Multiple Galvo Scanners & Infinite Field of View (IFOV) with a Single Motion Controller

Using a single motion controller, control multiple Galvo scanners using IFOV technology to make large parts having great detail. By making your process parallel, highest machining efficiencies are achieved. This new technology is ideal for high throughput laser micromachining and 3D printing applications.

 

Laser Etching a Vector Artwork File

Simply load a vector artwork file into our system and go. The part may be larger than the Galvo scanner field of view. Our motion control system coordinates the XYZ stage and the Galvo scanner automatically, for infinite field of view capability (IFOV)

 

Advanced Engraving of a JPEG File

Simply load a jpeg file into our system, set an engraving mode and go. The part may be larger than the Galvo scanner field of view. Our motion control system coordinates the XYZ stage and the Galvo scanner automatically, for infinite field of view capability (IFOV)

 

Collection of Video Clips Demonstrating Precision Laser Manufacturing

Advanced laser based manufacturing is made easy using a Polaris CNC motion control system. Everything you need is included from CAD/CAM software to controllers and drives. Coordinating the XYZ stage and Galvo scanner using Infinite field of view (IFOV) technology makes it easy to make large parts, much larger than the Galvo scanner field of view, without hassle.

 

F-Theta Lens Pillow-Barrel Distortion Correction using NURBS Surfaces

Stictching errors in both the X and Y directions are eliminated and sub-mircon accuracies are achieved using a combination of non uniform B spline surface (NURBS) corrections and infinite field of view (IFOV) technology.

 

Infinite Field of View (IFOV) Demonstration

This video demonstrates CNC numerical control with multi-axis coordination of stage motion and Galvoscanner motion. A pulsed laser is being synchronized simultaneously with the motion along the cutting path for accurate, smooth material removal. This technique is often called infinite field of view (IFOV) because the field of view of the Galvoscanner is being automatically extended, without the need for start/stop motion. Using a Polaris motion control system in this manner with F-theta lens correction also eliminates stitching error.
