Plate etching

Brown McFarlane have three different ways of creating markings on plates. Usually done for identification of individual plates or for future reference to process plates, we can hand stamp each plate. We also offer the ability to etch a marking on each plate via our Viper cutting machine or our S.I.C machine to ensure a higher quality, more permanent mark
