A new machining concept for the laser structuring process of OLED manufacturing has been developed by 3D-Micromac.
The concept for selective laser structuring is based on the company's microSTRUCT workstation. The integration of an ultra short pulsed laser guarantees a gentle structuring of the OLED anode layer without material damage at substrate level. A highlight is the processing of variable and scalable substrate sizes accomplished by innovative software controlled machining concepts that achieves a structuring speed of 1.5 meters per second or higher, reports the Industrial Laser Solutions website.
3D-Micromac also says the system can be used for engraving the glass substrate, while the machine has an automatic handling system for reliable transportation of OLED panels through the manufacturing process.
