The single pivot-point design also prevents the drawback of polarization rotation, which is common with conventional 2-axis stacked systems--for example, galvo scanners.
While Nutfield Tech offers complete laser scanning solutions, one of their frequently sought after solutions is their QS-30 Galvanometer, which is a moving magnet galvo offering strong performance and value for steering 30mm and 45mm aperture galvo mirrors.
Over the last few years, we've introduced the ability to position and control delta robots, hexapods, piezo, and galvo (galvanometers--motors with mounted optical mirrors for positioning lasers) axes.
Records from the Filipinas Heritage Library said Arnaiz and another pilot, Juan Galvo, were the Filipino pilots who flew from Manila to Madrid aboard a plane named Commonwealth on May 29, 1936.
This moving-magnet galvo scanner has capacitive position sensing that offers exceptionally smooth scanning and a long service life for the most challenging galvanometer applications.
Galvo scanners have traditionally been employed in the steering part, but piezo scanners have the advantage of being more precise, with faster response, and provide multiple motion axes integrated into a single device.
