Highly-dynamic scanner mirrors easier to control

Press release (Nr. V) - Fraunhofer IWS / April 18, 2016

For a flexible and a rapid material laser processing highly-dynamic galvanometer mirrors are used similarly as in laser shows. These are supposed to reach prefera-bly high velocities and accelerations and to be rapidly controllable. With a special electronic system developed by the Fraunhofer Institute IWS Dresden, the so called module ESL2-100, it is possible to control the galvanometer directly by the machine control system. This allows a holistic interlinking to the main control system, which simplifies considerably the control procedure. In addition, for the implementation of a laser process a plurality of scanner mirrors can be applied simultaneously.
