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.
