Important note: Be sure to validate what type of connector you need to connect your rotary to your existing laser rotary connector and if it requires 2 or 3 phase stepper to match the driver in use. Some lasers may not be wired for rotary to the controller or may require an external power/driver box. Laser manufacturers may use a varying connector or drivers during the manufacturing process from vendor to vendor. Failure to validate your needs and let the after-market rotary manufacturer know these details may result in compatibility issues with your individual machine. You may also ask a laser manufacturer to assemble your laser at time of purchase with a specific connector if you have existing rotary tools.
After much debate the staff agree – The absolute best value and quality for gantry. All Rolling surfaces are ball bearing supported and precision is enhanced with aluminum timing gears and a fiberglass filled closed loop timing belt. Assembly takes approx. 10 minutes, and lightburn software values are engraved onto the rotary for safe keeping.
The PiBurn V4.0 is LensDigital’s newest rotary offering. It’s patent pending and innovative design makes it super easy to engrave all kinds of cylindrical objects and is a great lower-cost option when looking to enter the premium rotary device market. If you’re serious about upgrading your rotary definitely don’t overlook the PiBurn!
If ultra premium is your thing then you’re going to want to take a close look at one of RotoBoss’ high end rotary devices. The RotoBoss and it’s siblings have been on the market since 2019 and have seen dozens of revisions since then. Jason is constantly on a mission to refine his products and offer the very best the industry has to offer.
This is the big chungus of rotary devices. Manufactured by my best friends over at Mactron this thing is a beast and it’s ready to help you knock out tumblers, cups, mugs and whatever else you might want to throw at it. Super easy to set up! Guides on the YouTube channel included. Obviously, highly recommended.
This rotary tool is much more compact. It’s a bit short to be doing tumblers and cups but it’s AMAZING for working with rings and jewelry along with other small parts. If you’re more into working on jewelry than tumblers this rotary is going to serve you really well.
Don’t skip it!
