  • Engraving on User Panel With 2.5mm Edge?

    Good Day,


    I have a panel (steel) which has a 2.5mm lip on the top and bottom running the length of the panel. Is it possible to do any engraving on this panel, or does the lip keep the tools from correctly reaching the panels? (as in: do I really need to use a flat panel?)


    Many thanks!

    Hello Brian,


    Look at this thread. Panels with lips are no problem at all. We can mill on almost any part as long as it can be held on our machines.


    However, steel is a problem. The spindles of our machines can only handle non-ferrous material like aluminum, brass, copper, etc.


    Best regards,

    Thanks for the information, Diane. I appreciate it. I'll get with my client and suggest aluminum as a replacement.


    Have a great day!
