Different Kinds of Jewelry Laser Engraving
There are benefits to choosing either rotary engraving or laser engraving for jewelry laser engraving. So once you understand more about the different types of engraving you can figure out the best type of engraving for the jewelry.
Rotary engraving uses a small bit to damage the surface of the object. People do hand engraving with a traditional rotary engraving tool. About mechanical rotary engraving tools, we have input the design into the computer in advance. Then it etched onto the surface according to the design in program.
Traditional rotary engraving have some drawbacks compared with jewelry laser engraving. Rotary engraving can be very precise, but the design can only be as thin as the bit itself. Also the bit itself needs to be replaced when it gets worn out. It also tends to take a little longer to do traditional rotary engraving.
The largest drawback of traditional engraving is that it cannot engrave certain materials. Traditional rotary engraving cannot process delicate items that are sensitive to heat or pressure. We can’t use it engrave any plastic or glass jewelry, because rotary engraving can damage or break those materials easily.
Jewelry laser engraving uses a high-powered laser beam to etch the surface of the material. Similar to the mechanical rotary engraving machine, We can input the jewelry design into computer. Then jewelry laser engraving will engrave the design according to the drawing. However, laser engraver is more precise because the diameter of the laser is adjustable according to our demand. Also, the intensity of the laser can determine how deep the engraving will be.
Unlike the traditional rotary engravers, you don’t need to worry about the jewelry laser engraving materials. Laser engravers can engrave some extremely sensitive materials, such as paper. While paper is not a common material to make jewelry, it is good to know that no matter what materials you want to engrave, we can customize it with laser engraving.
Also, rotary engraving have fewer accessories, such as drill bits, we need replace them when regular. So if you want to do your own engravings rather than hiring an engraving company, consider a laser engraver as there is much less upkeep than a rotary engraver.
