The Institute of Nanotechnology invites you to come discover DirectIndustry, the online industrial exhibition where you can find products such as engraving machines for your industrial application. DirectIndustry covers all industrial sectors including metrology, electronics, automation, manufacturing and packaging.
A milling machine can either be horizontally or vertically oriented and can come with 3, 4, 5 or more axes of movement. The milling machine can either be manually operated or computer numerical controlled (CNC). CNC milling machines or machining centers are computer controlled machines which can be programmed to perform complex milling operations. The software used in CNC machines is called CAD/CAM and is offered by a variety of different software companies.
Laser engraving machine
A laser engraving machine is used in industry to engrave or mark fabricated parts. Laser engraving is alternative to common printing techniques which use ink or a tool that comes into contact with the part. Be sure to specify what type of material you are looking to engrave, as some materials can be sensitive to lasers. You can also find laser cutting machine that can also mark or engrave parts at the same time.
In thin-film construction, there are several techniques used to apply a thin-film to a surface using a deposition machine. The thin-film layers are within fractions of nanometers up to several micrometers. The two most common types of deposition machines are the CVD (chemical vapor deposition) and the PVD (physical vapor deposition) machine. The machines are used in industry to apply materials such as silicon onto wafers for the fabrication of solar cells.
