TLC Summit Gen-5® High-Accuracy Mechanical Glass Cutter Update

After nearly a year in design/build/test, the first TLC Summit Gen-5® High-Accuracy Mechanical Glass Cutter will ship later this month.

It was designed to meet the ever-increasing need for larger technical glass substrates, higher production and precision singulation processing, especially in the photonics, optics, and FPD industries.

The 68” x 94”/1727 mm x 2388 mm footprint of the TLC Summit Gen-5® requires far less real estate than comparable equipment with the capacity to process Gen 5 and Gen 5.5 substrates. Larger than originally planned, the unobstructed 46” x 58”/1160 mm x 1460 mm cutting stage provides easy integration into fully-automated production lines.

The TLC Summit Gen-5® has the same multifunctional flexibility, quality and accuracy of the Gen-3 TLC Phoenix-600® with the capability of cutting single sheet and laminated thin flat substrates into rectilinear, circular and/or curvilinear parts with close-precision tolerance. The user-friendly Windows®-based operating system seamlessly interfaces with AutoCAD® .dxf drawings. Intuitive operator screens make input fast and simple.

Unlike other large format mechanical glass cutting equipment, TLC’s cutting process is quick, clean and dry (no contaminating oil or water), and produces clean afterbreak edge quality. With a CCD camera incorporated in the unique TLC rotating cutting head, target setup is instantaneous. Repeatable, accurate processing of X-Y and shaped FPDs, electrochromic mirrors, dichroic filters, microwindows, heat transfer mirrors, sight glasses, polarizing filters, viewfinders, biomed microslides/cover slips, entertainment lighting gobos, and a myriad of other thin, flat glass/substrate products can be easily achieved with the TLC Summit Gen-5®.
