Artificial intelligence is influential in various sectors and diamond manufacturing is no exception. AI is revolutionizing various areas in diamond manufacturing, thereby offering lesser manufacturing time and reducing the associated costs.
In this article, we are exploring the ways in which Artificial Intelligence is transforming the diamond manufacturing industry.
AI Makes The Diamond Pipeline More Flexible
The journey of a diamond from its rough to the final polished form is quite complex involving many players starting from the miners to the retailers. In its journey, diamond is processed using various technologies, complex and simple. Artificial Intelligence can be effectively used in diamond mining for more efficient planning and decision making during the drilling process. For example, drones can be used for aerial imaging, geological tracking devices can be used for locating diamond reserves and sensors can be fitted in drilling rigs to collect real-time data.
Artificial intelligence can improve the accuracy of the diamond grading process and make it more efficient than standard processes. Grading systems powered by AI allow maximum flexibility in the pattern of analyzing and grading diamonds.
Quicker and improved grading of diamonds with AI based technology means that the manufacturers have the space and time to optimize their polished yield based on various grading parameters while the diamond is still being processed. AI based grading ensures the suitability of inventory for specific markets by offering better accuracy during the manufacturing stage.
Finetuning the pipeline for high clarity diamonds is possible with the help of advanced sorting processes based on accurate AI-based clarity grading. The provision to make better inventory increases the revenue and allows the manufacturer to boost its brand better in the highly competitive market.
Reduced Manufacturing Times
In an attempt to maximize the yield and quality of the polished diamonds, manufacturers usually send out polished diamonds to gem labs where the grading results of the diamond are improved. Manufacturers may send the diamonds to these gem labs more than once for repeated grading analysis of the same. This increases the production time and cost and compromises the efficiency of the process as well.
With the assistance of grading technologies known for better accessibility and speed, manufacturers can reduce the back and forth operations associated with optimization of the diamond grade. AI reduces manufacturing times without compromising the quality and accuracy of diamond grading.
AI has a significant positive impact on the ways in which diamond manufacturers operate. This feature benefits all the players involved in the diamond industry.
