Do Fun with your Mobile….

robotic jewelry polishing system

If you live in Rapid City, South Dakota, and if you bring one of your old rings to a jewelry shop for cleaning, it’s highly possible that the job might be done by a robotic jeweler. An engineer at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSMT) has built and brought to market a robotic system which can pick up a ring, polish and grind the ring, and replace the ring in its original tray before picking up the next ring. And of course, it’s able to do this faster than a human being: it can function about three times faster than a human operator when configured as a grinder and about four times faster when configured as a pre-polisher.
