3-Jaw Chuck Rotary Attachment
Easily engrave cylindrical shaped items.
When you're looking for highly-accurate marking of cylindrical parts, the 3-Jaw Chuck is the ideal choice. The Rotary Attachment is an indispensable tool that allows designers and manufactures to mark cylindrical parts, pieces and components more conveniently than ever before.
Fully programmable for a wide variety of diameters, the 3-Jaw Chuck can accommodate a significant range of material sizes. Additionally, the available tail-stock support fixture ensures correct focus on longer items. For more information, click here.
For engraving items that accommodates different part sizes.
Epilog's Rim-style rotary attachment will ensure all of your parts receive a professional mark that meets the highest standards. Great for marking cylindrical items, place your item on the two rim-style wheels and start engraving.
Designed for usability, you can switch from item to the next in seconds. the attachment easily adjusts for different lengths and will even rotate cylinders that have different diameters on each end. For more information, click here.
1.5- and 5-inch lenses are ideal for marking at different resolutions and on uniquely-shaped items.
Epilog's FiberMark system comes with a standard 3-inch focus lens (FiberMark 24) and 5-inch (FiberMark Fusion). This will suffice for most metal/plastic marking application. However, users will find some applications require our more specialized 1.5- and 5- inch lenses.
- Provides an additional 1.5" of z-axis clearance for both engraving flat stock and for rotary use.
- 1.5" lens also has a smaller spot size and provides excellent detailed engraving for smaller text and artwork.
- Offers more depth of field than our standard 3.0" lens on the FiberMark 24. Amount of depth of field will vary depending on the material, wattage and type of mark desired.
- Provides consistent engraving/marking on curved surfaces or slightly bowed surfaces.
- Excellent for engraving on the inside/bottom surface of an item (bowl, box, tooling) up to 5" tall.
Epilog FiberMark Laser Series Models
Two models to choose from to meet your needs.
Epilog FiberMark 24: The FiberMark 24 is our original Fiber laser system featuring a large 24" x 12" engraving area. It is the first flying-optic fiber laser system to be introduced and has built its reputation for high-quality marks and robust mechanics.
Epilog FiberMark Fusion 32: With the FiberMark Fusion 32, we've designed our best performing laser ever. It's the culmination of 25 years of design, coming together to showcase a laser that has the smoothest motion controls, easiest to use design, and with more setup features than ever before.

The source is a fiber laser: a fiber optic cable that has been doped with ytterbium, a rare earth element.
The fiber laser produces the same wavelength of light and the same marks. YAG lasers typically require cooling and more maintenance.
Yes, especially to the operator's eyes. Additionally the wavelength will pass through common Lexan or glass materials, which is why the viewing window has been impregnated with an organic compound that absorbs the fiber energy. Do not run the laser with the safety locks defeated.
The FiberMark pulls 8-10 amps on a 110-volt circuit, and 4-5 amps on a 220 volt circuit.
All metals can be engraved into with some depth; however, some metals are more amenable to depth engraving. Softer aluminum material will engrave with depth with only a few passes. The best way to test your material is with our Applications Lab.
The FiberMark can only cut through very thin gauge metals. We've had success at cutting up to 0.012" (.30 mm) thick metals.
Yes, by using the polished mark settings for bare metal, the black oxide color will be removed to expose the lighter native metal color.
Systems start at under $30,000 (US price only) for a 10 watt FiberMark.
