Surgical Instruments — Marking & Etching
Vibrating engraving devices are not recommended because:
- They scratch off the protective surface of the instrument
- The box lock area is weakened
- Engraving creates a "bed" for bacteria
- Interferes with restoration/refinishing
Acid-base etching can be performed by IMS or you may purchase an etching machine kit (Order #256AS available from Spectrum) to perform your own marking.
