Sight glasses (laser structured)

Our laser processing capabilities enable us to structure and treat not only tubes, but also the surface of flat glass. Thereby, small segments can be seperated from thin substrates or the surface can be structured and marked. Also, the insertion of little holes into the substrates with hole diameters from 0,1 mm is possible. Our specialities include the inscribing of 2D barcodes and contour cutting via laser with quartz glass and borosilicate glass 3.3.

Materials
