Panto-Gravers Inc is a small Minnesota industrial engraving company that has consistently produced exceptional results for over 40 years. Heinz Hoch and son Klaus purchased the business in 1977 and worked together, along with other family members, until Heinz retired in 2006. Since then Klaus and his brother, Horst, have run the company.
They have a combined 60 years of experience in producing quality industrial engraving.
The machines come in 2 dimensional as well as 3 dimensional formats. 2 dimensional are used for ordinary numbering, identification or mold and die engraving. 3 dimensional are used to produce various shapes and contours that are not possible to produce with traditional milling equipment.
These machines have, today, been mostly replaced with CNC (computer controlled) equipment and the skill required to run pantographs is quickly becoming a lost art. However, there are still many projects that either cannot be done using CNC equipment or can be done more quickly and more economically using pantographs.
With our experience engraving steel, plastics, aluminum, stainless steel, wood and bronze you will not regret your decision.
