Using current technologies, generally, galvanometric mirrors provide more linear and faster scanning speeds compared to two-axis tilt mirrors.
Therefore, the mirrors can perform high-speed deflection around an axis of rotation of the galvanometric scanning motor.

The Sinterstation 2000--SLS machine drives the laser beam using the two mirrors galvanometric system, illustrated in figure 1.
2, a scheme of the laser cleaning process is illustrated: a focalized laser beam, moved through two galvanometric mirrors, is used to machine a solid bulk, following one or more time predetermined patterns (typically made of parallel lines).
The laser beam was moved by two galvanometric mirrors placed in the head, developed by LASIT, and then focused by a flat lens by LINOS onto the surface of the CFRP plate.
