Sapphire cutting

Traditionally, natural sapphires are cut and polished into gemstones and worn in jewelry. They also may be synthesized in laboratories for industrial or decorative purposes. Because of the remarkable hardness of sapphires, they are also used in some non-ornamental applications, such as infrared optical components, high-durability windows, wristwatch crystals and movement bearings, and very thin electronic wafers, which are used as the insulating substrates of very special-purpose solid-state electronics. 

As a hard brittle material, mechanically processed sapphire is prone to cracks, fragmentation, delamination, edge breaking and other defects. Laser cutting technology is a high speed, high quality cutting method, which can avoid the flaws in mechanical processing.
