Glass Processing

Scaling-up Glass Processing with Beam-shaping

By generating a Bessel beam with a reflective axicon the Bessel profile is closer to theory and more stable at high power and energy. This enables to process faster (x5 through a scanner) and to drill smaller channel (/2 compared to standard axicon, which meant 107nm channels drilling). Besides tuned Bessel profile enables sharp transition while drilling.

CANUNDA-AXICON

With increasing demands for screen quality, the improvement of glass processes is crucial. Reflective bessel’s beams allow us to sculpt glass with a very high precision (-20% ablate coating width) and faster (X5 Cutting speed) compared to refractive axicons.

The solution developed by Cailabs is CANUNDA-AXICON, a reflective, off-axis axicon.  The reflective design of this one-of-a-kind axicon is what sets it apart from conventional axicons. It can withstand higher energy pulses and higher average powers from the input laser, making it suitable for demanding material processing use. 

It can also be used to avoid many undesirable phenomena such as chromatic dispersion, chromatic aberrations and focus shifts, making it a perfect, stable, and robust solution to produce Bessel beams with Ultra-Short Pulse lasers for industrial glass processing.

This remarkable stability allows CANUNDA-AXICON to be compatible with standard industry scanners. Besides CANUNDA-AXICON-Z-FLAT module generates a flat (over the propagation) Bessel beam with sharp (x3 sharper) transition length with an increased homogeneity (x1.5)

We offer customized, flexible solutions to suit a variety of glass processing requirements (different bessel sizes…). Each of our products is meticulously tailored to your industrial environment (F-Theta, scanner, microscope), offering seamless compatibility with all types of pulse laser.
