DE-3 Engraver

Laser Pointer

A laser pointer accurately defines the origin point and displays an engraving path preview on the media— set the engraving position at the touch-of-a-button for accurate personalisation every time.


Precision Engraving

Easily-applied nose cones can be added to the spindle unit to automatically regulate engraving depth on the media surface— avoiding scratches to delicate materials and delivering consistently precise results.


Fast and Easy Production

Powered by a 20,000 rpm DC brushless motor, the DE-3 utilises advanced surface detection and other automatic features to make set-up and engraving a quick and simple process.


DE-3 Port Connections

Ethernet Connection

Machine operation can be managed remotely on the DE-3— offering LAN network connectivity for multiple machine engraving.
Control Panel

Hand-Held Control

Without the need for a computer, you can quickly select machine options such as spindle speed and one-touch machine cleaning. Engraving job data can be sent from your computer and stored in the controller after the PC is disconnected.
