The ultrashort pulse laser systems of PHOTON ENERGY GmbH are the ideal choice for laser processing of glass.
Heat induction into the glass is omitted due to the short laser pulses. The glass is not exposed to any thermal or mechanical stress and retains its stability.
Since its introduction in 2011, our CEPHEUS ultrashort pulse laser has raised the bar in the laser market. Combined with our laser marking machines it is the ideal plug-and-play solution for your corporation.
Our application lab supports and consults you with your different applications on glass: micromachining, cutting, drilling, engraving or inner glass marking.
The proven ultrashort pulse technology of our CEPHEUS laser beam source can also be utilized for cutting of surface hardened glass. The video shows the cutting of Gorilla glass by the CEPHEUS like it is used in smartphone displays.
With its large door, the Workstation is ideally suited for small to medium sized workpieces. It is an all-round talent and can be used for all laser processes. Because of its various interfaces, automation solutions can easily be implemented.
The Workstation L is an ergonomically designed workplace, which can be used for the laser processing of larger workpieces because of its spacious design.
Our experts can draw from years of experience in laser marking and micro machining. They have the know-how to implement and realize your processes. The Workstation XXL is equipped with up to six axis and can handle larger workpieces.
This technique enables laser markings very close to the material surface, without compromising it. Marking of highly transparent materials like quartz can be realized as well, even at high speeds.
The marking parameters for laser marking of glass depends on the glass type. Common window glass or lead crystal glass as well as various types of optical glass can be marked perfectly with the ultrashort pulse laser CEPHEUS.
Because there is no thermal impact of the ultrashort pulse laser, it is possible to create delicate micro structures, for example for lab-on-a-chip applications like shown in the picture above.
