Our products

Product category: Laser cutting technology

TGC Series

The patented CO2 laser technology by MDI enables use and handling of ultra-thin glass not only in the experimental phase, but also in industrial production.

- highly durable cutting edges without micro cracks
- roll-up of glasses with thickness from 30µm to 200µm
- no chippings due to no material loss
- no additional tensions inside the glass
