Accudyne receives USDC award for laser-based glass-cutting system

The US Display Consortium (San Jose, CA) has awarded Accudyne (Palm Bay, FL) $2.25 million in funding for the development of a laser-based glass-separation system. The CO2 laser cutting system is applicable to all flat-panel-display (FPD) technologies, allowing FPD manufacturers to process substrates u¥to 1 m2 of both single and laminated sheets of glass. The system will improve the speed, accuracy, and edge strength over current mechanical scribe and break methods, which can produce edge mi

The system will improve the speed, accuracy, and edge strength over current mechanical scribe and break methods, which can produce edge microcracks that can enlarge with heat or stress, as well as unwanted particulates. Accudyne will provide the other half of the $4.5 million total development effort.
