Check out this video where we rotary laser mark a cylinder using X axis rotary combined with a Z axis servo to allow us to mark along the entire length and around the entire circumference.
We used the Jimani Langolier open table fiber laser marking system and with a 20 watt laser. This fiber laser marking system uses the new tiling features in Prolase 7 laser marking software.
