Jenoptik to Supply US with New Laser Processing System
Nov 2011
JENA, Germany, Nov. 30, 2011 — The Lasers & Material Processing Div. of Jenoptik will supply US plants with laser processing systems used in a new application to fabricate high-tech glass.

High-tech glass is used for manufacturing smart windows that can be electronically adjusted to external lighting conditions, resulting in a significant reduction in energy consumption levels.

Similar to thin-film solar cells, high-tech glass consists of a number of extremely thin films, which are applied onto the glass. After each application, the films — only a few microns thin — are structured with high precision. A specially adapted technology is deployed for each structuring process.

Jenoptik has supplied the laser processing systems for thin-film solar cell manufacturing since 2007. The company partnered with Bystronic glass, a provider of glass processing services, machinery, plants and systems, to develop the new application. The two companies have worked together since 2008.
