Laser Cutting Display and Strengthened Glass and Glass Substrates
Corning Laser Technologies' laser cutting processes employ ultra-short laser pulses in the picosecond range that cut glass, utilizing nonlinear processes. This ensures a low as cut edge roughness, increased cut bend strength, and a higher throughput. Corning’s laser glass cutting thus enables superb as cut quality, maximum output and yield in high volume production of touchscreen displays for smart phones, tablet PCs and other consumer products.
With an as cut edge roughness at < 2µm, in most cases the cut glass can be used for subsequent processing without additional intermediate steps for time and cost consuming post-processing. Glass pieces cut with Corning Laser Technologies' unique laser glass cutting process have superior break strength behavior, compared to items cut by other laser methods and conventional mechanical glass cutting processes.
