Multi-Axis Motion System for Laser Processing - EtherCat Motion Controller and Linear Motor Stages and Galvo Synchronization

POSTED 04/23/2021

The video shows a system Combing Galvo Motion and X-Y stage motion for high-speed laser processing of high-density structures over large areas. Such motion systems are used in laser drilling, processing, laser marking for electronics manufacturing, PCB, etc. Driven by an EtherCat-based motion controller and special software that can combine the galvo and linear motor X-Y stages, excellent results are achieved. Laser machining is even used in the pharma industry today.
