Scanlab expands SCANcube product family

Share this on social media:

Scanlab presents a new scan system, the SCANcube IV, which offers optional read-back functions for process monitoring.

Compared to the SCANcube III, the system linearity has been improved by 30 per cent. The new housing design is both visually appealing and a functional element of the optimised heat management concept. With specific tunings, the new scan head can be optimally configured for various customer needs. One thing that remains unchanged in the new scan head generation is its outstanding price-performance ratio.

The requirements on a scan system can vary hugely depending on the laser machining process in which it is to be used. Laser marking or laser engraving processes, for instance, have very different requirements in terms of positioning speed or tracking errors compared to the requirements of processes in additive manufacturing (3D printing). To take these differences into account while still offering a flexible, cost-effective solution, Scanlab presents the latest generation of their successful SCANcube product family.

The new SCANcube IV can be perfectly configured for the required application using different tuning and mirror variants. In combination with an RTC control board, optional read-back functions for system monitoring and diagnostics are now available. This means that the actual position, temperature and other status values can be queried reliably during operation.

The system linearity, which has been improved by 30 per cent compared to its predecessor the SCANcube III, makes calibration easier and enables more precise processing results. What's more, the new elegant, dust-tight housing provides optimised heat management and ensures that the system always keeps a ‘cool head’, even during demanding applications. 

At the time of its market launch, the SCANcube IV is available to order immediately with a 10mm or 14mm aperture.
