What is Helium Tender scanner and who benefits

What is Helium Tender?

Helium Tender is a portable scanner. It is an accurate and advance rough cavity & inclusion mapping, value based planning equipment, optimizing rough with value analysis and sawing plans.

Salient Features

  1. Any inclusion including Gletz / piques / bubbles (VS to I) can be considered.
  2. The machine intelligence will help you in deciding if inclusion removal or re-orientation will maximize your profit. At the time of tender, this is even more important.
  3. If the suggested plan includes the inclusions, machine software will show you where those inclusions will be reflected in the polished stone. The machine will grade the finished stone based on size of inclusions left inside the polished stone, its orientation and its reflection / refraction inside the polished stone. Model building accuracy is better than 0.020 mm makes this possible.
  4. Can be transferred to M-Box for VVS1 to IF Inclusion.
  5. Free Oxygen Viewer will make it possible for your overseas office to participate in critical decision making. They will be able to view the provisional / final plan of the virtual stone, and give their consent before further process.
  6. LAN configurable and multi user environment software support reduces overall cost. Inclusion placement and allocation can be done in off machine mode to reduce load on the scanner and increase its utility factor (reduce overall investment).
  7. Can handle size up to 25mm or 33mm.
  8. The software is specifically designed to accurately suggest the most profitable planning options in value recovery terms. In the process the Rapaport / user specific price structure can be used.
  9. Offline working mode - you can scan the stone overseas and plan your stone locally - value based and inclusion based. Easy to install. Just Connect to USB Port of your laptop and Go.
  10. Easy to carry with portable carry bag.
  11. No realignment required.

Immersion Glass

In this technology, Immersion Glass material is used. Immersion Glass is the material having nearly same Refractive Index value as Diamond and is solid at Room temperature and melts to liquid at around 100C. We can heat Immersion Glass and Diamond in cubical mold so glass and diamond will become a single entity and reflections of inclusions will be removed. Due to absence of reflections, plotting on M-Box is more precise, very easy and can be done by even non-experienced operator.
