Glass wafers made of specialty glass materials now also available within 48h–Express Service
The manufacturing and delivery of glass wafers made of various specialty glass materials is now possible based on a CNC-precision-glass-cut edge configuration within our 48h-Express Optics Service. For most materials you are free to define the diameter of the wafers up to 300 mm or 12" and you can define whether the wafers should be just round or whether they should have a SEMI-standard-flat. Available are several different alkali-free glass materials as well as borosilicate glass, BK7, UV-grade quartz glass, and several more economically priced glass options. more...

New Thin Glass Processing Capabilities within our 48h-Express Service
We have developed a new method to process thin glass at 50 µm thickness. This process allows a more efficient processing of such extremely thin and fragile glass parts. Up to now we limited the possible dimensions of parts at only 50 microns glass thickness to fixed sizes because the production yield of custom dimensions was extremely low. By a newly developed CNC-machine we can now make nearly any square or rectangle custom dimension at 50µm glass thickness and at high precision even within our 48h-Service. Beginning with our new ultra thin glass product AS 87 eco at 50 µm thickness the service is available from today on.

NEW! Alkali free thin glass AF 32® eco: A thin glass that matches to the CTE of silicon!
AF 32® eco is alkali free in synthesis and has a CTE of 3,2 x 10-6 which is close to the one of silicon. The glass is therefore suitable for semiconductor applications. It is available at 0,1 mm - 0,5 mm thickness and offers a high surface quality, flatness, and optical transmission as well as a low micro roughness. more...
