Drilling and Milling with a Laser?

From wafer-thin glass to glass blocks more than 100 mm thick, you can drill and mill all thicknesses with the laser. Process glass cleaner from now on!

The laser process of c-cut offers several advantages compared to the classical one, because no force is transferred to the glass and no heat is released. It is practically a cold process, that only leaves behind a small amount of glass dust that is simply extracted at the processing point.

But what is actually the difference in the process when drilling or milling glass?

Edit any imaginable shape in glass

Drilling

Thanks to a patented process, any conceivable shape (including shapes previously thought impossible) can now be created in glass with the help of a cericom laser machine. This is because the laser offers the advantage that it is completely free in its movement and can drill into the glass without contact and without the coolant that would otherwise be required – with the highest accuracy.

The cut edge that results is only 100 micrometers wide, extremely precise and free of microcracks. Whether the glass is only 0.5 mm or 20 mm thick is irrelevant. Holes from 0.2 to 20 mm and more are no problem for our machines.

The cericom laser machines offer an essential advantage in production: the process is economical and time-saving, the machine works up to the highest quality standards, and the product is reproduceable at all times. For industrial use, these are elementary key factors for the profitability of such an investment.

Milling

When milling glass using the patented cericom process, the laser beam is guided at high speed over the underside of the glass and the glass material is removed by vaporization or pulverization.

The high flexibility of the laser beam enables rapid movement of the laser focus in all directions. As a result, it is now possible to realize complex shapes with high precision and without undesirable subsurface damages to the glass.
