Cambridge Technology Launches Digital Servo Driver
October 4, 2017
Cambridge Technology, a business unit of Novanta Corporation ("Novanta"), announced the launch of the DC3000 Plus, a new digital servo driver, adding to its product family of components and scan heads for laser beam steering.
The DC3000 Plus builds on the success of its predecessor, the DC3000, which applies digital state space controller technology to optimize speed in laser marking applications. With increased drive current and improved thermal management, the DC3000 Plus now offers higher marking speed and it accurately drives larger mirrors faster. These improvements expand the product line's capabilities in laser converting, micromachining, high power welding, and additive manufacturing applications.
"The new servo driver offers significant speed and performance advantages to our customers, including superior tracking performance and greater efficiency in high duty cycle applications," said Phil Martin, president, Cambridge Technology and Photonics Group President, Novanta. "Customers also benefit from the new self-calibration feature which streamlines integration of the DC3000 Plus into customers' systems and reduces machine downtime, simplifying service requirements."
