SuperSpeed – How It Works
When a laser platform is equipped with two CO2 lasers of the same power, the combining optics result in one S-polarised beam and the other P-polarised. The SuperSpeed attachment uses this difference in polarization to independently control the focusing location of each laser.
Both the S- and P-polarized laser beams are on at the same time. Each beam takes a different path, but comes to a focus at the same location. This is the configuration of SuperSpeed in vector mode.
SuperSpeed rotates the optical elements to angle the beams relative to one another. This causes each beam to focus to a slightly different location within the processing area. The more the optical elements rotate, the larger the separation between focusing locations. This is the configuration of SuperSpeed in raster mode.
