Laser Etching with Scan Head Technology
Scan Head technology is a core piece of industrial lasers. The scan head is generally comprised of two axis. These axis are created with two very small and precise motors known as galvanometers. The motors are positioned adjacent to each other, with one in the X plane and one in the Y plane. They will rotate and move in conjunction with each other to point the laser beam down onto the laser marking field within a defined area (typically defined as an X/Y Cartesian coordinate system).
