Glass stripping: One method, two objectives.
When talking about glass stripping, this complex term normally refers to the stripping method via CO2 laser. The surface of a glass element is stripped layer by layer; this may also relate to a coat of varnish or other coating.
In this case, this would represent cleaning of the glass. The actual stripping of glass rather describes a production process also performed with the use of CO2 laser.
The glass element is here returned to its raw form layer by layer. Next, the laser polishes the surface of the glass without stripping additional layers.
In the next step, minor shape deviations from the requirements are corrected through fine-stripping. This is also performed per CO2 laser.
