Advantages of SAUNO machines

SAUNO company has a great experience in the production of impact engraving equipment.

Our machines are widely known. They are popular in monument making firms around the world.

Many businesses owe five, ten and more SAUNO machines.

What distinguishes SAUNO machines?
Precision mechanics

The necessary and most important condition for high-quality engraving. Ball screw drives of the German production.

Full automation

SAUNO machine is a three-coordinate automatic machine. Manual settings are not required.

Top performance

High speed without sacrificing quality, impact frequency up to 2000 Hz. Partial engraving mode for increased productivity.

Unique engraving modes

Three engraving modes, a wide range of resolutions, flexible settings provide excellent quality on any material.

Electronic level sensor

Machine automatically monitors the inclination and unevenness of the workpiece surface.

What are the most important features of an engraving machine?

1. Engraving quality
2. Performance
3. Reliability
4. Simplicity and convenience of work

1. Engraving quality

The engraving machine is primarily evaluated by the quality of the work it performs.

Whatever other advantages the machine has, of two portraits, any person will always choose the one that is better made. Quality issue becomes a key factor in the face of fierce competition among engraving companies. The workshop that will win the competition will be the one whose final product will be better than that of its neighbors.

SAUNO machines provide the highest quality of engraving on any material.

Your work will be the best.

More about engraving quality...

Why SAUNO machines provide the highest engraving quality

- High-precision ball screw drives (ball screws) made in Germany. Lack of backlash. Dust protection.
- Three engraving modes: dot, amplitude, combined. Settings for any stone structure.
- Resolution adjustment (engraving step) from 0.025 mm to 1.0 mm 
- No lines and traces of "machine" engraving, even at maximum speed.
- Powerful impact at high speed. Engraving done in one pass.
- Non-linear adjustment of the impact strengh graph in 256 shades.
- Mode for engraving individual halftones.
- Automatic re-pass.
- Setting different engraving modes for the first and second pass with automatic execution.
- List of materials. Saving engraving parameters for different workpiece structures.
2. Performance
The faster the engraving is done, the more profit the machine brings. SAUNO machines have the highest productivity.

The high speed of SAUNO machines is achieved without compromising the quality of the engraving.

More about performance...

Why SAUNO machines are so fast

- Engraving frequency up to 2000Hz.
- Cell mode. Automatic division of the image into parts to speed up the engraving process.
- Automatic re-pass. No need to wait to start the second pass manually.
- Mask selection of image fragments increases productivity and reduces needle wear.
3. Reliability
SAUNO machines are exceptionally reliable due to excellent German-made mechanics, reliable electronic components, simple and carefully thought-out modular design.
The SAUNO impact head is stable and durable thanks to its magnetic suspension.
In more than 20 years of sales, not a single machine has been written off due to critical wear.

The simple fact is that our machines operate thousands of miles away.

Why SAUNO machines are reliable

- Ball screw drives (ball screws) and German-made guides on all three axis.
- Impact head on a magnetic suspension without springs. Stable operation.
- Electronic level and gap sensors instead of complex and capricious mechanics. The complete absence of manual adjustments.

- Auto gap adjustment. It is not necessary to adjust the gap when changing it in program settings and as the needle wears
- Electronic level sensor. Does not press or scratch the stone surface, is not afraid of dust

- Control of the exit of the engraving tool outside the workpiece. Protects against needle breakage due to operator errors.
- The modular design of the machine simplifies its maintenance and repair.
- Auto-shutdown in case of power failures with the subsequent resumption of work from an interrupted place.
- Zero point of the machine. Recovery from power failures even in the absence of a UPS,
4. Simplicity and convenience of work 
Our machine uses advanced technology, which is why it is the simplest and most unpretentious in operation.
We have replaced the mechanical tracking system with an electronic one because the electronics are more reliable and easier to maintain.

Why it is convenient to work on SAUNO machines

- Compactness, mobility. The machine weighs from 20 kg, it is easy to move it in the workshop from place to place.
- No need to fix the tile in the machine or attach the machine to the stone.
- If you have a large stone, the machine can be placed on top of the slab.
- Engraving on ovals and figured monuments. Engraving in a vertical position. Engraving without indents.
- Bypass the image along the contour. Eliminates errors in placing a picture on an irregularly shaped workpiece.
- Level sensor. The workpiece does not need to be leveled. Work on uneven and inclined surfaces.
- Vertical Z drive with auto gap adjustment. No manual settings required for slabs of different thicknesses.
- Adjustment of impact strengh directly in the course of an engraving.
- Works from any computer (desktop, laptop, netbook) with Windows XP/ Vista/ Windows 7/ 8.
- Connecting to a computer via USB with communication interference protection.
- Connecting multiple machines to one computer.
- The machine does not take up computer resources. You can simultaneously control multiple machines from one device.
- Adjustment of the sizes, indents and an arrangement of the picture on a tile in the Engrave program.
- Display the engraving process and tool movement on the computer screen.
- Pre-calculation of engraving time.
- Preview of the engraving result on the stone in the Engrave program.
- Transferring images from Adobe Photoshop to Engrave with a simple "Copy/Paste" command.

Automatic needle wear control.
