    Default Where to get high performance scanners

    Hi Guys.
    Im going to build a old school laser system using a gassed argon laser as mentioned on another thread.
    im having problems finding a suitable scanning system.
    because my laser source is permanently on. No modulation. I get tracing lines on my graphics. A squiggly line returning back to the starting point of the drawing.
    I require a extra galvo which is called a Z blank. This works the same as modulation and provides the gaps in the scan for the graphics.
    Where can I get a fast scanning system with the extra z blanking?

    it's not just a third galvo. you need a retroreflecting blanking system like this.

    it would probably be easier just to pick up a pcaom. that way you would get intensity *and* color modulation from your argon.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.
