How to Tune Servo Systems: Force Control

About the Webinar Among the most troubling tasks in machine building can be tuning the servo system to meet or exceed the performance specification. Invariably, we have all sat at the machine and asked ourselves, “What three numbers should I put in this proportional-integrated-derivative (PID) controller?” However, when tuning, it is not always about the…

Dynamic Error Reduction via Galvo Compensation

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…

How to Manage Thermal Effects in Precision Scanning Systems

About the Webinar High-precision laser scanning systems incorporating galvanometers or galvo scanners have become increasingly popular for laser micromachining and additive manufacturing applications. With their high bandwidth, galvo scanners enable faster processing compared to traditional servo stage configurations. To minimize distortions when using galvo scanners, it is critical to mitigate system heating. Even slowly changing…

Cylindrical Laser Processing of Medical Devices

About the Webinar Laser processing has been used for decades to manufacture tubular medical devices, such as stents, valves, and vascular grafts. However, achieving the precision that is necessary for high-volume production is challenging. Driven by growth in minimally invasive surgeries and a desire to reach further into the body, devices continue to get smaller…
