Aerotech launches a high accuracy, open frame, thermally stable galvo scanner for a wide range of laser machining and etching applications. The new Nmark AGV-HPO scanner attains single-digit, micron-level accuracy over the field of view. It offers industry-leading resolution of >24 bits when used with Aerotech’s Nmark CLS controller, the company reports.
Applications include Laser Processing, Electronics Manufacturing, Printed Circuit Boards, Glass, Plastics, Medical devices, Metal Processing, Optics, photonics and Laboratories.
The AGV-HPO position transducers have extremely low thermal gain drift performance. This ensures consistent micron-level feature placement accuracy in complex, high-density laser machining applications that take long periods of time to complete. Likewise, high throughput applications will maintain consistent part-to-part quality without having to re-calibrate between parts.
The scanner’s multiple input apertures and mirror coatings support a variety of laser wavelengths. Its open-frame design reduces cost and allows for more flexible laser beam delivery. The AGV-HPO is available with right-side and left-side input apertures for “mirror image” machine builds or side-by-side scanner mounting with a single laser beam split to source both scanners.
Aerotech is a leading global supplier of positioning and motion control products for industry, government, science and research institutions. Its products provide critical performance for demanding applications requiring high precision, high-throughput motion control solutions.
