Application Notes

AGV-SPO High-Performance Single Pivot-Point Galvanometer

Larger field of view than traditional 2D scanners simplifies the processing of larger parts
Minimal spot distortion over the entire field of view minimizes processing variation for the highest quality laser-processed parts
Air and water cooling options provide thermal stability and improve long-term accuracy
Broad selection of mirror surface treatments support a variety of laser wavelengths

Rapid Plastic ID with Extended Range Raman

Successful recycling depends on >99% sorting accuracy at high speed. Raman’s power to quickly discriminate between plastics has never been better than with the new WP 785 ER, the latest addition to our high performance Raman product line.

Circular Variable ND Filters

Customizable Circular Variable Neutral Density (CVND) filters change light intensity from 100 percent to less than 0.1 percent. Densities can be supplied as a standard linear or customized gradient function, which can range from 45° to 360° of rotation. Features include laser and broadband coatings, substrates from 1- to 8-in. diameters, and functional wavelengths from the UV to the far-IR.

Galvo Scanner Controller with 192 kHz Servo Rate and Position-Based Laser Control

Closed-loop, two-axis servo drive for Aerotech’s AGV series scanners

Infinite Field of View (IFOV) seamlessly combines AGV and servo motion to expand the scanner work area

“Zero-tracking error” eliminates speed-related part distortion such as necking on circles and rounding of corners

Position-based laser firing (PSO) with windowing maintains consistent spot spacing over a wide range of operating speeds

Fiber-optic interface
