|CNC Made Seal (en)|
As raw material we use soapstone. Our soapstone specifically sourced and is free from asbestos. The main machine used for moulding the signet our CNC machine. We engrave a unique emblem or logo into a prepared piece of soapstone. Soapstone is used due to its soft material, which is great for CNC usage, and its resistance to heat, water and sealing wax. This is especially needed during the sealing process involving higher temperatures.

As a preparatory step we split the bigger soapstone blocks into small plates, which are easier to handle and mount within the CNC machine.

The soapstone is basically cut from the source material with a wood saw. Rough and uneven edges are grinded and straightened to make handling and mounting easier afterwards.
