This week we have been using our machine to engrave granite!  In addition to the V-carved slate house signs and memorials, we are able to engrave granite in a similar style.  Unlike the widely used shot blasted method, our CNC machine is able to cut classic V-shaped letters using a diamond bit. 

Whilst this is a slower method of engraving into granite compared to shot blasting, the letters produced are three times the depth!  They are easy to read both when painted and left ‘as engraved’ due to the shadow effect of the deep cut letters.  Consequently, the letters will be legible for hundreds of years to come!
