Sarine: 10 Million Stones Scanned by Galaxy® Systems Worldwide in 2017January 03, 18
(IDEX Online) – Sarine Technologies Ltd said that its Galaxy® family of scanning and inclusion mapping systems surpassed the milestone of having scanned 10 million stones worldwide in one year in 2017.
Since its release into the market in late 2009, Sarine’s internal inclusion mapping technology, the Galaxy family of systems (today encompassing the Galaxy, Galaxy XL, Galaxy Ultra, Solaris and Meteor products), has provided automated, accurate, comprehensive and fast inclusion mapping data for rough diamonds in all major diamond processing centers worldwide, so as to allow computer assisted diamond planning based also on clarity, in addition to cut and carat weight, as was previously the norm.
The Galaxy family of systems maximizes polished diamond yield, while expediting the manufacturing cycle and reducing human error.
"We are extremely pleased that, industry conditions and other impediments in 2017 notwithstanding, we can today report the milestone of having scanned 10 million stones in a single year, and over 30 million stones cumulatively since the technology’s launch.
David Block, Chief Executive Officer of Sarine, stated, "Having without doubt proven its value, the Galaxy® solution has uniquely propelled the industry to a higher level of quality. By scanning 10 million rough stones in 2017, our loyal customer base has clearly expressed, once again, confidence in our cutting-edge technology. We will continue our commitment to developing and delivering the highest quality inclusion mapping solutions, including the new Meteorite™ system to be launched shortly and additional upgrades to be launched later in 2018 with further technological breakthroughs."
