Automation is taking over areas where tasks involve repetition and precision. One such area where automated machines are ready to take over humans is Diamond Grading and Diamond Sorting. Diamond sorting, despite being repetitive, could not be automated until now as it was a skilled task. To be able to sort, a gemologist undergoes difficult training to learn this art, but even then the most skilled make errors because of fatigue and judgment errors.
This new machine is amongst the most amazing gemtools available in the world. This automatic sorter can grade diamonds based on specified ranges of color and size, both at the same time. Moreover, it can reliably work around the clock and work with a speed equaling 3 skilled gemologists.
The machine operates with two robotic arms – one feeding the sorter and another sorting the analyzed diamonds. This new diamond sorting machine seems to have the potential to make a big impact in the world of gemology.
