Unlike flatbed laser machines, galvo lasers are not commonly used as stand-alone machines but are instead integrated with other processes in a production environment. They generally offer a number of features such as semi-automated work stations with round tables to further maximize production efficiency/capacity and reduce downtime occurring from loading and unloading.
Due to the compact structure of galvo laser machines, they can be easily integrated into production lines. Conveyor belts or other handling systems enable operators to process large quantities of parts in the shortest possible time.
