    Default DT 40 Pro set or......

    I have had the wide move 9024 scanner set for a couple of years now. I have tuned on these things too long and too many times. I am just not going to get them to do great text with nice square corners. Looking at ZOOF's logo....I couldn't get it that nice and crisp. I realised that these would not be ...well....what I wanted in some future time. Now it is approaching fast. Any suggestions? I have seen good reports on the DT sets. Can't do the big Cambridge thing at all. Just looking for better text and graphic definitions. In the mean time I will look into some of the specs on different scan sets. Waiting to see how much damage the tax man is going to do. It may depleat savings to a point where it will just have to wait a while.

    Hi MechEng3,

    My first choice for scanners is Cambridge. But if you can't afford Cambridge, then the DT-40 PRO is not a bad choice. From what I can tell, the scanner amp is nearly identical (if not identical) to the Cambridge SMT amp design (which is a good thing because, even though it's a copy, it's a copy of something that is really good...). The scanner itself is basically a copy of the original (circa 1992) 6800, with some differences. There are things about the DT-40 that I don't like, but Jian is constantly improving them.

    I will soon be receiving some scanners, amps, and other "parts" from PR-Laser. They are sending me a complete kit for evaluation, including internal parts (so I don't have to destroy a scanner to test the internal parts). I am not sure if it is the case right now, but my intuition is that PR should be the best scanner manufacturer in China. I say this because the principal (Bill Lu) worked for 10 years in what was essentially the Chinese division of General Scanning. I keep saying that scanners is a business of "details" and you really can't get the details just by copying what other people have done from the outside in. The details must come from trade secrets which Bill was no doubt privy to. Also, Bill Lu is engineering oriented and as far as I can remember, he received his Masters degree. I will let you know how the testing goes...

    Best regards,

    William Benner

    It looks as if they have a model BL-50. 50 kpps? Would be nice to get english info on these. Mirrors show >90% reflection @45 Deg. Nice if it was a better mirror....say >97%. It would be a pain in the a$$ to make an acurate fixture to just do one set of mirrors....swapping out theirs for real high quality units. Wonder what kind of price they have.....always in the dark on the money side of manu's prices. They seem to have a strange way of offering prices via direct contact. Maybe someone will invite them here for the lowdown on what they have to offer........

    Yep, they are Raytrack 35 plus from JMlasers. The galvos are the DT40 pros but the driver board is different. Set comes tuned to 35K ilda.

    mirror quality isn't the greatest(~90%)

    Apart from that, we haven't had any issues in our hire lasers, and we have nearly 10 sets in use..
