Digital Encoder Technology
SCANLAB offers galvanometer scanners equipped with analog position detectors, as well as versions with digital encoders.
Digital encoder products include the field-proven de-Encoders and the further-enhanced se-Encoders (SCANLAB encoders).
Special care has been taken to ensure that these digital encoders enhance positioning precision without compromising dynamics or mechanical dimensions. They offer highest dynamic performance with XY-stage precision, as well as comprehensive position feedback and diagnostics. They are particularly suitable for applications that demand the highest possible precision and throughput.
de-Encoders enable a positioning resolution of 19-20 bits, exceptionally low dither (electronic noise), best linearity and lowest drift.
Position detectors with se-Encoders (based on interferometric sensing) ensure outstanding resolution along with lowest drift and dither.
SCANLAB's patented, ultra-low-inertia design makes systems equipped with these se-Encoders (e.g. intelliSCANse10) among the fastest, most accurate scan heads on the market – even starting with apertures of 10 mm and up.
Lasers as Tools
By transforming lasers into universal tools, scanning solutions help to add functionality and value to materials. SCANLAB's broad palette of scanning solutions fulfills demands for higher speed, more precision, greater efficiency or improved environmental compatibility.
