Kern's new Z12 Monument Etching System offers the greatest amount of detail available in the monument etching industry. The strong solid steel frame and extra high gantry is designed to handle heavy stones up to 12" thick. A wrap around gantry and roller bed table makes loading and unloading of material quick and easy. The low profile table and pass through design allows for easier integration of existing conveyor systems. Urns and caskets can also be engraved with the Z12 model.
Increase your shop productivity with the ability to etch monuments at speeds up to 150 ips. For example, a square foot of etching on granite can be completed in less than 4 minutes!
Vacuum Table for Urn and Casket Engraving
A vacuum table is available for cutting and engraving materials that give off fumes and debris. The lightweight aluminum table can be easily lifted onto the roller bed and locked into position. Two 4" ports at the back of the table remove the fumes and debris by venting them to the outside of your building or to a fume extractor.
The Z12 machine also has the ability to personalize wooden urns and caskets. Shown below you can see how images and various designs can be 3D engraved directly onto the surface of an urn adding a personalized touch. The urn photographs below were supplied by The Davis Whitehall Co.
