about our Products & Service
Because of the high cost of a rapid
prototyping machine and the high level of technical
expertise required to reliably produce perfect parts,
the trend is to use specialized third-party service
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.
3D printing is a unique form of printing that is
related to traditional rapid prototyping technology.
A three dimensional object is created by layering
and connecting successive cross sections of material.
3D printers are generally faster, more affordable
and easier to use than other additive fabrication
technologies. While prototyping
dominates current uses, 3D printing offers tremendous
potential for retail consumer uses. Each technology
has its advantages and drawbacks, and consequently
some companies offer a choice between powder and
polymer as the material from which the object emerges.
Generally, the main considerations are speed, cost
of the printed prototype, cost of the 3D printer,
choice of materials, color capabilities, etc.
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.
Standard applications include design visualization,
prototyping/CAD, metal casting, architecture, education,
geophysical, healthcare, entertainment/retail, etc.
Other applications would include reconstructing
fossils in paleontology, replicating ancient and
priceless artifacts in archaeology, reconstructing
bones and body parts in forensic pathology and reconstructing
heavily damaged evidence acquired from crime scene
3D printing technology is currently being studied
by biotechnology firms and academia for possible
use in tissue engineering applications where organs
and body parts are built using inkjet techniques.
Layers of living cells are deposited onto a gel
medium and slowly built up to form three dimensional
structures. Several terms have been used to refer
to this field of research: Organ printing, bio-printing,
and computer-aided tissue engineering among others.
Resolution is given in layer thickness and X-Y resolution
in dpi. Typical layer thickness is around 100 micrometres
(0.1 mm), while X-Y resolution is comparable to
that of laser printers. The particles (3D dots)
are around 50 to 100 micrometres (0.05-0.1 mm) in
The use of a rapid prototyping machine technologies
allow the replication of real objects without the
use of molding techniques, that in many cases can
be more expensive, more difficult, or too invasive
to be performed; particularly with precious or delicate
cultural heritage artifacts.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
the jewelry manufacturing
process from start to finish, we deliver quality.
