Choose The Best Process for your plaque
The sand-casting process is involving a positive mold made of any material such as metal, plastic, or wood and used to make a sand negative mold. The metal, which will be your plaque is heated, melted, and then poured into the sand casting. After cooling, the solid plaque is released from the sand and cleaned up, imperfections removed and polished
Etched plaques are chemically engraving or etched. Applying a coated resist layer, the parts not protected by the resist are eaten away. Etching creates and exact reproduction of photos or detailed artwork. It is used for aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, and stainless steel. The etching process can make halftones like newspaper photographs.
Machined are made with a CNC machine and a computer patters. Starting with a slab of metal such as Bronze, Brass or Aluminum, the CNC router cut away or removes the metal not wanted to reveal the plaque you want. CNC routing makes beautiful, detailed, plaques, but can require some polishing to remove the tooling makes. It is also exact, and reproducible. Sometimes “exact” is good and other times the imperfections of other methods are desired.
