About the Webinar

A common misconception is that high throughput implies higher speeds, but the real factor that impacts throughput is higher accelerations. This webinar will cover 1) problems that arise in fixed-beam positioning (i.e., moving load) where the large moving mass of a system becomes a difficult problem to solve and 2) how these challenges may be overcome with hybrid stage-scanner system architectures.


Learning Objectives

This webinar will provide insight into most dominant performance limitations in modern dynamic laser machining applications. You will also learn the advantages of using a galvo — including increased performance rates — made possible through the reduction of moving mass and increased frequency response. The presenter will offer an analysis of present error reductions and overall/systemic errors in these hybrid systems.


Who Should Attend

  • Automation equipment engineers responsible for developing custom in-house tools for applications where off-the-shelf equipment isn’t adequate
  • Anyone responsible for sourcing outside OEM equipment or who works with custom machine providers for laser processing

Turn your precision positioning automation challenges into process success.
