How to use the laser rotary attachment to engrave tumblers on a laser engraving or cutting machine:

1.Setting Up the Laser Rotary Attachment:

Begin by connecting the rotary axis to the laser engraving or cutting machine, securing it firmly in place. Once secured, position the object intended for engraving onto the roller. Adjust the roller to accommodate objects of various sizes. Take note not to overtighten the drum during rotation to prevent slippage.

2.Preparing the Design:

Utilize laser engraving or cutting software to ready the design for engraving onto the cylindrical object. Ensure the design or pattern aligns with the object’s circumference. Keep in mind that due to the nature of rotation, some deviation between the starting and ending points is anticipated, making perfect alignment challenging. Avoid creating a pattern that matches the exact circumference to mitigate potential discrepancies.

3.Adjusting Settings:

A recommended benchmark is 4400 steps per rotation. However, it’s crucial to measure your roller diameter, as it may vary based on the model. Input the precise value for accurate calibration. Adjust the laser settings—such as power, speed, and focus—to match the material and thickness of the cylindrical object. To optimize the process, employ USER ORIGIN in conjunction with the rotation rather than using the current position or absolute coordinates.

4.Starting the Laser and Rotary Attachment:

Activate both the laser and rotary device to initiate the engraving or cutting process. Vigilantly monitor the process to ensure the laser accurately follows the object’s pattern, engraving or cutting as intended.

5.Completing the Work:

Once the engraving or cutting process is finished, deactivate the laser and rotary attachment. Carefully remove the cylindrical object from the roller and thoroughly inspect the final product for quality and accuracy.
