Laser Cutting of Glass
Wide Processing Spectrum
Cutting glass with conventional, mechanical methods like diamond scribing and breaking comes with significant drawbacks due to relatively low scribing quality (micro-cracks, chipping) and accuracy. Typically, a number of additional time-consuming processing steps like grinding, masking and etching are necessary to remove the damage that had been introduced by mechanical processes, as well as to eventually achieve the required tolerance of the parts outer dimensions.
By using a laser for the glass-cutting process, before mentioned disadvantages can be avoided. Depending on the composition and the requirements e.g. concerning the cutting edge quality, we offer different lasers for glass-cutting.
When producing sensitive components which often require the cutting of flexible thin-glass or light and high-strength glass e.g. within the electronic industry.
