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
