Is it possible to cut diamond in 3D position by servo driven automation stages ? Or any mechanical fixture which can not leave it first position center in micron ?

Dear Sir,

We are aware of such systems. At present we have 0.5 micron accuracy x and y stages. Z axis is also cable to up and down in micron. Also we can manipulate laser beam. But all these facilities works on 2D cutting only. CNC type system can not cut but it bruit(polish) and the diamond convert in to dust. Also it is time taking.

What is my idea is - When we put raw diamond for process- The Fixture shall move as per program and also the stone shall be move as per requirements as the laser beam is statutory.

In India we can cut table, crown, Girdle, Pavilion and cone it for round shape in a one setting. We shall move further for any geometric shapes.

Those don't look like the diamond-cutting ones....
