Bronze and brass name plate engraving

We were contacted by G.L Watson yacht designers to assist in producing a bronze engraved plaque as they were having difficulties in getting the deep engravings produced to a good standard.
We were then commissioned to machine and engrave a name plate in bronze for a newly design tender for the Malahne super yacht that was being rebuilt at Pendennis ship yard.
The client was really happy with the results and we were then commissioned by Pendennis shipyard to machine engrave the top step plates for the Bridge Ladders.

The Bronze engraved plaque was a tread step for boarding the classic motor launch built for the Malahne classic Super yacht.
With the brief we were given the basic cad file and we then edited and modified it to suit the job and design, then we programmed our cnc milling machine to machine the deep engraving and finished with vapor blasting.
The engraved plaque measured 432mm x 109mm

Bronze plate can be difficult to machine nicely as it can be quite soft in plate form making the swarf stringy and creating lots of burrs on the cut edges but we were able to use our skills to over come this.
A close up is shown here with a penny on top for a sense of scale you can see the deep engraving and the quality of the finished part, this is after it had been cleaned and vapor blasted.
