Contour 3-Axis Scan Head


High Bandwidth for Marking on Contoured Surfaces

 

Nutfield Tech's Contour 3-Axis Scan HeadNutfield Technology’s Contour 3-Axis Scan Head is a compact scanning solution designed to offer 3-axis capability at cost comparable to 2-axis systems. The Contour includes a high bandwidth Z axis mechanism for marking on highly contoured surfaces. The fully packaged design allows for easy integration into workstations and assembly lines.

The Contour 3-Axis Scan Head Series is designed to operate seamlessly with Nutfield Technology’s WaveRunner Laser Scan Control Software and Pipeline or Surfboard Laser Scan Controller Hardware.

Nutfield Technology’s 3-Axis solutions are designed to deliver large field sizes without the use of large scanning lenses, XY tables, or gantries. Our technology delivers better field-size/spot-size ratios than those provided by standard f-theta scanning lenses. The integrated design incorporates Nutfield Technology’s advanced OPD (optical position detector) galvanometer technology to offer superior bandwidth, accuracy, and flexibility in 3-axis technology.
