The optical industry earns its money with technically demanding applications such as lasers for industrial and medical technology, measuring systems, glass fibres for fast Internet, microscopes, sensors or LED lights. Mirror wheel drives, such as those needed in optical measuring equipment, place particularly high demands on manufacturing precision. In some instances, very high speeds of up to 100,000 rpm are required. On the other hand, natural vibrations must be avoided as far as possible. To this end, SycoTec offers motors with air gap winding that guarantee virtually no cogging torque.
Railway measuring technology and train monitorin
Slipped loads pose a safety hazard in rail traffic. In order to identify failings and acute hazards involving rolling stock, a German research institute has developed laser scanners that record the geometrical shape of passing trains. Your mirror wheel drive comes from us and is specially tailored to the application, which thus achieves extremely high measuring rates for measuring the train. A three-dimensional image is created, which makes geometrically conspicuous features such as slipped or protruding loads visible and facilitates rapid intervention.
Laser direct exposure with high resolution
With laser direct imaging, LDI for short, a precisely focused laser beam hardens photosensitive materials. The process is used in areas such as the production of printed circuit boards and allows much higher resolutions than conventional imaging techniques. It leads to a significant increase in the efficiency and flexibility of the product and production process, which enables significant cost savings of up to 75%. High-performance drives from SycoTec are also frequently used here to control the machines.
Optical inspection for top speeds
Where products require flawless coating or printing, very large quantities often have to be measured and evaluated in a short time for quality assurance purposes. Fully automatic, camera-based inspection systems have proven themselves ideal for this purpose. SycoTec mirror wheel drives ensure both rapid and time-saving alignment and the required positioning precision. An inspection of up to 1,500 m of strip material per minute in real time is no problem.
