The problem of moving a laser bundle plays a role in many modern technologies. Currently, all companies in the world scan the bundle with a mirror.
Hexastorm instead uses a prism to scan a laser bundle. This disrupts many markets; 3D printing, PCB manufacturing, augmented reality glasses and
laser eye surgery. The current scanhead is targeted at 3D printing and PCB manufacturing. The plan it do adapt it to detect eye diseases, opthalmalgy.
The specifications are as follows; spot diameter is 25 micrometers, maximum scan speed is 20 m/s, wavelength is 405 nm and power is 0.3W.
The scanhead can be pre-ordered by interested clients.
