Engraving systems

Unique industry know-how

HELL is the inventor of electromechanical engraving. Engraving systems have been manufactured in Kiel since the 1960s. Currently, a team of over 25 highly qualified specialists develop, manufacture, and maintain the world’s most state-of-the-art engraving systems. HELL’s know-how is thus unique in the industry.

HELL offers the ideal engraving head for all applications

In detail

CS Engraving System

The CS engraving system is the standard engraving system for the HelioKlischograph K2. It differs from conventional 4 kHz engraving systems thanks to its enhanced engraving frequency and the integrated touch memory, which is also used for HelioSprint engraving systems.

HelioSprint 2

HelioSprint 2 is the universal broadband engraving system from HELL. It features high engraving performance with uniform cell geometry and now covers all requirements of the application areas from security, stamps, packaging and decorative printing to varnish and coating rollers. HelioSprint 2 is adjusted using MultiTune. In engraving, this results in sharper contours and less ringing and dragging than with previous systems. As a standard HelioSprint 2 covers the screen range 54 to 100. Optionally, the tuning “coarse screen” is offered, which extends the screen range by the screens 48 and 40 and finds its field of application in the engraving of technical cylinders. Optionally the tuning „XtremeEngraving“ is offered, which, thanks to the write resolution of up to 540 l/cm, enables results that are close to laser engraving. But even coarse screens with cross diagonals of over 900 µm and engraving depths of over 100 µm can be achieved with XtremeEngraving.
