Laser cutting of thin film ceramic is also possible using a CO2 laser, producing a clean edge with little discoloration.

Two types of lasers are ideal for cutting ceramic. Bright fiber lasers (1064-nm wavelength) and high-powered CO2 lasers (10600-nm wavelength) work well with ceramic and provide fast cutting. You can also use femtosecond lasers, which offer superior cut quality and precision.
