Nmark AGV-HPO data sheet - .PDF file.

Aerotech has introduced the AGV-HPO high-accuracy, open-frame, thermally stable galvo scanner, which provides resolution of more than 24 bits when used with the company’s Nmark CLS controller. It is suitable for complex, high-density laser machining and high-throughput applications.

The feedback sensors on the AGV-HPO scanner systems can be calibrated down to single-digit, micron-level accuracy over the field of view.

With the low thermal gain drift performance of the position transducers, complex, high-density laser machining applications will maintain consistent micron-level feature placement accuracy over the lifetime of the process. Likewise, high-throughput applications will maintain consistent part-to-part quality without having to re-calibrate between parts.

The AGV-HPO control connections consist of two 300mm cables terminated in 25-pin D-style connectors. The cables can be oriented in any direction to ensure there is no interference with beam delivery. The AGV-HPO is also available with right-side and left-side input apertures for ‘mirror image’ machine builds or side-by-side scanner mounting with a single laser beam split to source both scanners.

The location of the AGV-HPO mirrors can be captured and analysed in real time. With direct access to the positions of the scanner, the user no longer has to program delay parameters to compensate for lag and tracking errors in the servo system. The process can be optimised prior to marking the part, saving time and reducing material waste. The state of the laser can also be controlled based on in-position and velocity criteria, further reducing programming complexity.
