Optical Scanners and Deflectors

Laser material processing has many applications where our solutions are often used. These 2-axis laser beam deflection units and 3-axis submodules and units and subsystems can be used in many other industries.

Our deflection units are used in applications where a focused laser beam needs to be directed onto a workpiece. The possible applications of such laser processing can hardly be fully enumerated. In cooperation with our customers, our R & D department is constantly developing products for new applications. Typical applications for our deflection units include, for example Marking in 3D, ITO patterning, Laser cutting, and Flexible 2.5 D Deep engraving.

Our 2-axis deflection units can be used to deflect a laser beam in X and Y directions. This produces a two-dimensional area allowing a laser to be directed at any position. This area is known as the "marking field” as shown in the diagram. Deflection is performed by two mirrors, each of which is moved by a galvanometer scanner. The deflection unit has a beam input, into which the laser beam is fed, and a beam output, through which a laser beam is emitted from the unit after deflection.

Indisputably the best solution by far for large field processing with small spot diameters. These robust units combine speed and flexibility with working fields of up to 1,500x1,500 mm². Available in individual modules, the AXIALSCAN and FOCUSSHIFTER are equipped with innovative RAYLASE technology.

3-axis submodules were developed due to cost and size limitations on the output lens and the beam aperture limitations with 2-axis deflection units, which limit their ability to produce smaller spot sizes over medium size scanning fields. 3-axis subsystems meet customers' application requirements for large processing fields with smaller spot sizes and allows the user to change the working distance, field and spot size with the same deflection unit. 3-axis technology also benefits applications on the fly with moving targets, while in 3D applications the setup enables processing of non-flat parts or uneven surfaces and high power products. These solutions are now available for Nd:YAG, diode, and CO2 lasers.
