CAD-Grave Technology

CAD-Grave: A Unique System of Engraving

CAD-Grave is a highly technical engraving system specifically designed by Wisconsin Engraving with the toolmaker in mind. This unique system can handle:

  • Sidewalls
  • Low Clearance Areas
  • Tight Fits
  • Proper Depth Consistency
  • Proper Draft Consistency

Our CAD-Grave process satisfies requirements for the most complex shapes and contours. CAD-Grave is ideal for:

  • Mold Surfaces Not Accessible by a Cutter
  • Engraving that is Too Close to a Vertical Wall
  • Heat-Treated Molds

We take your concept and turn it into a reality. From texture design through production, Wisconsin Engraving is specifically designed to handle large programs. Whether it’s a specialized logo or unique texture pattern, we can produce it all in-house. By utilizing our UniFlex process, we can apply your texture to almost any surface.

We’re all about the details. Our experienced craftsmen use the latest tech to create fully detailed cavity and core engraving. From your approved artwork or design, we transfer your image onto a two or three-dimensional mold surface.

Learn how programs from single cavities to hundreds of cavities can be processed quickly and professionally without needing to use multiple sources.
