Milling machines let engineers and designers mill
3D prototypes quickly and inexpensively. They are
also used for creating a silicone
mold for jewelry design. Often jewelers will
use a milling machine for one purpose, to make waxes
used in investment casting. These machines are as
well able to mill in different materials, such as
metal. The milled parts are used as prototypes or
a models for lost wax casting/injection in the aerospace-,
medical parts- business.
machines can perform a vast number of operations,
some of them with quite complex tool paths, such as
slot cutting, planing, drilling, die sinking, rebating,
routing, etc. Cutting fluid is often pumped to the
cutting site to cool and lubricate the cut, and to
sluice away the resulting sward.
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
We offer reduced time and cost for jewelry designers
and their clients with state-of-the-art technology.
Our machines build silicon
molds from computer files using thermoplastics
that are perfect components for investment casting.

Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by translating
3d 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.
A milling machine is a machine tool used for the
shaping of metal and other solid materials. Its
basic form is that of a rotating cutter which rotates
about the spindle axis (similar to a drill), and
a table to which the work piece is affixed. In contrast
to drilling, where the drill is moved exclusively
along its axis, the milling operation involves movement
of the rotating cutter sideways as well as 'in and
out'. The cutter and work piece move relative to
each other, generating a tool path along which material
is removed. The movement is precisely controlled,
usually with slides and lead screws or analogous
technology. Often the movement is achieved by moving
the table while the cutter rotates in one place,
but regardless of how the parts of the machine slide,
the result that matters is the relative motion between
cutter and work piece. Milling machines may be manually
operated, mechanically automated, or digitally automated
via computer numerical control (CNC).
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.
Stereo lithography 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 industry.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
the jewelry manufacturing process from start to
finish, we deliver quality silicone
