Edge-rounding and removing burrs of glass parts with laser radiation

Post Time:Oct 12,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:41

The laser polishing process developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT has been a well known technique in metal and glass processing for several years now. It can be used not only for polishing surfaces, but also for rounding edges and for removing burrs e.g. split lines on parts formed by injection or compression molding. Rounding edges increases the stability of glass. Excess material protruding from the surface of injection or compression-molded parts can be removed so cleanly that it is no longer visible. At the 2012 glasstec international trade fair, which will take place in Düsseldorf from October 23 to 26, experts from Fraunhofer ILT will be explaining the process and displaying samples of glass parts whose edges were rounded with CO2 laser radiation.
