Scanlab has released the digital-encoder-based intelliSCAN 14 scan systems for integration into manufacturing tools. The intelliSCAN 14 is a completely digital scan head featuring a digital encoder for position feedback, iDRIVE-based digital control electronics and a 20-bit, SL2-100 control interface. An ideal choice for high-precision machining, the intelliSCAN 14 is designed for applications requiring scan head speed and precision approaching high-end XY stages. The exceptionally low drift of the intelliSCAN 14 enables tiling in highest precision applications, reducing the need of additional inspection or readjustment throughout the process. With a tracking error of only 130 µsec the intelliSCAN 14 rivals the fastest existing high-speed scan heads and allows highest processing speeds without burn-in effects.

PRESS RELEASE

SCANLAB announces first delivery of the intelliSCAN 14
SCANLAB has delivered the first production lot of digital-encoder-based intelliSCAN 14 scan systems for integration into manufacturing tools.

The intelliSCAN 14 is a completely digital scan head featuring a digital encoder for position feedback, iDRIVE-based digital control electronics and a 20-bit, SL2-100 control interface. An ideal choice for high precision machining, the intelliSCAN 14 has been designed for applications requiring scan head speed and precision approaching high-end XY stages.

The exceptionally low drift of the intelliSCAN 14 enables tiling in highest precision applications, reducing the need of additional inspection or re-adjustment throughout the process. The intelliSCAN 14 has no "visible" dither and features perfect line straightness achieved with very high 20-bit position resolution. With a tracking error of only 130 µsec the intelliSCAN 14 rivals the fastest existing high-speed scan heads and allows highest processing speeds without burn-in effects.

The intelliSCANde 14 is mechanically and electrically fully compatible to SCANLAB's existing hurrySCAN II 14 and intelliSCAN 14 scan head series and is available for a wide range of laser processing setups.

SCANLAB AG, Germany, is the worldwide leading and independent OEM-manufacturer of scan solutions for the deflection and positioning of laser beams in three dimensions. SCANLAB's high-performance galvanometer scanners, scan heads and scan systems are used worldwide for industrial laser material processing, as well as in medical and biomedical technology.
