PCB Engraver

Denford 3 Axes CNC PCB & Engraving Machine
Denford PCB Engraver

A 3 axis CNC PCB and Engraving Machine with totally-enclosed guarding, suitable for all levels of education and training. The PCB Engraver is supplied with operating software incorporating Gerber and DXF import facilities.

The PCB Engraver is ideal for cutting and engraving a range of resistant materials, including copper board, plastic and acrylic.

Denford’s PCB Engraver is ideal for schools wishing to move away from traditional methods of chemical etching of PCB boards.

The PCB Engraver comes standard with:

  • Powerful operating software that is simple to use and allows multiple designs to be made at once.
  • High speed spindle motor and floating head technology.
  • Basic tools and depth-setting device.
  • Outlet for dust extraction.
  • Sacrificial Table.
  • Installation and Instruction Manuals.
  • USB Connection.

CAD, CAM and/or PCB design software, such as Denford’s QuickCAM 2D Design, will be required in order to make the files required for machining (CNC G-Code or Gerber). N.B. To allow optimum performance of the floating head, dust
extraction is essential.

Denford’s PCB Engraving machine features the latest ‘Floating Head’ technology. The floating head allows manufacture of PCB’s, and engraving of uneven surfaces. The PCB Engraver is also ideal for batch manufacture of PCB boards.

Tool changes are a simple process and allow drilling of larger holes, and the adjustable spindle speed and feedrate make the PCB Engraver ideal for cutting or engraving a range of resistant materials such as plastic, acrylic and copper board. The floating head combined with powerful new software, makes manufacture a quick and easy process.

Quality, Precision, Maintenance Free Routing

Denford supply CNC Routers with precision anti-backlash nuts/leadscrews, as they provide a highly reliable, accurate and almost maintenance-free solution and are perfect for use in a dusty environment. Anti-backlash nuts and lead screws provide a number of clear technical advantages:

  • Zero maintenance
  • No lubrication required
  • Lower particulate generation
  • Longer life with non-catastrophic failure
  • Quieter operation (no re-circulating ball noise)
  • High helix/Fast leads
  • Zero-backlash with very light pre-load/low drag


Denford is committed to providing quality, innovative and reliable technological solutions to support the education and training needs of current and future generations.

Denford products span the complete learning spectrum: from unique multimedia software and easy-to-use CAD/CAM packages for teaching the principles of design and manufacture, through to CNC Milling Machines, CNC Lathes, CNC Routers, Rapid Prototyping and Laser Cutting / Engraving machines enabling the teaching of complex engineering concepts and manufacturing techniques.

As proud founders and sponsors of several unique educational projects including: the “F1 in Schools Technology Challenge”, the “4x4 in Schools Technology Challenge” and the “GT in Schools – The Sports Car Design Challenge”, Denford aims to provide ‘total packages’ to education, incorporating the highest level of technical assistance in terms of hardware, software, training and curriculum support materials.
