Galvanometer-based Optical Scanners

Our ScannerMAX division specializes in the production of galvanometer-based optical scanners that are ideal for moving small laser beams fast, with incredible accuracy and precision.

For beam apertures in the 1mm to 10mm range, our patented and award-winning “Stronger, Cooler, Faster” galvo construction provides significant performance advantages over conventional galvos that are on the market today, while still maintaining highly competitive price points.

The ScannerMAX Advantage Explained

The ScannerMAX advantage is achieved implementing three guiding principles, defined below:

STRONGER – All ScannerMAX galvos incorporate a stiffer (what we call “stronger”) rotor design, including larger-diameter shafts along with an enhanced mirror mounting technique. The stronger rotor pushes torsional- and bending-mode resonances higher, eliminating “wiggles” in projected lines, thus allowing higher speeds. In addition, we use special bearing materials and a stronger position feedback (higher signal-to-noise ratio), to ensure optimal performance.

COOLER – ScannerMAX galvos incorporate unique magnetic designs, which provide high torque but a low coil resistance. Since heat is directly proportional to coil resistance, a lower coil resistance means a cooler-running motor. Heat is certainly a performance-limiting factor, especially at faster scan speeds. The ScannerMAX magnetic designs simply run cooler.

FASTER – When you add the “stronger” aspect of our rotor design, our bearing materials and our position signal, to the “cooler” aspect of our magnetic design, this combination allows us to achieve higher scanning speeds — generally well in excess of conventional galvanometers.
