Disc Laser Glass Cutting System to be on Display at glasstec 2006

H2B Photonics, a laser company for glass processing, and laser producer ROFIN will display multiple laser beam absorption (MLBA™) cutting technology for flat glass at glasstec 2006. The technology features volume absorption of the laser radiation in the glass, and not surface absorption as with CO2 laser radiation, according to a press release.

The release indicates that the system cuts glass from .2 mm thick to 24 mm thick in one step, without the need for subsequent breakage. One specific machine of this kind offered by the companies is the Turbocut™, which uses YAG lasers to cut tubular and hollow glass "efficiently and free of glass chips," according to the release.
