Aerotech Honored by 2022 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards

PITTSBURGH, September 20, 2022 – Aerotech Inc., a global leader in precision motion control and automation, announced today that its AGV-XPO High-Dynamic Laser Scan Head was recognized among the best by the 2022 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards. An esteemed panel of judges from the optics and photonics community recognized Aerotech Inc. as a Bronze honoree.


“On behalf of the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Aerotech Inc. on their Bronze level honoree status,” said Laser Focus Word Editor-in-Chief Peter Fretty. “This competitive program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the photonics community this year.”

About the AGV-XPO High-Dynamic Laser Scan Head

The AGV-XPO premier two-axis laser scan head helps to minimize the tradeoff between speed and precision. Its low-inertia, high-efficiency motors enable rapid acceleration profiles, while ultra-high resolution position feedback and optimized structural dynamics provide excellent part-profile tracking with minimal following error.


High-volume manufacturing applications such as glass cutting, electronic component cutting/drilling, battery foil production and many others significantly benefit from the AGV-XPO’s high dynamic performance, near-zero tracking error and low noise floor, which result in a higher return on investment for customers making parts and higher performance throughput for equipment manufacturers.


“The AGV-XPO High-Dynamic Laser Scan Head is a two-axis laser scanner solution unlike any other on the market,” said Bryan Germann, Laser Processing Product Manager at Aerotech. “This product enables our customers to achieve the highest laser trajectory accuracy and cutting speeds, even at very large focal lengths with small spot sizes.”
