In order to obtain the images of the industrial diamonds, natural diamonds, ABN (amorphous boron nitride) grit & CBN (cubic boron nitride) grit the DiaShape systems relie on scanners with transmissive light units and a digital microscope also operated in transmissive light mode. The analysis, visualization and evaluation are done by the DiaShape software. The use of scanners is crucial for success. They enable the measurement of the 4C – carat, cut, color and clarity. The measurement of many specimen in a single batch is a big advantage. Microscopes are employed when a higher resolution is required such as for the width measurement in the range of microns.
Example: Analysis of YK-9 diamonds
