Prototyping bureau for the jewelry industry


More information about our Products & Services >>

Rapid prototyping is the automatic construction of physical objects using solid freeform fabrication. The first techniques for rapid prototyping became available in the late 1980s and were used to produce models and prototype parts. Today, they are used for a much wider range of applications and are even used to manufacture production quality parts in relatively small numbers. Some sculptors use the technology to produce complex shapes for fine arts exhibitions.

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 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.

Rapid prototyping takes virtual designs from computer aided design (CAD) or animation modeling software, transforms them into thin, virtual, horizontal cross-sections and then creates each cross-section in physical space, one after the next until the model is finished. It is a WYSIWYG process where the virtual model and the physical model correspond almost identically.

With additive fabrication, the machine reads in data from a CAD drawing and lays down successive layers of liquid, powder, or sheet material, and in this way builds up the model from a series of cross sections. These layers, which correspond to the virtual cross section from the CAD model, are joined together or fused automatically to create the final shape. The primary advantage to additive fabrication is its ability to create almost any shape or geometric feature.

The standard data interface between CAD software and the machines is the STL file format. An STL file approximates the shape of a part or assembly using triangular facets. Smaller facets produce a higher quality surface.

Some solid freeform fabrication techniques use two materials in the course of constructing parts. The first material is the part material and the second is the support material (to support overhanging features during construction). The support material is later removed by heat or dissolved away with a solvent or water.

Technical advise:

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 industry.

With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout the jewelry manufacturing process from start to finish, we deliver quality.
