If you’re making use of a coil gun the way that it runs depends upon the wires. The coils are visible and obvious components that are used in the guns. They have an electromagnetic current which runs an arc through the coils.

These springs create the current and motion in your tattoo machine. The springs work by releasing tension to cause the force that affects the motion of the needle.

If you’re using a rotary machine it has an electrical motor inside the machine that turns, and is able to run other parts that cause the needle to move. Rotary motors are much more reliable and reliable and don’t require internal adjustments.
