Based on an existing process, the system components required for the automated process are identified. On this basis, the staff of the /en/departments/technologiesfornon-metals/glass designs the system and develops the following subcomponents:

• Beam guidance
• Processing head
• Process monitoring unit (e.g. pyrometer or thermal camera)
• Feed or handling systems
• Laser safety equipment

Furthermore, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) drafts and develops the process control software.
