Vitrion -- Precision Glass Processing Service
We unlock the full potential of glass for microsystems technology
Solution for foldable glass displays
Foldable displays are the talk of the town these days. Current folding displays are made of plastics and are therefore prone to scratches, wrinkles and premature total failure. Conventional smartphone displays do not have these problems because they are made up of at least two layers of tempered glass. Due to the glass, however, these displays cannot be folded easily. The LPKF Laser & Electronics AG presents a solution for this problem - made possible by the LIDE technology.
The Society for Information Display (SID) Honorary Award
LPKF and Vitrion received the SID Honorary Award at Display Week in San Jose, California, for LIDE technology and foldable glass backplanes.
For a folding display we have produced a glass substrate with a local solid state joint. Since LIDE is free of surface defects, this is possible. With this structure we have already survived 400 000 cycles - in glass there is no fatigue process.
Unlock the full potential of glass for your application
LIDE-enabling technology makes previously inconceivable designs possible.
LIDE-generated features in glass wafers boast an accuracy which is almost ten times higher than that achieved with conventional methods.
Glass spring made by LIDE technology
This is only possible when there are no micro-cracks in the glass.
Under the brand name Vitrion, a team of dedicated engineers and researchers allows you to take advantage of the latest process technology for thin glass applications while focusing on added value for your application.
The patented LIDE technology has been developed by LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, a highly specialized photonics machinery manufacturer and a leading provider of laser-driven production processes. The LIDE technology was the winner of the Productronica Innovation Award 2017.
