"High-power, small spot size, fiber lasers, coupled with high-speed galvo scanheads, can cut thin metals for various applications at speeds that match or exceed traditional hard-tool production rates," added Daun.
The design allows for converting options such as lamination, slitting and a laser upgrade with high-speed Galvo for even faster throughput.
In contrast to galvo mirror systems, the virtual rotation point is very close to the mirror surface.
McIlvane, W., Dube, W., Lionelloe-DeNolf, K., Sema, R., Barros, R., & Galvo, O.
The first two FIFO channels relay information from the main LabVIEW program to the FPGA to control the galvo mirrors and fast electrooptic modulator (EOM) shutter, while the other two record information from the photomultiplier tube (PMT) to create a live image of the fabrication making the communication between the CPU and hardware near real time.
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.
It is not unusual to see patients using propolis and posting information about its ability in diseases fighting and cancer prevention (De Almeid & Menezes 2002; Galvo ett al., 2007; Li ett al., 2010; ElMazoudy et al., 2011).
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.
As the irradiation of the metal surface results in fast removal of materials confined in the laser spot, the laser beam scanning system via x-y galvo scanners was employed to ensure that the ablation occurred on a fresh spot to avoid the formation of deep holes.
With our method, the illumination pattern can be phase-shifted by changing the scanning path with galvo mirrors.
