  • CUSTOM - Investigation of the material behavior of ultrathin flexible glass in layered composites

    With the market launch of foldable displays, flexible glasses recently entered mass production. In order to firmly establish them as a flexible substrate material and alternative to polymer films, stable and reliable production processes must be developed. Until now, mechanical failure of the glasses has led to costly production downtime. The CUSTOM project therefore aims to gain new fundamental insights into the edge strength and fatigue behavior of thin glass and the influence of selected coating and separation processes on these properties. The strength parameters determined can be used directly for dimensioning and designing equipment throughout the thin glass processing value chain. The project is being handled by Fraunhofer FEP in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS. The IMWS is a methodologically oriented institute in the discipline of materials science and materials engineering.

  • GLASS4FLEX

    New process technologies as pioneers for flexible glass applications in optical systems Subproject: Research, development and provision of a process chain for large-area cleaning, inspection, handling and PVD processing of flexible ultra-thin glass at Fraunhofer FEP.

    The challenge in the use of ultra-thin glass lies in the entire process chain of its processing. This is where the joint project GLASS4FLEX comes in. It addresses the handling of individual large-area flexible thin glasses of the maximum size of 1.2 m × 0.6 m. At the center of the consortium is SCHOTT AG as the developer and manufacturer of the ultra-thin glass. The other project partners span the entire process chain - starting with the Schmid Group, which will deal with the development of cleaning processes as well as the associated  process technology for the thin glass in in-line cleaning systems. Subsequently, the Gesellschaft für Bild- und Signalverarbeitung (GBS) mbH will take over the research and development of the analysis of the 3D surface properties including the 3D sensor technology and the automatic testing machine. Handling and transfer will be covered by the partners ProTec Carrier Systems GmbH and Adenso Industrial Services GmbH.

    As part of the project, Fraunhofer FEP is conducting research on optical and electrical functional coatings for thin glass in the sheet-to-sheet process. As a result, it should be possible to present the first large-area coated thin glasses with color-neutral scratch protection and transparent electrode from a fully constructed process chain in Dresden by 2022.
