How to use the rotary engraving attachment with the SpeedMarker lasers

What benefits does the rotary attachment offer?

Using the Trotec SpeedMarker you can use the rotary engraving attachment to laser mark cylindrical and round objects. The rotary engraving attachment allows you to mark round objects by rotating them, ensuring that the laser always remains in focus. The segmentation (division into individual marking sections) is carried out via the SpeedMark marking software. The rotary attachment enables 360° laser marking, both on the circumference and on the inside.

In the software, you select the artwork to be laser marked, set the laser parameters, and the desired segmentation. In order to engrave the inside of a ring, you must position it at an angle under the laser. This ensures that the laser beam does not hit the outer part of the ring (see picture). It's that easy to customise a ring using a Trotec Laser engraver and a rotary attachment.
