For Industrial Laser ScanningBARRINGTON, N.J., April 14, 2008 -- Edmund Optics has introduced a line of TechSpec f-Theta scanning lenses designed to optimize the laser scanning process. These lenses are optimized for use with either Nd:YAG lasers operating at 1064 nm or CO2 lasers operating at 10.6 µm.
Most commonly used in high-end laser scanning and printing applications, f-Theta lenses are also widely used for laser marking, engraving and cutting systems. In scanning systems incorporating galvanometers, the laser beam may propagate at varying angles relative to the optical axis causing distortion, Edmund Optics said. f-Theta lenses are designed to correct this distortion, providing a flat field at the image plane.
"We are always looking to extend our market reach by offering high quality products that complement our existing product lines," said Amr Khalil, product line manager.
The TechSpec f-Theta scanning lenses are available at a range of focal lengths varying from 100 to more than 250 mm, which can scan fields as large as 175 x 175 mm, the company said. The Nd:YAG lens incorporates three elements with a highly efficient antireflective coating to provide optimal resolution and throughput; the CO2 lens is a single-element design. All lenses are provided with industry-standard M85 threading, which eases mounting and retrofitting on OEM equipment, the company said.
