IIJS Virtual 2.0 Introduced the Machinery & Allied Section to showcase the applied technology in the field of jewellery making. Magnic Technologies’, Intriguity, and Indigo Prints spoke to Solitaire about the various products that they are presenting at the show and their expectations from the virtual format.
World’s First “Ferrous Particle Detector” By Magnic Technologies
Magnic Technologies’ flagship product, which is also the world’s first Ferrous Particle Detecting Machine, solves one of the biggest problems in the gold jewellery manufacturing industry – that of tumbling polishing pins getting entangled in jewellery pieces.
Karthikeyan Chandran, Founder of Magnic Technologies Pvt. Ltd., said, “The company first developed this product for a leading jewellery manufacturer when it had a serious problem of being unable to identify and remove tumbling polishing pins that were getting stuck in jewels. Its customers were returning the jewellery and the company had to employ a team of 20-25 people to identify and remove those pins.
“We used the Magnetic Field sensing technology, and developed a machine that could identify and detect jewellery having ferrous impurity in them.”
Over the last three years, we have sold around 160 machines across the country. All the
leading retailers in the country have our machines.
Another product that the company is working on which is in prototype stage, is called Photo Studio Machine. As most of the companies are leveraging the e-commerce platform to sell their products during the pandemic, the industry needs a product that will help them to present their products in a better way. Jewellery sales through e-commerce is expected to grow after the pandemic, too. “As the touch and-feel aspect is absent through sales via e-commerce, our new product will help the exhibitors to solve this problem to an extent. The Photo Studio Machine will be useful to take 360-degree photographs and videos. It also has inbuilt software which can edit the photos,” concludes Chandran.
He is hopeful of IIJS Virtual 2.0 giving the company an ideal platform to reach out to new, prospective clients.
Easy Solutions To Set up Your Online Presence
Vikrant Rawa, Founder & CEO, Intriguity, talks about two new offerings at IIJS Virtual to bolster online sites.
With e-commerce taking centre stage, especially during the pandemic, the two requirements that are in high demand are jewellery rendering and product photography.
Everybody has realised that it is essential to have an online presence, along with physical stores. There are automated systems for jewellery photography and jewellery rendering solutions that can be useful when you set an online platform for your products.
Vikrant Rawa from Intriguity, talking about the products that his company is showcasing at IIJS Virtual 2.0, said, “Intriguity is a technology company providing solutions to the jewellery industry since 2008. It has more than 350 customers pan India.
Primarily, we started with 3D printing and 3D CAD solutions, but now we have been focusing more on e-commerce solutions as well.
“For jewellery photography, we have a machine from Orbitvu, a Poland-based company that provides a 360-degree photography system. This is basically an automated photography system wherein you do not require any expertise to create studio-quality jewellery photographs. The machine does everything – automated background removal, automated focus setting, and creates 360-degree videos. It also has in-built lighting, turntable, etc. So, it’s a complete solution for any jeweller who needs an in-house photography solution.”
Talking about the expectation from IIJS Virtual 2.0, Rawa said “We have been participating in IIJS since 2008. IIJS Virtual would be a new experience. If we could get similar kind of enquires that we get at the physical show, then this virtual format would be great. Then every year we would continue with the virtual format of IIJS along with the physical show.”
The company also provides software and training for operating the KeyShot program, which is used for the creation of renderings that can be showcased on the website, especially diamond jewellery.
