DIAMOND TECHNOLOGY SINCE 1961
The fabrication of diamond tools for turning and milling, i.e. for machining non-ferrous metals, predominantly in the watch and jewellery industry, formed the beginning of our activities. Machines that were produced in-house with optimal running smoothness and precise tools for cutting and finishing the diamonds soon perfected the manufacturing process and enabled Meyco to produce tools with high demands on precision and cutting polish.
In 1970 Meyco started a project for the production of diamond knives for cutting ultrathin, biological and technical specimens in an ultramicrotome. Ultramicrotomy is an important preparation method for research by means of transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy. It has been a world leader in this market niche for many years thanks to innovative new products with its DIATOME diamond knives.
