Laser system integrator 4Jet microtech has launched a job shop for precision processing of glass, thin-films and electronic components. The company offers services for laser cutting, drilling, thin-film patterning and part marking using its portfolio of precision laser processing machines.

MicroFab presents itself as the first dedicated service provider for free form glass cutting services utilizing the kerf-free and high quality Pearl Cut process. Other services include OLED post processing utilizing the selective layer modification (SLAM) process co-developed by 4Jet and Novaled.

4Jet also offers a large format ITO patterning service for substrates up to Gen 4.5, addressing the needs of prototyping or low volume production in display, OLED and other industries. Laser patterning eliminates the need to produce lithography masks and greatly reduces turnaround times. Glass sheets or other flat substrates up to a size of approximately one square meter can be processed with accuracies in the micron range, be it for part cutting, thin-film patterning or positioning of vias.

4Jet utilizes its own range of micromachining systems. The portfolio of lasers include 355nm, 532nm, 1064nm and 10,6µm wavelength and fs, ps, ns and cw pulse durations. Processed parts can be qualified in the metrology lab using light microscopy, surface analytics and bending test. 4Jet’s service offering includes 100 % test, cleaning, packaging and shipping.

The spin-off from sister company 4Jet Technologies develops solutions for processing glass-, displays-, solar cells and other high-tech components. In the company’s Alsdorf facility a team of engineers and physicists develops laser processes and integrated manufacturing tools for industrial applications. (Source: 4Jet)
