This additional attachment is placed inside of the Laserbox Rotary to support the cylindrical objects to be engraved. It consists of the following parts:

 

 

Part 3:Installing the Engraving Module in the Laserbox Rotary

1.Before you begin,make sure the device is turned off, open the lid of the device. Remove the two screws in front of the honeycomb plate and remove the tray.
 

 

2. Remove the screws on both sides of the honeycomb plate and take out the honeycomb plate.
3. Remove the six screws on the back of the tray and remove the plate.
4. Put the tray back into the Laserbox.
 
 
5.Put the Rotary Roller Engraving Module into the position as shown in the image below, close to the green line (the green line is only for reference; it is not marked on the Laserbox).
6.Plug the cable of the Engraving Module into the aviation connector of the Laserbox and tighten the nut. Keep the connection cable as close to the bottom as possible to prevent laser damage to the cable.
7. Turn on the Laserbox,open Laserbox software and connect the device.

 

8. The software detects the Rotary Roller Engraving Module and enters into cylinder engraving mode.
 

 

9.Measure the diameter of the cylinder to be engraved and change the movable roller to the corresponding position. To know how to change the position of the movable roller, please read

'Part 4: Adjusting the position of the movable roller of the Engraving Module' of this user guide.

 

Attention:

70mms is the maximum diameter that a cylinder can have in order to be engraved.

 

10.When the object's diameter is less than 30mm, The Rotary Roller Engraving Module needs to be raised to reach the focus range of the laser.

For example, if the diameter of the cylinder is 17mm, a flat object with a thickness of at least 13mm needs to be placed below the Rotary Roller Engraving Module.

Padding minimum thickness = 30-17mm = 13mm

If an object with a thickness of exactly 13mm cannot be found, an object with a thickness greater than 13mm can be used as the padding object. If the thickness of the object is 16mm, then 16mm will be filled in the z-axis offset.

 
 

Attention

If the surface of the engraved cylinder is smooth, such as glass, you can put a strip of masking tape (easy-to-tear, grainy stickers) around the top and bottom of the cylinder to prevent it from slipping and misaligning while rotating.

 

 

11.After entering the engraving mode, the software will automatically show a yellow line at the axis position of the cylinder, which indicates the starting position where the engraving will begin. If the position of the yellow line is not on the axis of the object to be engraved, drag the yellow line to the axis of the object.

Part 5:Switching from the cylindrical to the 2D work mode

If you need to return to the 2D laser cutting / engraving mode, follow the next steps:

  1. Turn off the Laserbox
  2. Open the lid  and unplug the cable from the Laserbox end of the Rotary Roller Engraving Module cable
  3. Take out the Rotary Roller Engraving Module
  4. Put back the honeycomb board and drawer and close the lid
  5. Open the device and reconnect the software

 

Attention:

This process may result in Laserbox errors if the machine is not shut down as indicated in step 1

Try not to unplug the connection cable at the end of the Rotary Roller Engraving Module; this may lead to poor contact or even damage

If the interface is not returned to the 2D laser cutting / engraving mode, press Ctrl+shift+k on the keyboard at the same time, then it can automatically switch to 2D laser cutting / engraving mode
