Infinite Field of View (IFOV) Animation

Aerotech’s Infinite Field of View (IFOV) is a unique and industry-leading solution for the synchronization of linear or rotary servo axes with laser scanners. IFOV produces significant throughput improvements and eliminates stitching errors and part quality issues due to overlapped and mismatched laser processing. By combining the high dynamic capabilities of galvo scanners with the travel range of servo stages, parts significantly larger than a scanner’s traditional field of view can be processed continuously with no need to stitch individual working areas together. Infinite Field of View improves processing quality as well as throughput on large parts. IFOV not only expands the working area for any galvo system beyond what is possible with optics alone, but it also removes the trade-offs between laser spot size and available working area by extending the FOV regardless of optic selection. As a result, the user is able to select the best optic configuration.
