3D-XB 3-Axis Scan Head - Great for Flat Fields/Processes 3D Surfaces

The FARO® 3D-XB Scan Head is designed to deliver large field sizes (from 150 mm to 2,000 mm), without the use of f-theta lenses, XY tables or gantries. This 3-axis technology provides better field-size/spot-size ratios than those of standard f-theta scanning lenses.

With the 3D-XB Scan Head, spot sizes as small as 20 μm and scan fields as large as 2 m x 2 m are achievable. The ability to vary the field and spot size offers application flexibility which makes the 3D-XB ideally suited for process development and job shop settings. The dynamic lens translator continuously adjusts the focus distance to produce a flat or contoured field. Various field and spot size combinations can be selected simply by turning a knob to adjust the working distance.

The accurate, high performance 3D-XB is used for optical scanning in XY and XYZ applications with a variety of laser wavelengths and is a flexible tool ideal for most laser applications.
