COMPLEX ROUGH PLANNING MADE SIMPLE VIA TECHNOLOGY
Rough Planning is the process of planning how to cut and polish a rough diamond in order to maximize the value of the polished diamond/s that can be extracted from the rough. How to optimize the cut of the rough diamond will depend on a myriad of factors, such as the size of the rough, the size, type and location of inclusions (natural defects) within the rough diamond, current market demands, and others.
A REVOLUTION IN ROUGH PLANNING
Galaxy systems scan and map inclusions in rough diamonds, offering automated accurate internal assessment that detects the most minute clarity data for a wide range of diamond sizes. Since its initial release in 2009, the Galaxy inclusion mapping system has taken the industry to new levels in terms of maximizing the potential of rough diamonds. The system takes a rough diamond, and reveals to the manufacturer a perfectly accurate picture of all its possible futures as a polished diamond. The idea that diamond manufacturers could now predict and design the optimal cutting plan, with complete precision, was a major breakthrough that influences the entire production pipeline. Galaxy not only changed the way that diamonds are mapped – it also changed the way the industry relates to the concept of rough planning.
