|Professional milling solutions at a fair price!|
Our programs have a large number of specially developed engraving fonts. As opposed to outline fonts (TrueType, Type1, etc.) obtainable in large quantities, engraving fonts are specially developed for recessed gravure. They are either single line for the economic and rapid gravure or multi-lined (2, 3, 4 track etc.). Multi-line fonts are required for both large versal heights (large symbol height) and also for better representation of fonts with variable stroke width.
The production of engraving fonts is very costly in time and these can be used only for a limited circle of clients. Nevertheless we offer our font package at an extremely favourable price. The fonts developed for our milling and engraving programmes can be used only together with our programs. A conversion into standard formats is for technical reasons not possible.
On the market you can obtain individual fonts with the designation 'Single line', 'Engraving font' or similar in TrueType format. These are, in reality, no single-track fonts as TrueType allows only closed contours.
||Left, a normal outline font, the symbol is
circumscribed. This font has been created for printing applications and
is unsuitable for engraving tasks. Right, a specially developed single
line font for engraving tasks. Windows TrueType fonts format
can save Outline only.
Below, the font image after milling with a fine tool. Only Outline fonts with very small contour separations result in a more or less usable font image. The outlay for milling, however, lies at almost double the time requirement.
These are included in HCAM and from eSIGN (lg).
These are contained in the HCAM program and can be drawn into the programs from eSIGN (lg) as supplement.
