Title: METHODS OF CONTINUOUS FABRICATION OF FEATURES IN FLEXIBLE SUBSTRATE WEBS AND PRODUCTS RELATING TO THE SAME
Abstract:
Methods of continuous fabrication of features in flexible substrates are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method of fabricating features in a substrate web includes providing the substrate web arranged in a first spool on a first spool assembly, advancing the substrate web from the first spool and through a laser processing assembly comprising a laser, and creating a plurality of defects within the substrate web using the laser. The method further includes advancing the substrate web through an etching assembly and etching the substrate web at the etching assembly to remove glass material at the plurality of defects, thereby forming a plurality of features in the substrate web. The method further includes rolling the substrate web into a final spool.
