Motion Control for Laser Machining – Linear Stage and Galvo Synchronization | PI

The processing of high-density structures over large areas such as laser drilling or laser marking of PCBs requires solutions that provide high precision and high throughput.


The combination of multi-axis positioning systems with a highly dynamic galvanometer scanner can address the needs of industrial production. syncAXIS’s simultaneous control of the PI XY stages and of the excelliSCAN galvanometer scan system, the so called XL SCAN method, allows continuous operation over large areas, therefore avoiding idle time and eliminating stitching errors. The ability to extend the field of view by the travel ranges of the stages has the advantage that the optics can be fixed and maintained in terms of accuracy, spot size and performance.
