What Can You Make with a Tumbler Laser Engraver?

Custom tumblers have emerged as a stylish and functional accessory for everyday life. Brands like Yeti and Stanley stand out for their quality and durability, making them ideal candidates for laser engraving.

No matter the material, be it metal, plastic, or powder-coated surfaces, laser engraving machines can handle all. Whether it's a personalized gift, a branding item, or as a business, laser engravers can handle designs from simple to complex and detailed, including text, logos, monograms, and graphics.

How Does Laser Engraving Tumblers Work?

The laser engraving process removes the top layer of the material to reveal a contrasting color underneath, creating a permanent design without compromising the tumbler's structural integrity or insulation properties.

Given the cylindrical shape of tumblers, a rotary attachment is essential for achieving uniform engravings around their curved surfaces.

Laser engravers for metal tumblers (stainless steel)

Fiber laser engravers are best suited for engraving stainless steel tumblers as they can engrave metal directly. For DIY use, diode( blue or infrared light) lasers are also suitable options.

If you use a CO2 laser engraver, you cannot directly engrave stainless steel tumblers. This is because the stainless steel will reflect the laser beam of the CO2 laser, making it impossible to engrave.

To overcome this challenge with CO2 lasers, you need to apply a temporary coating to the stainless steel before engraving. Common choices include tempera paint or laser marking spray.

If your tumbler has a powder coat. It can be directly engraved by a fiber, diode or CO2 laser engraver.

Laser engravers for non-metallic tumblers and cups

CO2 laser engravers are the preferred choice for engraving on glass, ceramic, and plastic tumblers, cups, and mugs. This is because non-metallic materials readily absorb the wavelength of light emitted by a CO2 laser. Fiber laser engravers can also engrave plastic and ceramic drinkware.

Matching A Laser For Different Tumbler Shapes 

There are irregular shapes of tumblers available on the market, such as Stanley tumblers with handles. Thus, you need a laser engraver with a rotary attachment that can cater to the common shapes and sizes of tumblers.

World's first 4-in-1 rotary attachment for laser engraver

The xTool RA2 Pro is the world's first 4-in-1 laser engraver rotary attachment that meets diverse needs of engraving on cylindrical and spherical objects.

Its chuck rotary mode is specifically tailored for tumblers, mugs, and cups, providing a secure grip and precise rotation. It can accommodate almost any shape and size of tumblers commonly available on the market.
