Hall A2, Booth 235

Aerotech will be displaying its new high-precision AGV-SPO galvo scanner, together with its IGM positioning system, which it will be showing for the first time.

The AGV-SPO single pivot-point galvanometer scanner provides an alternative to traditional two-mirror galvo scanners. It enables a larger field of view and reduced spot distortion for critical laser micromachining applications.

Combined with Aerotech's Integrated Granite Motion (IGM) positioning system, the AGV-SPO galvo scanner fully demonstrates its strengths.

The IGM positioning tables are much more rigid due to the combination of granite and directly attached axes. The dynamics are removed from the laser and transferred to these axes, increasing scan clock rates and throughput significantly.

In addition, IGM also makes better use of the laser specification. Since the guide rails are screwed directly onto the granite, IGM systems are smaller than conventional positioning solutions, which saves floor space in the laboratory or clean room environment. At the fair, the IGM laser unit will be shown as an encapsulated version, i.e. for applications such as laser cutting, when extremely fine dusts occur. 

Another highlight at the trade fair will be the introduction Aerotech’s new Automation1 Precision Machine and Motion Control Platform. The Automation1 platform combines the control of positioning systems and their components on a platform equipped with a new software-based motion controller. The platform controls drives for servo motors, galvo scan heads, piezoelectric actuators and various other devices. Drives are connected via the HyperWire motion bus, which offers high speed, low jitter and high bandwidth. The Automation1 hardware has built-in digital and analogue I/Os, allowing easy integration of complex motion and the associated control of process tools.
