About This Webinar
A common misconception is that high throughput infers higher speeds, but the real limitations are caused by higher accelerations. This webinar will cover 1) problems that arise in fixed-beam positioning (i.e., moving load) where the large moving mass of a system becomes a difficult problem to solve, and 2) how these challenges may be overcome with hybrid stage-scanner system architectures.

You will learn:
This webinar will provide insight into most dominant performance limitations in modern dynamic laser machining applications. You will also learn the advantages of using a galvo — including increased performance rates — made possible through the reduction of moving mass and increased frequency response. The presenter will offer an analysis of present error reductions and overall/systemic errors in these hybrid systems.

About the presenter:
Scott Schmidt is an applications engineering manager at Aerotech Inc., where he has gained 17 years of experience with advanced laser processing and micromachining. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Penn State University and a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Massachusetts.
