IM3: the iconic pantograph by Gravotech
- Manual engraving machine
The IM3 pantograph works on its own, without a computer, electronic device, or software. Select your characters among a full set and start manually engraving. The arm is fitted with a stylus and moves in the groove of the model, while the other arm fitted with a pin reproduces the composition. With our timeless Pantograph, you can produce superior engravings without screens.
- Simple engraver with a vintage mechanic
No fancy design or decorated structure, the IM3 is a vintage engraving machine that claims its belonging to the old industrial times. The mechanical structure is easy to access when needed as it is entirely bare. Watch your engraving being done while making it, and instantly see the result of your work!
- Constant engraving line
Thanks to the ingenious vibration-resistant depth adjustment nose, the engraving remains constant regardless of the material. Engrave brass, copper, steel, plastic, wood, and much more. Several styluses are available for different results.
Quickly position the item for instantaneous engraving.
The line to be engraved is automatically centered.
Easy cutter adjustment
The pin mechanism is designed to easily fasten and adjust the cutter.

The Pantograph is both timeless and a journey through time: the IM3 is the creation of decades of enhancements while using a technique that has existed since ancient Greece. Surprise and amaze your customer by manually engraving their gift, plate or flat jewel: it is your know how and expertise that will make their objects unique. Why not even invite them to select their characters and put them on the character runner themselves?
Having a manual pantograph does not mean that you are limited in your engravings. We provide a full range of clamps and tools to suit all of your applications: jaw covers for plate engraving, jewelry, watches, badges, pens and depth adjustment noses. Engrave, bevel and score with our different cutters made from steel, carbide, or diamond. More than 40 international character sets are available.
Help reduce the CO2 emissions with our IM3 pantograph machine. Suppress the need for power by replacing the spindle with a diamond tip that does not rotate. The simplicity makes transport easy and our Pantographs stood the test of time!
