Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Sarin Technologies Ltd, a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing and sale of precision technology products for the planning, processing, evaluation and measurement of diamonds and gems, is pleased to announce that Bhavani Gems, a leading Indian diamond manufacturer, exporter and sightholder of both DeBeers DTC and BHP Billiton, has taken delivery of the first Quazer II, Sarin's new and most advanced laser system for cutting and shaping rough diamonds.
The Quazer II is Sarin's newest laser system for sawing and shaping diamonds. It culminates over two years of refinement of virtually all the original Quazer's components, sub-systems, and software, introducing the most advanced laser system to the diamond industry.
Manjibhai Dholakia, Bhavani Gems' founder, a pioneer in adopting new technologies and business practices, said, “We are proud to be the first to receive the Quazer II system with its all-new features that makes it the right choice for our production line.”
Uzi Levami, Chief Executive Officer of Sarin, stated, “The introduction of the Quazer II technology into the production process will provide diamond manufacturers the best green laser solution for cutting and shaping rough diamonds to be offered for sale. We intend to enhance this product with the Strategist software product, which will be launched later this year and will further optimise the sawing and shaping process, ultimately enabling the operator to take Galaxy 1000 inclusion mapping output data into account.”
