D-20 XY galvanometer scan head

Nutfield Technology has released its latest product, the D-20 XY galvanometer scan head. A fully digital, encoder-based scan head, the D-20 is ideal for applications requiring the highest levels of accuracy as well as stability.

Because the D-20 XY is a high-resolution, encoder-based scan head, it is extremely accurate and is able to operate in areas where insensitivity to environmental factors is essential. This makes it ideal for use in areas such as micromachining, laser drilling, laser welding, laser ablation, and precision scribing.
