All mechanical parts are made from Titanium, manufactured on high precision CNC machines. Meyco diamond knives can therefore be sterilized by any conventional method.
The shape of the blades is cut with a Yag laser.
Only diamond, as the hardest known material, can be ground so smoothly that it’s cutting edge is still perfect under 500x magnification. Each Meyco diamond blade is checked under this magnification after the final grinding.
According to the Rosiwal scale, a diamond has an abrasive hardness of 140 times that of sapphire and ruby (corundum). This explains why the cornea can be cut so smoothly with a perfect ground diamond.
