There are two types of machines: rotary and digital. Both use a hand piece that drives the needle up and down to deposit pigment into the skin, but their parts differ. Like choosing the right needle, choosing the right device is key.
Rotary machines usually have multiple pieces that are assembled prior to a procedure including a needle, tip, coupler, and casing. Rotary devices operates without a computerized power source and can have less consistent power output and have higher pen vibration.
The main difference between digital and rotary is the power source. With digital, there is typically a control panel with an engineered chip to control the device. Needles in digital machines move up and down very precisely (think the motions of a sewing machine) and have lower vibration.
