HIPPO LASER GLASS PROCESSING SYSTEM
Laser glass processing is increasingly being utilized as various consumer electronics, such as television, mobile/smart phones, and GPS devices gain in popularity. Motivating factors include reduced cost through yield and device enhancement through laser-enabled processes.
Lasers are used to process differing glass types, ranging from low-cost soda lime glass to a variety of higher-quality borosilate glasses. Cutting requirements include basic straight line cutting/singulation as well as simple and complex geometric shapes. Process challenges include throughput, reduction of melt, and prevention of microcrack formation.
