Polygon scan head

Lincoln Laser

HyperSCANTM from Lincoln Laser offers the accuracy of a galvo scan head at POLYGON speeds of hundreds of meters per second.

Developed for ULTRAFAST PS & FS lasers as well as high power lasers used in thin film,raster scan and micromachining at high removal rates with low surface roughness. HyperSCANTM can reduce manufacturing leadtimes as well as costs while optimizing systems' performance and reliability.

Lincoln Laser will demonstrate the polygon laser scanning head SPIE Photonics West 2015, February 10-12 in San Francisco, California.
