Essentially engraving involves removing a layer of surface material away to permanently mark or indent numbers, text or images, typically on a metal, plastic or glass surface. It is the most durable and legible way of marking information and a whole host of materials can be used to exact customer specifications.

Brunel Engraving employs a combination of traditional and the most up to date engraving technologies available, from long established hand engraving, screen printing and the use of manual pantographs to modern CNC engraving, the use of milling and routing machines, CNC laser engravers, sublimation ink printing, chemical etching and digital print.



We can engrave materials which are suitable for high impact, wet or highly corrosive environments and we can create precise cut outs or profile shapes in most sizes, thickness and finishes with colour filling engraved as an option.  Bespoke engraving solutions are our speciality

Plastics that are typically engraved are phenolic and impact acrylic laminates of different coloured layers, so that engraving the top layer away reveals a different coloured layer beneath, allowing for highly readable markings. These laminates can be rigid or flexible and suitable for indoor only or outdoor use.
