With the introduction of the EGX-20 engraving machine by Roland, now anyone can have access to a super easy to operate portable engraving machine. No matter how new you are to the world of engraving (or not!), Roland has ensured that the EGX-20 engraver is as user friendly as possible.
Some of the many engraving jobs that the Roland EGX-20 can accommodate includes award plaques, personalized items, office directories, small-format directional signage, product serial numbers, and more. Yet despite its tremendous power, this engraver is the perfect addition to your desktop in terms of size. The joystick and dial controls found on the EGX-20 make it extremely intuitive. Whether you are a beginner, a novice, or an experienced professional, you will be able to operate it with ease and enjoyment. The EGX-20 Portable Engraving Machine also comes with a comprehensive suite of engraving software for True Type fonts, ADA signs, and 3D reliefs.

Active Surface Tracking System by Roland
One of the most outstanding features of the EGX-20 is AST or the Automatic Surface Tracking System. With AST, the height of the material being engraved is automatically tracked for the purpose of ensuring that the engraving process is conducted at a steady depth, regardless of whether the surface is bowed or non-uniform. While other similar systems require an extensive learning curve, Roland’s Active Surface Tracking System makes it possible to set the origin point and cutting depth with almost zero effort. Now producing results that are consistent in beauty and quality can become an everyday occurrence. With the EGX-20 desktop engraver, you waste zero time and zero materials.
Because the EGX-20 Portable Engraving Machine boasts a strong 15,000-rpm spindle motor, it has the power and capability to be able to handle engraving on a vast array of popular materials. These materials include but are not limited to acrylics, wood, PVS, polycarbonate and wood. The optional diamond scraper and burnishing attachment can be used for scribing light metals like brass and aluminium for awards. On the other hand, the included adhesive sheet allows you to easily secure the material to the worktable. Once the material that is going to be engraved has been selected, the EGX-20 engraver is able to determine the optimum cutting speed and tool path, guaranteeing results that are nothing short of flawless.
Included Engraving Software
A comprehensive suite of software is part and parcel with the EGX-20 Engraving Machine, making the investment truly worth it: Dr. Engrave to engrave nameplates, 3D Engrave to produce reliefs, and Virtual MODELA to simulate finished work.
One of the features of Dr. Engrave is that converting Windows TrueType fonts into single-line fonts for scribing is now easy. This eliminates the need for you to purchase new engraving fonts for the EGX-20 desktop engraver. Importing database files, whether on Notepad or MS Excel and automatically laying them out to engrave nameplates in high quantities can also be carried out with the use of Dr. Engrave. Outlining borders with the “V” cut function allows you to easily outline borders to easily separate individual plates. Lastly, Dr. Engrave is excellent at handling enlargement and reduction and scanned images right from your scanner and computer for engraving.
In addition to Dr. Engrave, 3D Engrave is also included with the EGX-20 machine. 3D Engrave can be used for adding thickness to bitmap images for making reliefs. And not only that, you can also use 3D Engrave for specifying a variety of depths for engraving for assorted objects in a single design for additional creativity.
Lastly, Virtual Modela can be used for previewing finished reliefs before you actually produce them. This assures you that the end result is perfect and customized to your liking in every way. Some of the things that you can add for representing the finished product are lighting effects, bitmap overlays, and material colour. Finally, Virtual Modela also provides you with an accurate estimate of engraving time for your convenience.
