First AMS Micro instrument to deliver at KGK Suisse

Readers are aware that recently, De Beers Group Ignite has officially launched its latest diamond verification instrument, AMS Micro, one of the first devices to offer rapid, automated and autonomous screening of high volumes of the smallest melee diamonds.

First-of-its-kind device offers rapid, automated screening of large volumes of the smallest melee diamonds; KGK Suisse to take delivery of first instrument! The first AMS Micro instrument will be delivered to the Swiss office of leading diamond manufacturer and De Beers Group Sightholder, KGK, at the end of February.

Patrik Schäfer, CEO of KGK’s Swiss office, said: “As one of the world’s leading diamantaires, the integrity of the diamonds we sell is of utmost importance. The AMS Micro eliminates the human error element in testing diamonds below 0.9mm and offers automised reports which prove the results of the testing.

In doing so, the AMS Micro provides a missing link in the chain of test traceability outside of the laboratories. AMS Micro will help us to increase our volumes and delivery turnaround times to our customers, which addresses a key pain point for us currently.

The KGK Group has been impressed by the innovation and capabilities offered by AMS Micro, which revolutionises the approach for screening diamonds in this size range, and we are excited about the long term benefits it will deliver to our business by providing enhanced assurance to our customers.”

Throughout development of AMS Micro, De Beers Group Ignite collaborated with a number of potential customers to understand key priorities and ensure the instrument would best meet industry needs. Sarandos said: “We’ve had a very positive response from all customers we’ve engaged with throughout the development of AMS Micro. We already have a steady pipeline of orders underway, reflecting the strong desire among diamond businesses for the benefits AMS Micro delivers.”
