The QuantumScan-10 (QS-10) launched by Nutfield Technology Inc. is a galvanometer that delivers state-of-the-art scanning speed and accuracy in a compact package. The device, for use with mirrors with 8- to 15-mm apertures, has increased-strength magnets that enable reduced package size. When combined with low-resistance, low-inductance coils, the instrument provides a 40% increase in spacing speed, with optimized thermal characteristics. A high-output position detector generates three times the output signal for a high signal-to-noise ratio. For more bandwidth and speed, patent-pending ceramic output shafts provide lower inertia and higher stiffness than steel. Applications include marking, display, fluorescence, imaging and microscopy.
