Cerion: innovative laser processing and finishing of glass

2014-04-20 | Innovation

The future, as seen by the company of this article – Cerion – is where glass and light meet each other in unexpected ways. Ideas can be realized with laser technology – decoration, drilling and cutting of glass without contact – with the power of laser beams. Cerion gives us a few of the numerous applications that lasers can have in the glass sector.

Cerion: innovative laser processing and finishing of glass
Whether matting glass on the surface or its internal structure with 3-dimensional design, or drilling and cutting into complex shapes – lasers are the latest solution. Lasers also offer pioneering and optimal solutions for the structuring or removal of glass coatings, as well as for machine-readable and aesthetically challenging marking of glass.

Projects – Architectural and design
School of Music, DE-Norderstedt
The new building of the School of Music in Norderstedt, near Hamburg, is a project with a high design standard. The building was completed in 2011. The generous glass façade consists of about 30 insulating elements in composite technology, 150 kilos each. A graphic designer provided a stripe decor, which should extend across the entire façade and never repeat a variation of strip width and spacing in its otherwise strict formal Thus, each façade element is an individual and unique part of the picture. Laser matting can fully exploit its advantages on this design. The degree of matting could be adjusted accurately and the cumbersome masking of the glass elements with foil for sandblasting was omitted. The desired stripe graphics could be completely calculated as the total decor in the powerful software of Cerion, the subsequent laser processing operated independently. The façade is structured identically internally and externally. In this project, a total area of approximately 300 square meters were processed using lasers. (Figure 1)
