LPKF Laser & Electronics has concluded a joint development agreement for a glass processing technology with a major global display enterprise.

The companies have agreed not to disclose details of the agreement.

The two firms seek to further optimise a specific solution enabling future display devices.

If the development is successfully completed, LPKF expects the technology to be widely used in various applications for the enterprise.

LPKF noted that the development is based on laser induced deep etching (LIDE) technology, which enables thin glass to be processed quickly, precisely and without any damage such as micro cracks.

This makes LIDE a fundamental technology for many microsystems technology applications, including flexible displays and semiconductors as well as microfluidics or MEMS fabrication, LPKF explained.
