Synova intros laser cutting and shaping system for diamond machining

Oct. 4, 2019
The DaVinci automatic cutting and shaping system for diamonds decreases diamond production time by combining several manufacturing processes.

Laser cutting systems maker Synova (Duillier, Switzerland) has developed an automatic cutting and shaping system for diamonds. The DaVinci Diamond Factory system decreases diamond production time by combining several manufacturing processes, and reduces polishing processes to a final finishing step, eliminating the need for crown and pavilion blocking, girdle bruting, and recurrent quality checks.

Central to the DaVinci system is Synova's DCS 50 laser machine based on the company's advanced Laser MicroJet technology. The five-axis CNC machine's detection technology recognizes when a cut is finished and automatically initiates facet changing.

The water jet-guided Laser MicroJet technology cools the diamond surface during laser ablation and significantly reduces the risk of rough diamond cracking, especially with stress stones. The water jet maintains the laser's focus when creating a cylindrical laser beam, resulting in parallel walls and tight kerf widths.

De Beers, a minority shareholder, has made diamond product available for some of the machine testing.
