A laser scan head is a component of a laser system that is used to direct a laser beam to specific points in several dimensional areas. It is commonly used in laser micromachining, laser marking, laser engraving, and other precision laser processing applications.

The laser scan head is typically controlled by a computer that provides the desired scanning pattern and laser power levels. This allows for precise control over the laser processing, and enables the creation of complex patterns, shapes, and features with high accuracy and repeatability.

Laser scan heads are available in various configurations and sizes, depending on the application requirements. Some scan heads can be integrated with multiple lasers, enabling simultaneous processing with different wavelengths and power levels. Others can be equipped with additional sensors, such as cameras or microscopes, to provide real-time monitoring of the processing results.

2 Axis Laser Scan Heads

3 Axis Laser Scan Heads

A 2-axis laser scan head is capable of moving the laser beam in two dimensions, typically in the X and Y axis. This allows for precise control over the position of the laser beam within a two-dimensional scanning area. The 2-axis laser scan head is a versatile and essential tool in many laser processing applications, providing the precision control required to achieve high-quality results.

Wavelengths: 355nm, 532nm, 1064nm, 10.6µm
Repeatability (µrad): 10-12
Weight (kg): 1.5, 1.85, 2.1, 5.5, 5.8 (approximate)

A 3-axis laser scan head is a device capable of scanning a laser beam in three dimensions, X, Y, and Z axis. This means that it can create more complex and detailed patterns on a variety of surfaces, including curved surfaces. The X and Y axes control the movement of the laser beam in the horizontal plane, while the Z axis controls the movement of the laser beam in the vertical plane, allowing the scan head to create intricate patterns and shapes on surfaces that have different heights or angles.

Polygon Motor Laser Scan Heads

USP Laser Polygon Scan Heads

A polygon motor laser scan head uses a rotating polygon-shaped mirror to scan a laser beam across a surface. The polygon mirror rotates at high speed, reflecting the laser beam onto the surface to create a pattern of charged areas that correspond to the image.

Speed: > 55,000 RPM
Bearing Type: Ball, Aerodynamic/Aerostatic
Housing Design: Cantilevered/Captured
Encoder Option: Available
Speed stability: < 0.02% - 0.05% (load dependent)

A USP (Ultra Short Pulse) laser polygon scan head is a high-speed scanning system that uses a rotating polygon mirror to deflect the laser beam in a rapid, controlled manner. The polygon scan head is designed to operate with ultrafast pulsed lasers, which emit extremely short laser pulses in the range of picoseconds or femtoseconds. The USP laser polygon scan head is capable of very high-speed scanning, typically in the range of several thousand scans per second. This allows for fast and precise marking and engraving of a wide range of materials.

Wavelength: 355nm, 532nm, 1064nm, 10.6µm
Input Beam Size: 15mm
F-theta Lens Focal Length: 255mm
Output Scan Angle: ±16°
