CNC-precision-cut glass wafers made of specialty glass materials now 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. You are free to define the diameter of the wafers up to 300 mm or 12" for most materials 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 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 that allows a better and more effective manufacturing of parts made of such extremely thin and fragile glass. So far, we limited the possible dimensions of parts at only 50 microns glass thickness to some fixed sizes, because the production yield of custom dimensions was very low. By a newly developed machine and process, 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.
