Part 1：List of items
The pack of the Rotary Roller Engraving Module comes with the following items:
Part 2：Meet the Rotary Roller Engraving Module
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
Aligning the engraving module in the right position guarantees that the vertical axis of the cylinder is parallel to the vertical axis of the engraving.
The pack contains 2 connection cables. For the Laserbox Rotary, please use the connection cable shown in the figure below. The remaining cable serves to connect the Engraving Module to a different device.
'Part 4: Adjusting the position of the movable roller of the Engraving Module' of this user guide.
70mms is the maximum diameter that a cylinder can have in order to be engraved.
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.
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.
Part 4： Adjusting the position of the movable roller of the Engraving Module
1) Measure the diameter of the cylindrical item to be engraved, and determine the position according to the following table:
Diameter (units: mms)
2) Set the engraving position. For example, you can take the following steps to change the engraving position from 2 to 1:
Make sure that the circular label is not blocked or damaged. Otherwise, Laserbox Rotary may fail to identify the rotary engraving module.
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:
- Turn off the Laserbox
- Open the lid and unplug the cable from the Laserbox end of the Rotary Roller Engraving Module cable
- Take out the Rotary Roller Engraving Module
- Put back the honeycomb board and drawer and close the lid
- Open the device and reconnect the software
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
