The screw can therefore be made to rotate. Much like ferrofluids , MR fluids respond to changes in magnetic field strength. The downside is that you’ll have to drive them with accurate voltage outputs, but PWM off the Arduino will work for medium speeds like you’re getting with the servos. Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum. The company produced several types of meters along with transformers and transducers known for their portability and accuracy. Edited 1 time s.

PS – how easy is it to focus a laser spot to better than 30um? In particularly the finishing of precise mirrors and lens used in semiconductor and astronomical applications. Become a member to follow this project and never miss any updates.
How much current is needed for the galvos? You’ll be limited in resolution, but with microstepping, it just might work!
Motion caused by a stick-slip motor When extending slowing a jaw rotates a screw, but if the piezo stack is compressed quickly the screw will not return. To gauge the motion of a buzzer I recently attempted to drive one with a volt piezo driver, this resulted in a total deflection of around 0. When we’d drive galvo motors from the DAC-audio-ports of the Duet, would we need a stereo amplifier? Unlike other instruments of the day, a mirror galvanometer could clearly show minute current variations by translating tiny movements of the mirror into large movements of the light reflected off of the mirror.
The simple graphics were actually pretty hard to create, and with that in mind, [standupmaths] decided to take a close look at the vector display of Asteroids and try to recreate it using a laser. However, piezos can move quickly flexing thousands of times a second. The company produced several types of meters along with transformers and transducers known for their portability and accuracy.
First, let me say that using mirrors is a step in the right direction compared to some projects we see here! Obviously impossible using a CO2 laser; but possible for near-IR diode lasers perhaps? Arduino Controlled Using an Arduino and a pair of servos to create a laser show on a sheet of luminous vinyl.

Without galvos, and on a tight budget, [Vitaliy Mosesov] decided that instead of downgrading the quality, he would seek an entirely different solution: While magnetic aduino operate through the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields, electrostatic motors exploit the attraction and repulsion of electric change to produce motion.
They’re a lot faster and more accurate, but they just don’t have much torque like steppers or servos. Sometimes though you need high precision over a larger range of travel.
But look into “real” galvos.
Using an Arduino and a pair of servos to create a laser show on a sheet of luminous vinyl. After that, all that was needed to make it draw some shapes was a laser and a 3D printed fixture to hold everything in the right alignment. Unlike piezos they require relatively low voltages for operation and have found niche applications. Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum. The poster-boy application of piezo actuators is perhaps the scanning probe microscope.
Apply a voltage to a piezoelectric material and it will move, as simple as that.
One of the cooler applications however is the mirror galvanometer. GRBL only works with stepper motors. However much like piezos it can also be used for high precision motion. I’ll have a go with he stepper motors next as they are here on my bench but ultimately I’d like to try galvos. We arfuino like the fact that these boxes are cheap enough that you can build three with different color lasers.
Laser + Galvanometer Control
You are about to report the project ” Laser Galvo: And the LEGS and similar Inchworm actuator allows relatively quick, high force, and high resolution motion. To be fair, [Seb Lee-Delisle] does all the heavy lifting here, with [standupmaths] providing context on the history and mathematics of the original vector display.
Electrostatic motors While magnetic motors operate through the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields, gavlo motors exploit the attraction and repulsion of electric gavlo to produce motion.
