New Laser Control Techniques for 3D Metal Printing, Welding, Engraving and Micromachining

Laser control is required for many manufacturing processes such as cutting, drilling, welding, etching, engraving and ablation. Fine laser control is needed for powder bed fusion (PBF) and for directed metal deposition (DMD). Lasers are used for material altering processes such as annealing and quenching for metals, and modifying impedance in semiconductors. Continuous Wave (CW)…

Coordinating Multiple Galvo Scanners and XYZ Stages using Infinite Field of View (IFOV)

Multiple Galvo Scanners & IFOV in Action Polaris Motion has extended its infinite field of view (IFOV) technology to handle multiple Galvo scanners and stages. Multiple Galvo scanners can now share common stage axes or they can use independent stages. This offers our customers great flexibility when designing their machines to handle mass manufacturing requirements…

Infinite Field of View (IFOV)

Step and scan has some drawbacks. For one, continual starting and stopping may decrease the speed of production. Second, an inaccurate alignment between scanning areas may lead to unacceptable “stitching errors.” Third, complex part programming is required, with separate part programs for stage motion and Galvo motion. Managing the laser trigger with respect to actual…
