Contemporary jewellery design and manufacture requires state-of-the-art-tools, and there is no tool like the laser. ROFIN offers solutions for any kind of laser application in the jewellery industry – starting with a family of manual welding lasers to lasers and systems for cutting, marking, engraving or mass production welding.
Laser welding of precious metals offers high quality invisible joining in platinum, palladium, gold, silver, titanium and other jewellery metals. Using filler wires of the same material, strong joints can be achieved without compromising quality or speed. Repair of damaged jewellery without unsetting heat-sensitive stones makes the task easier and faster by laser. Antique pieces can be repaired with only local heating, thus preserving the quality and appearance of the item. Typical applications for laser welding in the jewellery workshop include:
- Porosity removal from cast platinum pieces
- Ring sizing in platinum without any visible line
- Retipping and repairing claws
- Contemporary stone setting
- Antique jewellery repair in silver and other metals
Laser cutting of thin sheet gold and silver is increasingly required to make fine jewellery items. ROFIN has a selection of systems to meet your challenge.
Laser marking and engraving of rings or flat components gives the level of customization and personalization required by the discerning customer without compromising on quality. Easy to use software, compact and efficient systems are now virtually maintenance-free. Used in Hallmarking or decorative engraving with unlimited depth, the laser is the tool of choice for automated engraving of medals, rings and personalisation with the owner’s details.
