Rotary vs. Laser Engraving

Engraving comes in two forms; rotary and laser. The chief difference is the depth of the mark made by each method. Rotary engraving typically makes a deeper mark than laser engraving. This translates into a longer lasting product with the rotary method than with the laser method. However there are certain specifications in which laser engraving is comparable to rotary engraving. Generally, rotary engraving gives a deeper and longer-lasting mark.

Another advantage of rotary engraving is cost. Most rotary machines cost less than a laser machine. However to counter their cost disadvantages, laser engraving machines are capable of marking a wider variety of surfaces than rotary machines. 

Ultimately the choice between rotary vs. laser comes down to use. Most industrial shops use both methods, choosing rotary as the workhorse and laser for specialised applications. Your choice will depend on what works best for you.
