Based on the experience with siliceous materials obtained at FhG IWS while doing technological research on several techniques, as internal engraving of glass or cleaning and milling of natural stone, a laser beam technique for cutting and drilling of concrete and other siliceous materials has been developed, and a related patent has been granted. The main feature of this technique is a pressurized cutting head for driving the highly viscous glassy melt out of the gap. The cutting has been done with Nd:YAG- and diode lasers whose performance and size make them suitable for field work.
