PiBurn Grip Rotary Attachment (Pre-Order)

Take your laser engraving to the next level

The PiBurn Grip is a patent-pending chuck-style rotary attachment for laser engraving machines. The revolutionary PiBurn Grip brings you incredible precision, repeatability, and the freedom to engrave almost anything you can imagine. It will take your laser engraving to the next level.

 

With this rotary you can do almost anything.

 

Why is this so exciting?
The Grip is a chuck-style rotary, but it’s more than that. This PiBurn Grip chuck system was designed and built by LensDigital from scratch. It is the only chuck on a rotary designed specifically for laser engraving. Other systems borrowed from the lathe and drilling applications – they are heavy and bulky and can’t hold the delicate glass without breaking it. In short, they are not ideal for laser engraving. The frustration is something we couldn’t let stand!
We have spent years conceptualizing and bringing this tool to makers, and we are so excited at the new opportunities it will open for you and the products you can offer to your customers.

The benefits of a chuck are plenty, but here are a few:

 

  • Never worry about walking or horizontal shift
  • The cup will not slip, so you can engrave in both directions, not just line by line. This allows for scoring – when the laser moves continuously, like when cutting.
  • You can now make multiple passes and engrave in layers
  • Frame at high speeds – no risk of your tumbler slipping off the rotary
  • Engrave rings, pens, drumsticks, and other small items
  • Engrave mugs with heavy handles without the worry of slipping
  • Engrave non-cylindrical items with ease
  • The Grip uses a Direct drive system, no belts, no gears – fewer parts to wear and break
  • There is no need to change steps – only the object diameter

 

And the benefits of the PiBurn Grip above and beyond any chuck are:

 

  • No tools are required to tighten the Grip! Simple and quick swapping, tighten and loosen with your hands. If you need a little extra, we include a handy little lever to tighten, but it’s super quick and easy.
  • Adjustable angle like the original PiBurn for tampered objects
  • Includes rubber-padded “fingers” for the extra delicate glass items
  • Extra long jaws are to be sold separately for items like dog bowls, rolling pins, and niche applications.
  • The PiBurn Grip is really two rotaries in one, providing you with backup for your operations – there are two separate motors (chuck has a dedicated motor)
  • The jaws are interchangeable, so you can configure the Grip to.. well.. grip anything you can imagine!

 

What can it do?

“What can’t it do” is the better question!

 

Already have a PiBurn and looking to add the Grip to your V3 or V4 PiBurn?

Buy the Grip Addon Kit!

 

Looking to build the PiBurn Omni?

The Omni configuration mounts the Grip on top of the Roller Wheels of your PiBurn V3 or V4. To do this with the V3 you must have a metal clamp, it will not mount on top if you have a plastic clamp. You will still be able to use it as a standalone Chuck rotary.

To build the Omni:

Buy the PiBurn 4.0

and

Buy the Grip Addon Kit!

The below video shows a technique called “Scoring.”

It allows the laser to move in a continuos motion, instead of line by line. This is only possible on the PiBurn Grip as any roller rotary will not have enough friction to allow for the back-and-forth motion needed for this technique.

 

Engrave small objects easily

Oddly shaped objects that can’t sit on wheels are no match for the Grip!
