Precision Laser Scanning, is upping the speed limit of polygon scanners. 

For many years, 55,000 RPM was the maximum speed of polygon scanning.  Users had requirements to run faster but there were limits on how fast an air bearing motor carrying a practical sized polygon mirror could go.  Further, a 2.5 inch (64 mm) diameter polygon mirror at 55,000 RPM sounds like a siren as the facet tips travel at 520 MPH (840 KPH).  The high noise level makes it impractical to use in some office and medical environments.

Road RunnerTM 70,000 RPM Polygon Scanner shatters the old speed limit and does so with a whisper quiet design!  A sealed optical window keeps in the noise.  Sealing the mirror housing also keeps out contamination, prolonging the service life of the optic.  Rated for 200,000 Start/Stop cycles or 50,000 hours, the 70,000 RPM air bearing scanner is very long lasting. 

Biomedical applications include Optical Coherence Tomography, Microscopy, Swept Source, and Ophthalmology.  Industrial applications include Inspection and 3D Measurement.  ULTRAFAST lasers often require polygon speed.

The standard model Road RunnerTM 70,000 RPM Polygon Scanner has a 72 facet polygon with an inscribed diameter of 2.5 inches (64 mm) and is 0.25 inches (6.35mm) thick.  Custom models are available on request.
