Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Sarin Technologies Ltd., a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing, marketing and sale of precision technology products for the planning, processing, evaluation and measurement of diamonds and gems, announced today that, with the successful culmination of the Galaxy Ultra testing in Surat, India, it is launching the commercial service of the Galaxy Ultra in the Surat and Tel-Aviv service centers.
Service at additional
service centers will commence subsequently, as warranted by demand, and
sales and delivery of Galaxy Ultra systems to interested customers is
expected later in 2014. The new Galaxy Ultra offers significant
advantages to manufacturers as it provides inclusion scanning of the
rough diamond at microscope-level magnification, in addition to the
normal scanning executed by the standard Galaxy systems. This allows the
detection of inclusions with single-micron resolution, including the
detection of clouds of inclusions of single micron size. Users will thus
be able to inspect seemingly clean areas of rough diamonds with
extra-high accuracy and determine with a higher level of confidence
whether they can achieve an internally flawless (IF) clarity grade.
scanning, detection and inclusion mapping on the Ultra are fully
automatic, even at this high level of resolution, not like alternative
solutions, where one needs to manually and tediously browse the stone
using a microscope, micron layer by micron layer.
“We are proud of
being able to offer the market this newest member of the Galaxy family
of automated inclusion scanning systems. With its introduction,
manufacturers can now take advantage of the Galaxy's unique
characteristics - its execution of comprehensive inclusion mapping,
automatically and at unmatched speeds, and also benefit from
microscope-level resolution and accuracy,” said Uzi Levami, Sarin’s
executive director and CEO.
“We believe that Sarin’s customers
will significantly benefit from the new capabilities offered by the
Ultra, as they will be able to truly optimize the quality and value of
the polished diamonds they produce from their high quality rough stones
and more confidently achieve far more finished diamonds with IF and VVS
Clarity grades,” he said.
