as to Jewelry Industry:
As per the US Government, Canadians have
the highest diamond engagement ring acquisition
rate in the world at 85 percent. The jewelry market
is broken into two retail categories; fine jewelry
(with precious metals and gems) and costume jewelry.
The Canadian jewelry market has hit or exceeded
projected growth expectations for the previous three
years. Primary purchasers of both fine and costume
jewelry are females between the ages of 20 and 50.
In 2006, over US$2 billion was spent by Canadian
consumers on jewelry.
The jewelry industry
uses computer-aided design (CAD) and computer aided
modeling (CAM) is the use of computer technology
to aid in the design and especially the drafting
(technical drawing and engineering drawing) of a
part or product. Current CAD/CAM software systems
are capable to present 3D solid and surface models.
Modern CAD/CAM packages can also frequently allow
rotations in three dimensions, allowing viewing
of a designed object from any desired angle, even
from the inside looking out.
CAD/CAM is used in the
model design of complex creations of jewelry as
well as in simple patterns.
CAD/CAM has become an especially important technology
within the scope of computer-aided technologies,
with benefits such as lower product development
costs and a greatly shortened design cycle. CAD/CAM
enables designers to lay out and develop work on
screen, print it out and save it for future editing,
saving time on their drawings.
Our design engineers are modeling in CAD/CAM software
such as the latest generation of Rhino and Matrix.
Because of the high cost of rapid prototyping equipment
and the high level of technical expertise required
to reliably produce perfect parts, the trend is
to use specialized third-party service bureaus.
We offer reduced time and cost for designers and
their clients with state-of-the-art technology.
Our machines build wax models, such as Jewelry
Models, from computer files using thermoplastics
that are perfect components for investment casting.
See some of the machinery here.
Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by translating
CAD Designs into hard copy 3D models. These models
are so accurate that designers can go beyond concept
modeling to produce tooling grade patterns ready
for casting or mold-making.
Jointly CAD/CAM allows the design of jewelry using
a computer (CAD) and creates an exact hard copy
model of a jewelry piece using a computer controlled
manufacturing device (CAM). Our technicians utilize
all file types compatible with any CAM device, which
allows us to quickly generate a precise wax model
ready for casting.
Stereolithography and these other hard model technologies
are the future of the jewelry industry. Leading
jewelers effectively use CAM "service bureaus"
that specialize in prototype output.
Our technicians have been in the jewelry business
since 1983, operating in various branches of the
industry. We are some of the finest jewelry manufacturers
and jewelers in the jewelry industry.
The jewelry industry is spread all over the world
and has gone from being a small part of the world
economy to being a driving force. Precious jewellery
is a status symbol that individuals in emerging
countries are eager to acquire.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
manufacturing process from start to finish,
we deliver quality.
