Best Laser Engravers for Tumblers, Cups & Mugs
All kinds of cups on the market can be carved. Whether glass cups, stainless steel cups or ceramic cups, cups have always been favored by sculptors. However, for different materials, different types of engraving machines can solve the carving problem of different cup materials.
How to use rotary accessories to laser engraver for tumbler cups?
Laser is usually easier to use on a plane where there is a given focal length and distance between the lens and the material surface. Sculpting surfaces such as bottles, vases, and glasses can be challenging, but there are workarounds that can provide some flexibility. For example, you can choose to use a rotary attachment. After inserting the laser machine, when the laser exerts its magic, it can make the glass object rotate. Of course, complex changes in angle and curvature can still cause problems.
The rotary attachment is a device inserted into a laser cutting machine that allows you to engrave on circular objects. The laser can only be fired directly downward, so it is usually impossible to carve along the side and bottom of the object. However, when the laser works, the spinner will slowly rotate the object so that it can carve around the entire object.
If an object is not perfectly round, it may cause problems, ranging from skewed carving to objects falling off rotating attachments. For example, when an object rotates, heavy handles cause the center of mass to move continuously. The other two objects are not symmetrical or perfectly round, which may cause the object to fall off the attachment. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the distance between the two axes according to the diameter of the carved cylindrical object. In addition, it should be noted that ordinary glass cups are made of pure glass materials, and no other metals will be added. Therefore, these glasses can make the carving process and carving effect more consistent, and will not leave some carving spots on the glass surface or crack due to uneven heating.
The best engraving machine for glass cups
No matter glass jars, champagne glasses and wine bottles can be engraved and turned into unique works of art. First, glass can be carved with various laser engraving machines. Whether it is a CO2 laser engraving machine or a fiber laser engraving machine, when the heat of the beam causes the material surface to melt, laser engraving will occur. Laser beams use high temperatures to melt material surfaces. The molten material expands and produces raised marks.
Whether you need internal engraving or surface etching, our Monport laser engraving system can meet your needs. As laser engraving has many advantages over traditional engraving technology, more and more industries use laser engraving, bringing flexibility, speed and repeatability to your application. The Monport CO2 machine, whether small power 40w or 150w, can achieve cylinder engraving by linking the marking rotary axis. If you need to engrave large glasses or a large number of cups, the Monport 40w Lightburn may not be so suitable for you. At this time, you can consider models with 60w or more power.
The best engraving machine for stainless steel cups
This kind of metal engraving machine needs the participation of optical fiber laser engraving machines. The optical fiber laser engraving machine of Monport 30w and Monport 50w can engrave stainless steel cups, and the cups with other metal shells can also be completed through optical fiber marking machine. Especially, the travel cup is very popular now, especially in the United States and Canada. Therefore, stainless steel cup is becoming an attractive choice for picnic and tourism. Therefore, small businesses and DIY enthusiasts may want to start engraving cups, selling them, or surprise their loved ones with carefully marked souvenirs. These cups are usually made of stainless steel, making them perfect for customisable patterns such as personalized numbers, names, logos or images. Most small enterprises considering increasing manual income will generally give priority to the 50W optical fiber laser printer. The rotary axis applicable to Monport's marking machine can meet most of your needs,
Usually, it can be used together to achieve very high quality marks. In addition, the optical fiber marking machine has a long service life, no consumables, and almost no maintenance. The Monport laser marking machine can achieve high output power and high-speed marking, so that the image of stainless steel cup or coated metal cup laser engraving is clean, vivid, and accurate.
