Glass Group

  • Energy-effizient laser-based manufacturing processes for glass materials

  • Design and construction of laser systems for processing glass materials


In close cooperation with industry, the Glass Group develops laser-based joining, cutting and forming processes for glass components, such as glass tubes and flat glasses for chemical process equipment, solar thermics and medical technology.

Very important for the industry, too, and thus a work priority of the group are laser-based processes for surface treatment. In order to precisely prepare components in an automated way for the further use in displays, architectural glass or lamps, the LZH scientists develop decoating and structuring processes.
