Ecublens, Switzerland - Diamond company De Beers has acquired a 33.4% equity stake in laser micromachining provider Synova. The partnership will provide solid ground for Synova's other core business units (semiconductors and metal machining).
The two companies will work together to develop a fully automated cutting and shaping solution, with Synova's patented water-jet-guided Laser MicroJet (LMJ) technology at its core. The technology achieves higher yields, reduces the risk of breakage, and generates higher productivity due to faster cutting time and easier processing.
