Our services encompass design consultation, material selection, and production, tailored to fulfill our clients' unique requirements. Whether for industrial labeling, branding, or decorative purposes, our metal engraving guarantees precision, longevity, and visual appeal across all nameplate products.

Process Overview:


Initiated with crafting the design for the metal nameplate, incorporating text, logos, and graphics. Utilizing design software or traditional drafting methods to achieve desired aesthetics.

Material Selection

Following finalization of the design, selecting the suitable metal material for the nameplate based on considerations such as durability, aesthetics, and intended application. Options may include stainless steel, aluminum, or brass.

Chemical Etching

The engraving process commences with chemical etching, wherein the design is etched onto the metal surface. This involves applying a protective mask, exposing only the areas to be etched. Subsequent immersion in an etching solution selectively removes metal, forming the desired design.

Laser Cutting

Post-chemical etching, laser Cutting is employed to refine details and enhance the design further. A high-powered laser beam meticulously removes material, facilitating precise customization and intricate patterns.

Color Filling

Upon completion of engraving, recessed areas of the metal nameplate are filled with colored enamel paint, augmenting contrast and visibility.

Additionally, applying epoxy resin over the entire surface ensures protection and durability, preserving vibrant colors and intact engraving over time.
