Three industrial laser companies have allied to bring new glass-cutting technology to market. InnoLas Systems of Krailing, Germany, has licensed process technology developed by the Portland, Ore.-based FiLaser and will use ultrashort-pulse lasers produced exclusively for InnoLas by Lumera Laser of Kaiserlautern, Germany. The system will be available exclusively through InnoLas. FiLaser’s filament-cutting technology uses ultrashort laser pulses that cut brittle materials via plasma dissociation. Filament-cut glass is shown here.
