I have used a laser engraver for quite some time and i could say is the best. Laser engraving is a non-contact method hence minimizing the wear and tear on the tools. It is also very fast and creates clean mark.
Rotary engraving has its advantages too. you can use it to engrave all kind of metals be they coated or not. It can also make very deep cuts into a variety of materials ranging from plastics to those as hard as stainless steel.
Some New developments on Rotary engraving: 1. Electronic surface detection system. This is one of the newest user friendly feature of Rotary engraving cutters. It allows the engraving machines to automatically identify the surface of the material. The Z-Axis will adjust itself continuously to the material surface as the engraving continues. with this you can actually guess the advantage.. absence of uneven engraving curves or depths. 2. Improved speed. most rotary engraving machines are 3 times faster as compared to the old ones. Does this not increase productivity? 3. Red laser pointers. You can now easily set up your machine and preview your work. the red laser pointer is used to define the area being engraved in an item. This info is automatically sent to the layout software. No more use of rulers...
