Now anyone can produce beautiful, professional engraving of text and scanned graphics right from their computer. Roland designed the EGX-20 to be remarkably easy to operate, even for beginners. The EGX-20 is large and powerful enough to handle a wide variety of engraving jobs, including awards, product serial numbers, office directories, personalized items and more, yet small enough to fit comfortably on your desktop. Thanks to its intuitive joystick and dial controls, operation is uncomplicated for both novices and experienced professionals. The EGX-20 includes everything you need to get started immediately, including a complete suite of engraving software.
Among the most revolutionary of the EGX-20's features is its Automatic Surface Tracking System. AST automatically tracks the height of the material to ensure engraving at a consistent depth, even on bowed or non-uniform surfaces. Unlike systems that can take extensive trial and error to learn, AST makes setting the origin point and cutting depth effortless. Now you can produce consistently beautiful results with less learning time and less wasted materials.
With its 15,000-rpm spindle motor, the EGX-20 is powerful enough to engrave on a wide variety of popular materials, including acrylics, PVC, ABS, polycarbonate and wood. With the optional diamond scraper and burnishing attachment, you can also scribe light metals such as aluminum and brass for awards. Securing the material to the worktable is easy with the included adhesive sheet. Once you select the material to be engraved from the menu of the included software, the EGX-20 automatically determines optimum cutting speed and tool path, assuring smooth accurate results.
Included with the EGX-20 is a complete suite of software: Dr. Engrave for nameplate engraving, 3D Engrave for producing reliefs and Virtual MODELA for simulating finished work.

Thanks to its unique AST system, the EGX-20 can engrave on a wide variety of materials for personalizing gifts and novelty items.
Dr. Engrave software includes an automatic layout function for importing Excel and CSV database files for fast engraving of product serial numbers and nametags.
With 3D Engrave, the EGX-20 easily creates reliefs from bitmap images.
