High Accuracy, Open Frame, Thermally Stable Galvo Scanner

High Accuracy, Open Frame, Thermally Stable AGV-HPO Galvo Scanner from Aerotech
The highly repeatable and thermally stable feedback sensors used on the AGV-HPO scanner systems can be calibrated down to single-digit, micron-level accuracy over the field of view. With the extremely low thermal gain drift performance of the position transducers, complex, high-density laser machining applications will maintain consistent micron-level feature placement accuracy over the lifetime of the process. Likewise, high throughput applications will maintain consistent part-to-part quality without having to re-calibrate between parts.

Zaber High and Low Vacuum Compatible Devices

Zaber High and Low Vacuum Compatible Devices
Zaber’s line of vacuum compatible products includes motorized linear actuators, linear stages, and mirror mounts with built-in controllers. High and low vacuum devices use specially designed vacuum stepper motors. High vacuum motors are rated for vacuum levels of 10-6 Torr; low vacuum motors are rated for vacuum levels of 10-3 Torr. Built-in controllers allow devices to be daisy-chained with other T-Series devices inside a vacuum chamber, which reduces wiring clutter.
