The LightningTM II scan heads offer the highest speed and accuracy, ideal for advanced industrial and electronics applications such as via-hole drilling, additive manufacturing, and micromachining. The LXP model is optimized for high-speed marking, coding, and texturing. Our all-purpose ProSeries scan heads are built on our proprietary, field-proven analog technology and are best suited for applications such as high accuracy marking, scribing, patterning and engraving. Large aperture models are available for plastic welding, micromachining, drilling, and more. All of our scan heads are designed and optimized to operate in conjunction with Cambridge Technology controllers and software.
