Sarine launches new loupe
Sarine Technologies has introduced the Sarine Loupe, which creates a 3-D digital file of a diamond that can be rotated freely in all directions, zoomed in on, and thoroughly inspected.

The file can be shared digitally throughout various platforms, eliminating the need to travel with stock.

It is currently offered to Indian diamond manufacturers and wholesalers, with a full commercial launch projected for the third quarter, the company said.

Demos of the loupe can be seen here and here. Additional information can be found by contacting Sarine at marketing@sarine.com.

New laser assists with branding
PhotoScribe Technologies is now offering its LMF-30 fiber laser, which is easy and flexible, the company said.

The laser features a red diode that eliminates positioning and alignment mistakes and shows the boundary of the marking field or the projected image. It can inscribe text, maker’s and metal hallmarks, barcodes, logos and numbers on small items, including earring posts.

The laser does not require special training, PhotoScribe said, and comes with marking software that has the capability to mark any file, with a user-friendly interface that works with all Windows operating systems.

For additional information contact PhotoScribe at info@photoscribetech.com or 800-746-8672.

Wire cutter has built-in retainer
Xuron Corp. has created the Model 9100F Oval Head Wire Cutter for jewelry making that employs bypass cutting to produce a clean, square cut with a built-in cut wire retainer for convenience and safety.

The retainer prevents cut wire from flying around a jeweler’s work area, which is safer for the jeweler and means excess wire won’t get lost. The cutter is designed for soft wire up to 1.2 mm thick.

In addition, the Model 9100F requires half the force of conventional compression-style cutters, which can deform a wire.

The cutter retails for $25.50 and is available by contacting Xuron at 207-283-1401 or by emailing Abby Robey, arobey@xuron.com.

Editor's note: This article was corrected May 20 to clarify the fact that the Pure collection will feature new designs by Precision Set using Forevermark diamonds. The new designs are not from Forevermark.
