Description

Engineered by Cambridge Technology, our ball bearing based polygon scanners provide a low-cost high precision raster scanner. Our ball bearing based polygon scanner is ideal for applications requiring less than 20,000 RPM which demand high load capacity and/or encoder feedback at a reasonable cost point. These scanners feature speeds ranging from 300 to 20,000 RPM available depending on polygon size, facet count, and scanner type.
