(Bohemia, NY – Mar. 7, 2014) – Global demand for mobile devices is driving the need to more efficiently cut tempered glasses. Photonics Industries’ novel RGH Series ps lasers dramatically reduce the takt time to full cut tempered glass. In the following video link, a Photonics Industries RGH-1064-30 RGH ps laser full cuts 0.7mmt glass tempered with a 40um DOL:


with small enough cracks (<3um chip) and sufficient strength (150~200 MPa) to eliminate the post laser grinding/polishing step.

With glass cutting, the user desires to slow the rep rate down around the curved cut sections, but increase it during the straight cut sections. The advantage of the Photonics Industries RGH Series ps lasers is the ability to vary the pulse repetition rate (i.e., prf) “on the fly” while processing. Other ps laser manufacturers have fixed rep rates and the user cannot dynamically vary the rep rate.
