine first.

Understand the machine

The internal structure of the engraving machines produced by various manufacturers is basically the same, but the quality varies greatly. At this point, you need a pair of “fire eyes” to clearly see the quality of the materials used and the quality of the accessories used for the engraving machine. However, most customers do not understand this. Even if they saw the machine on site, they couldn’t tell. This requires you to ask the salesperson about the power of the engraving machine spindle, the power of the motor used, whether the driver is a self-made driver board or a driver with stable quality.

Signing the contract

When you decide to buy, the first thing to do is to sign a contract with the seller. The contract should specify the purchased model, configuration, price, delivery time and delivery method, training method, warranty terms, payment method and other elements. After the contract is signed, a certain deposit (excluding inventory) will be paid according to the contract.

Delivery and training

After the engraving machine arrives, technicians usually come to the door to open the box for inspection. After powering on, carefully inspect the exterior for damage and whether it has been damaged by impact during transportation. If intact, check the machine configuration and accompanying accessories and accompanying instructions as required by the contract. Installation of the machine (including hardware installation, removal of fixtures and placement of the machine) should be performed by a technician. Various cables to connect the power supply. software installation, configuring the computer and installing optional engraving software). After installation, the engraving test should be carried out on the machine according to the test chart provided by the manufacturer. If the engraving trial is completed correctly, delivery acceptance should be completed. The customer’s operators are required to have a technical secondary school degree or above, and have a skilled computer operation foundation. In the training process, we mainly master the selection of different carving speeds for different materials and the use of different tools. This usually requires the accumulation of experience and good mastery, which is beneficial to prolong the service life of the machine and the tool.

Possible problems during use and after-sales service guarantee

Use environment

The engraving machine is a kind of high-tech equipment with mechatronics, which has certain requirements for the working environment.

Avoid using equipment such as strong current and strong magnetic field that seriously affect the signal transmission of the engraving machine. Such as welding machines, launch towers, etc.

Three-core power supply is used to ensure that the engraving machine is well grounded and reduce interference.

The voltage should be stable and avoid large fluctuations. Better to use a voltage regulator.

The machine cannot work for a long time in a strong acid and alkali environment.

Care and Maintenance

The engraving machine is mostly used for processing business, and there is a lot of dust. In the process of use, pay attention to keep the screw, square rail and other parts clean and lubricated, remove dust, and refuel the transmission parts in time; the operator should clean and refuel in time, and it is strictly forbidden to plug and unplug with electricity.

Software usage problems

There are many engraving software available for engraving machines. For example: top carving, casmate pro, CAXA, Mastercam, ArtCAM, smartcam, type3, etc. Choose the correct operating software for your engraving needs.

Solving issues

The rationality of the processing technology

In addition to ensuring the processing accuracy of the engraving machine, reasonable processing technology is also very important. In order to ensure the machining accuracy, please pay attention to the rationality of the machining process.

Tool usage

The machining accuracy is affected by the manufacturing process and the accuracy of the tool itself. Therefore, when machining, please choose a suitable tool for machining


The operator’s proficiency and responsibility also have a great influence on the machining accuracy.

Wear and tear of the machine

The engraving machine will inevitably wear out during use. Over time, wear and tear on the machine reduces the accuracy of the machine
