The world's smartest polygon scanner

Unique functionality

Patented design and real-time data processing

Double reflection eliminates the fluctuations of the reflection point as a fundamental problem of polygon mirrors. In connection with a time marker and an extremely fast correction of manufacturing tolerances by an integrated FPGA (200 MHz) the polygon scanner system of MOEWE is extremely accurate.

• Patented special optical design for minimal distortion
• Patented real-time data processing through FPGA

For optimal results

Large clear aperture

The free aperture of 30 mm, which is extremely large for a compact polygon scanner with a mass of only 13 kg, allows the use of large laser beam diameters. Thus, very small focus diameters can be achieved. With a focal length of 270 mm, approx. 25 µm are obtained for a single-mode fiber laser in the NIR wavelength range at a scan length of 160 mm. Due to the large beam diameter and because all reflective surfaces only come into contact with moving beams, extremely high laser powers of > 5 kW can be deflected with the MOEWE polygon scanner. With a long focal length of 1,900 mm, scanning lengths of 1,500 mm can be achieved. The focus diameter is then still about 180 µm.

• Size: 30 mm
• Smallest focus spot diameter < 10 µm
• Suitable for high power lasers > 5 KW

Incredibly fast

Scanning speed > 1,000 m/s possible

The scanning speed of polygon scanners is about 30 times higher than that of galvo scanners. With a focal length of 420 mm our MOEWE polygon scanner system reaches a speed of 1,000 m/s at a line frequency of 1,300 Hz. Especially for raster processing, which is necessary anyway, and for continuous area irradiation, the benefit of a polygon scanner is obvious. With the increasing power of ultra-short pulse lasers, ultra-fast beam deflection with polygon scanners is useful to achieve the high productivity that such lasers allow, even at high quality. USP lasers with a single pulse frequency of > 10 MHz can still be precisely controlled with our device. In the laboratory the MOEWE polygon scanner system has already controlled a laser with  60 MHz. This leads to extremely fast machining processes.

• Significant time saving
• Efficient cost reduction

Unique MOEWE realtime synch-technology

In collaboration with Laserinstitut Hochschule Mittweida and our partner Edgewave GmbH, we were able to show for the first time, the increase of speed during laser processing, through the intelligent linking of polygon scanners. To do so, we invented and patented a special controlling system, having the scanners work perfectly in tune with each other.

Deutschlandstipendium (Student scholarship) 2022/ 2023

In 2022/2023 MOEWE will support another scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium) at University of Applied Sciences Mittweida. 1800 € are provided for support. The cooperation with the university is being strengthened and interest for MOEWE should be aroused to competent students.

Fusion Bionic and MOEWE initiate closer collaboration

Fusion Bionic, a spin-off from Fraunhofer IWS, is happy to announce the start of a strategic cooperation with MOEWE Optical Solutions GmbH, a leading manufacturer of polygon-based laser microprocessing systems.
Both companies are joining forces to enable ultra-high-speed systems for surface processing and functionalization.
