We meet the most demanding standards of material purity and precision in our sapphire optics – for measuring systems such as refractometers, spectrometers, photometers and pyrometers.
Our speciality: spherical sapphire windows to protect optical sensors, camera systems and infrared optics.
We meet the highest standards in matters of flatness surface finish and purity of the materials in our plano optics, mirrors, wedge windows, fibre optics and spherical lenses.
We produce components from ultra-hard materials for use in human and veterinary medicine.
Kyburz is your partner
for optical components
Kyburz Sapphire specialises in the machining of sapphire, ceramics, and other hard materials. We deliver precision, down to nano-ranges.
Our motto: being exact is not precise enough.
Our core competence lies in developing custom-made optical components and the corresponding tooling and support systems. As our client, we will support you in part specification, process design, prototype-building and industrial production. Thanks to our production depth, we can also solve complex tasks while maintaining great flexibility with regard to the geometry and size of our work pieces.
For this we can draw on various processing technologies such as flexible 5-axis grinding centres, efficient laser processing and reliable polishing methods. For finishing procedures such as coatings and assembly, we are assisted by our long-term, expert partners and subcontractors.
Challenge us. We're ready.
Prototypes for small
and medium series
Thanks to our machining versatility we are able to offer fast prototyping. A winning combination of many years of experience and innovative solutions allows us to carry out the industrialisation required for successful serial production. Our goal is the reproducibility and the suitability, and documenting all necessary working steps up to serial production.
Whether creating individual pieces or hundreds or even thousands, our prime concern is accuracy and client satisfaction.
Our ingenious workflow system supports us in this.
our core competence
Our core competence lies in the development of custom-made optical components and the corresponding, customized tooling and support systems.
As our client, we will support you in part specification, process design, prototype-building and industrial production. Competence and innovation are at the heart of our bespoke, pragmatic solutions. This is why we support our clients through the entire process, from defining specifications and the work techniques to creating the prototypes and serial manufacture.
in perfect quality
We process all kinds of ultra-hard materials. We use multifarious, reliable channels to procure these materials from partners all over the world. This ensures an independent, secure supply chain. Selecting the right sapphire material is just as much part of our service as is determining its specifications, quality control and guaranteed traceability. In addition to sapphire, we also process YAG, spinel, ruby and oxide ceramics.
