Rotary Engraving

Rotary Engraving

Rotary engraving with a laser means a rotary device is fitted into the laser machine to turn the product. From bottles and pens to glasses or awards, you can have any chosen design engraved onto any cylindrical object.


What is rotary engraving?

If you Google “rotary engraving” most of the search results refer to the mechanical engraving method of rotating a cutting tool to etch a design into the chosen material. Essentially, with laser rotary engraving, cylindrical objects are turned on a motor-powered device fitted to the bed of the laser machine. The laser beam passes over the surface of an item as the object is slowly rotated, producing an engraving that wraps flawlessly around the surface.



Raster engraving

Laser rotary engraving is a raster engraving process, which essentially means that the laser head passes horizontally from left to right, line to line in much the same way as an inkjet printer puts ink on a piece of paper- but instead of ink, the laser uses light and heat to vaporize tiny particles of the material’s surface to create the desired design.

Rotary engraving simply adds in an extra dimension by rotating the surface as the design is created.

Perfectly replicates the original design on your chosen item

As the rotary engraving laser equipment is computer-controlled, the final design perfectly mirrors your original, right down to the last pixel. It can even be duplicated multiple times without any compromise in quality or accuracy.

You’ll be delighted with the shading we can accomplish, simply because the laser is able to work to different depths and can translate greyscale images onto your chosen materials as well as black and white images.

Laser rotary engraving can also deliver fine lines and sharp corners to your designs, ensuring all the detail is engraved.

There’s no contact between by a tool as with traditional engraving, therefore no damage to the surface can occur. Offering amazing clarity without leaving unwanted marks.
