Jewelry Laser welding Services
The laser welder allows
jewelers to do their jobs better. This technological advancement
is becoming increasingly common in trade shops and manufacturing
facilities. By using a sharply focused beam of light to
produce very high heat in a small area, lasers allow jewelers
to routinely accomplish tasks that would once have been
either impossible or too time consuming to be worthwhile.
Time savings by laser welding
translates into higher productivity. The laser's concentrated
heat also facilitates delicate repairs without risking
further damage to fragile antique jewelry.
With the laser welder, you're keeping the integrity of
the piece by not removing heat-sensitive stones, and you're
able to keep the patina, the look that an old piece of
jewelry has. That patina tells a story, and when you're
trying to repair or restore that piece with a conventional
torch, you lose it. The piece of jewelry gets oxidized,
the colors change, requiring that one needs to polish
Jewelers are discovering that laser welders can save time
and money in jewelry manufacture. With the accuracy of
the laser, we can do very complicated pieces and diamond
intensive pieces, and are able to assemble them after
the diamonds are set. As well you can polish the pieces
before assembly that results in a better finished item.
Assembling with a laser is very quick and very easy.
Not only assembling, but as well with a laser you can
repair defects in milliseconds to fuse a hole.
These are just some of the specific ways
to use laser welders:
Jewelers have long re-tipped gold prongs near diamonds
without removing the diamonds from their settings. This
can be perilous with platinum prongs and impossible
with heat sensitive stones such as emerald and opal.
The laser's concentrated heat makes it possible to use
this technique with almost any setting.
- Repairing stainless steel
With a laser welder you can repair watches with deployment
buckles, where the rivet holding the strap piece on
has come off. Stainless steel is difficult at best to
solder, but with a laser you can put the rivet back
in and just use the laser to tack rivet on both sides.
Stainless steel watch bands can be repaired that once
would have needed to be replaced.
- Creating made-to-order pieces
The laser makes it much easier to assemble rings with
- Fixing mistakes:
When setting stones and a prong breaks, a zap with a
laser will fix it. To rebuild castings that have not
completely filled, the laser is used to add metal wherever
the fill was incomplete.
- Removing broken drill bits and small broken
Instead of loosing the metal work around the broken
drill bit or diamond, we can simply vaporize it.
- Tennis bracelet repair
We can repair tennis bracelet links without removing
the stones or running the risk of solder flowing into
the hinge and destroying its mobility, laser
welding is the best tool to use for these repairs.
