Wood Pecker/Eagle polygon scanners

Precision Laser Scanning is now offering standard model polygon scanners with apertures greater than 20mm with short lead time and at a low price.

The polygon scanners in the new Wood Pecker family target the material processing market with speeds of 400 to 4,000 rpm. The new Eagle Eye family of polygon scanners targets the imaging market with speeds of 1,000 to 10,000 rpm. Both models have a 21mm aperture. Additional standard models will be introduced on a regular basis to meet market demands.
