Perfect cuts

The demand for brittle materials industrial use continues to grow, raising new challenges and requirements for precision laser dicing. Addressing market needs Workshop of Photonics (WOP) developed a unique state-of-the-art glass and sapphire dicing technology to increase process yield and efficiency.

It offers ultra-high precision and quality on tempered glass, non-tempered glass, sapphire, and other brittle materials. Also small feature sizes, and high aspect ratios unachievable with alternative technologies.

Module advantages:

  • Compatible with various femtosecond lasers
  • Outperforms other glass-cutting methods
  • Patented technology
  • Easy to integrate
