  • Patent number: 10414001
    Abstract: To provide a galvanometer scanner that increases reliability by reducing burden on a mechanism unit. A galvanometer scanner converts a command for machining position on a machining target to movement commands for a rotary motor, a rotary motor, and a direct drive mechanism. If the movement command for the direct drive mechanism contains a weak direct drive component depending on the movement command for the rotary motor, and falling within an amplitude range not exceeding a predetermined amplitude and within a frequency range not falling below a predetermined frequency, the galvanometer scanner removes the weak direct drive component from the movement command for the direct drive mechanism, and then outputs control signals corresponding to the movement commands for the rotary motors and the direct drive mechanism. The galvanometer scanner controls the rotary motors and the direct drive mechanism based on the control signals.
