The SolarScribe is said to handle all PV/FPD scribing applications. The Series includes options such as mechanical or air bearings, multihead scan axes, Z and theta correction axes, and machine base/isolation systems. Fully digital architecture improves the current, velocity, and position servoloops. Multiblock look-ahead reduces dynamic errors while the position-based laser adjusts pulse frequency to match scribing speed.
