They trust us

We count companies from various industries among our customers. Here is a selection of our valued clients.

What they say about us

“The Laser MicroJet (LMJ) from Synova offers exceptional laser machining capabilities. The gentle machining process allows the production of highly accurate parts without causing heat damage, deformation or other material changes.”

Mr. Kido, Makino Milling Machines, Japan

“The microjet slices through CMCs like a knife through butter.”

Kurt Godwin, General Electric, USA

“We would like to acknowledge Synova’s proactive approach in understanding our requirements in detail and implementing these as best as possible in our DCS 300 and are happy to say that the Laser MicroJet technology has proved itself as the next frontier in laser diamond sawing.”

Venus Jewel, India

“... we’re implementing technology that not many companies have access to. That includes the Synova laser cutting machine, which is the most advance technology available today.”

Yoram Dvash, President of the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE)

“ The Laser-Microjet is a “black swan”, meaning an event that happens very rarely – a true disruptive technology!”

Benjamin King, KingBrokerage, USA
