What exactly are rotary attachments? In essence, they are specialised tools designed to work in tandem with your laser cutting machine. They allow for precise, consistent methods of engraving and cutting cylindrical or otherwise curved objects that would typically be challenging or near-impossible to work with using conventional laser cutting techniques. By effectively ‘rolling’ the object to be worked on, these rotary attachments enable the laser beam to remain focused on the object’s surface consistently.


In this expert guide, we delve into the world of rotary attachments, discussing their unique capabilities, the types of materials and objects they can work with, their varying forms and sizes, and how to select the appropriate attachment for your unique business requirements. Furthermore, we will examine practical applications of rotary attachments in various industries and share valuable tips on integrating rotary attachments into your laser cutting workflow to maximise productivity, innovation, and growth. Join us in our exploration of this promising realm, discovering how your laser cutting business can stand out in the competitive market with a niche expertise in working with cylindrical objects.
