Scribing notches in ceramics
The Rofin-Lasag QCW fiber laser LFS has outstanding characteristics for carrying out the process of scribing / marking on the most diverse of materials. The single mode beam quality enables fine perforations with a diameter of up to 10µm and depth of up to 2mm. The scribe quality is constant up to a maximum average capacity of 150W.
Current areas of application for the scribe / notch technology are:
- Creation of a notch / perforation for initialization of the break for automobile components such as connecting rods or engine blocks.
- Creation of a defined notch / perforation for initialization of a break in dangerous situations (burst plate)
- Creation of a notch / perforation for the separation of brittle materials such as ceramics or crystals
