Smart Galvanometer Scanner for Medical and Scientific Applications - Compact system for highest precision and scanning speed
SCANLAB GmbH, market-leading OEM manufacturer of advanced laser scan systems, presents its latest offering in the galvanometer product range: the compact dynAXIS 421. The small sized galvo is especially suited to applications in the medical environment – from Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to microscopy, DNA-sequencing and other medical laser treatments. The superior motor design with analog or digital servo-control technology, together with ISO 9001-certified quality standards, guarantees highest reliability and extraordinary precision. Digital system monitoring and customizable feedback signals offer an appropriate solution for demanding biomedical and industrial customers.
Medical applications have special requirements to ensure patient comfort and safety. Therefore precision and long-term reliability are particularly important. Improved scan efficiency, resulting in shorter treatment times and higher quality imaging are especially beneficial in the biomedical sector.
The new compact galvanometer scanner dynAXIS 421 meets the market needs at a reasonable cost target. When combined with SCANLAB’s digital servo-controller, the galvo provides highest dynamics. The new optical position detector results in superior precision and stability. System status monitoring is a flexible feature which can be tailored to the application needs. Low heat generation and optimized thermal resistance ease the integration into handheld devices or complex medical and ophthalmic instruments.
Thanks to SCANLAB’s lean organization, lead times are not only shorter than market average, but are highly dependable. ‘Made in Germany’ proves highest quality standards and consistency across the entire product range. Experienced sales engineers and an application support team provide quick and detailed responses, and ustomization as needed.
The compact dynAXIS 421 may be purchased with either analog or digital servo-driver boards and a large variety of mirrors and coating options. Standard configurations are available now.

control expert will further strengthen the company’s market position in digital products and control solutions for the photonics industry.
Christian Sonner (40) is assuming the role of R&D director at SCANLAB, thereby continuing on the successful work of Norbert Petschik. Under his leadership, the R&D department and its around 70 employees will increasingly focus on highly integrated scan solutions.
Christian Sonner has extensive expertise in developing system solutions, and in his new role he will drive forward interdisciplinary collaboration at SCANLAB. “I’m very pleased we were able to gain Christian Sonner as our new R&D head and management board member. Over the past few years I’ve come to know him as a sharp thinker, accomplished technologist and empathetic manager. In view of our customers’ growing requirements for complex systems, he’s the optimal future-oriented appointee,” comments SCANLAB CEO Georg Hofner.
Since 2013, Christian Sonner had already been the company’s software development manager. Under his leadership, the innovative scan control solutions for precSYS and XL SCAN were developed. After earning an applied mathematics degree, he initially specialized in industrial robot controllers, focusing on functionality for redundant kinematics at prior employers such as Kuka.
