SCANahead is an innovative control technology, where the dynamic potential of the galvos is fully utilized. Scan systems with SCANahead control always accelerate to the maximum, in contrast to systems with conventional control. This reduces acceleration time significantly and increases the productivity. In addition, sharper corners can be scanned and necking effects can be avoided.

SCANahead is only available in connection with certain scan systems and RTC control boards. It is usually also in combination with XLSCAN and SCANmotionControl available.
