“We are proud of our partnership with RTC Vision. They have made a real contribution to Sarine’s development process, with a strong commitment to product quality and innovation. RTC has helped us reach our objectives by delivering quality solutions as planned.”
In order to maximize the value of polished diamonds, it is essential to first accurately detect and map the inclusions in the rough diamonds. This enables a fair assessment and efficient rough diamond planning. To accurately, quickly, and automatically detect and map inclusions regardless of their type, size, and location within the rough diamond, is a significant challenge. Sarine’s unique capability eliminates the need to ‘polish windows’ in order to view the inclusions within and revolutionizes not only the diamond manufacturing process, but the diamond trade as well.
RTC Vision was requested to assist the Sarine team to meet this challenging objective. By incorporating RTC Vision’s technology and unique physical models of various defect types with Sarine’s accurate modeling of the diamond, Sarine and RTC Vision were able to realize a high standard of inclusion detection and mapping.
