Compact polygon scanner for portable laser cleaning

Share this on social media:

Polygon scanners can scan at hundreds of meters / second and have a high laser damage threshold which makes them ideal for high speed laser cleaning. 

The new Gecko-5-HP1 is the first compact polygon scanner designed for high power laser cleaning.  Its solid aluminum polygon has excellent heat dissipation and its dielectric coating is highly reflective at 1064 nm.  It is ideal for laser cleaning with hand held and robotic arm systems.  It will also find use in high speed assembly line laser cleaning. 

Gecko-5-HP1 has an 8.5 mm aperture, an 80 x 120 mm footprint and can scan a KW class laser at hundreds of meters per second. 

Precision Laser Scanning offers support electronics to make it easy for OEMs and System Integrators to implement polygon scanners in all types of material processing, inspection and LIDAR applications.
