What are crystalline materials?

Crystalline materials are solid materials consisting of crystalline substances containing groups of atoms, ions, molecules or particles with regular periodic arrangements and translational symmetry.

SPP Industry has been deeply involved in the field of crystalline material machining for 12 years and we were one of the first Chinese manufacturers to develop mechanical machining of sapphire, ruby, fluoride, quartz glass and other materials.

Crystal material machining FAQ

With a Mohs hardness of 9, sapphires are characterised by their high hardness, but are generally brittle.

The high unit price is not suitable for consumer electronics, and the durable bottom is prone to cracking and breaking.

Ruby CMM probe, non-magnetic for more accurate measurement.

High temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, good thermal stability, good light transmission and insulation.
