Common Technology

Limitations of Rotary Devices

Old rotary

Most laser engraving machines use a rotary device to turn cylindrical objects during the laser marking process. This process can be very time consuming and, when engraving glass, can be somewhat of a high risk. Why? Due to its shape and delicate nature, cylindrical glass can be difficult to clamp, resulting in it slipping and the defective engraved product becoming unusable. And that’s not the only limitation. When using a rotary device, the laser beam delivery can only be in one plane (most commonly zero degrees), yet for the best results when laser engraving on glass, it’s required to deliver the beam at angles other than zero. In short, by using a rotary device, the highest quality of laser marking isn’t achievable.

We get it. A rotary device isn’t the most effective solution to laser engrave a non-flat surface. So what’s the alternative? Enter: the 3-Axis.


The Power of 3-Axis Marking

By using a 3-axis beam for 3D laser engraving, all the obstacles you face when using a rotary device are overcome. A state-of-the-art system, a 3-axis allows you to mark curvatures on your creations and, when combined with the rotary system, you can achieve unbeatable results.
Combining the benefits of 3-axis beam delivery with a rotary device means you can achieve maximum quality and surface area across almost any-shaped surface that is within scope of the technology. With a full understanding of the technology incredible results can be achieved. By combining the two systems, you can give your business huge commercial advantages compared to the conventional technology that most competitors will be using.



Here’s an example of the incredible detail that can be achieved using a Lotus Laser System Meta-C 5W UV laser and a 3-axis beam delivery. The 3-axis beam delivery system holds focus by mapping the 2D artwork onto a 3D model of the object then dynamically adjusting the focal point as it contacts the object’s surface. From the brightness of the mark to the crisp and clear 700um wide hairline seen on the (R) symbol, this is 3D laser engraving at its absolute finest.
