Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:ESIO), a leading supplier of innovative laser-based manufacturing solutions for the microtechnology industry, today announced shipments of its DiamondBlaze™ 5000 and 7000 Glass Singulation tools to leading Asia-based touch panel manufacturers.
ESI’s DiamondBlaze™ product line cuts all strengthened glass products, including Corning® Gorilla Glass and Willow Glass, to enable thinner, lighter, and lower-cost touch screens for consumer devices while offering improved resistance to damage. ESI’s considerable knowledge of laser systems and microfabrication technologies lowers overall cost for touch panel manufacturers while enabling future device designs.
The DiamondBlaze™ product line employs a laser-based micro-disruption™ process to rapidly singulate strengthened glass with high yield, industry-leading cutting speeds and minimal edge damage. ESI’s proprietary process delivers optimal yields on Corning’s® Gorilla NBT Glass products with thicknesses down to 0.4mm and central tension (CT) values ranging from 40 to 100. The DiamondBlaze™ has also been demonstrated to cut previous generations of chemically strengthened glass across a wide thickness range.
ESI’s DiamondBlaze™ tools are positioned to meet consumer electronics manufacturers’ demands for stronger, thinner materials with lower cost of ownership. “We are very pleased to announce these shipments of our DiamondBlaze™ 5000 and DiamondBlaze™ 7000 products, and we are excited by the growth opportunities they present. We believe the cost of ownership provided by this technology will allow our customers to save money by enabling cost-effective manufacturing of next-generation, more robust, touch panel modules,” said Michael Darwin, VP and General Manager of ESI’s Industrial Products Division.
The DiamondBlaze™ range of products covers Gen 4.5 up to Gen 6 manufacturing lines. All systems support factory automation for ease of system integration into existing and future factory floors.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
