Three Diamond Cut Nameplate Options

Diamond Cut Aluminum Nameplates

A diamond cut nameplate features crisp distinctive graphics.  The process involves embossing graphics and using a rapidly rotating industrial diamond to cut the surface of the aluminum.  There are four commonly used options when diamond cutting an aluminum nameplate.  I will review four of the diamond cut alternatives here: 

  1. Phalynx - a series of fine overlapping cuts creating small diamond shapes
  2. Fine Zebra - the most reflective option for diamond cut surfaces
  3. Zebra - a series of tightly spaced cuts in arching lines

A close look at the surface of graphics cut with the phalynx diamond cut reveals crisp diamond shapes.  This process is controlled to offer sharp graphics with a detailed surface ranging from a very fine to coarse diamond cut pattern.

Fine Zebra Diamond Cut
