What Is F-theta Lens？
An f-theta lens, including telecentric f theta lens, is a type of lens used in laser marking, engraving, and scanning systems. The term 'f-theta' refers to the relationship between the focal length (f) and the angle (theta) of the laser beam as it scans across a flat plane. Unlike regular lenses that create a linear increase in distance with the angle, f-theta lenses produce a linear increase in distance for each unit of angle over a flat field.
The primary function of an f-theta scan lens is to ensure a consistent spot size and marking quality across the entire marking field. This is crucial in applications where precision and uniformity of laser marking or engraving are essential.
F-theta scan lenses are commonly used in laser systems for tasks such as marking barcodes, serial numbers, patterns, or intricate designs on materials like metals, plastics, and ceramics. The flat field of focus provided by these lenses allows for accurate and distortion-free laser marking over a specified area."
