XL SCAN

Maximize Throughput of Large Field Laser Processing

Traditional laser processing of large workpieces with galvo scanners and motion stages involves a step and scan approach, which is subject to stitching errors and limited throughput. To achieve higher throughput and accuracy, ACS Motion Control Ltd. and SCANLAB GmbH jointly developed XL SCAN, a solution that fully synchronizes the control of galvo scanner(s) and motion stages. XL SCAN provides laser processing OEM machine builders the highest precision large format processing solution in the market.
