Laser welders concentrate heat in a very specific, defined area, reconfiguring the molecular structure of either similar or dissimilar metals at the point of welding, allowing the two common alloys to become one.
What are the benefits of laser welding?
In recent years, laser welders have revolutionized the jewelry industry. With their pinpoint heat source, laser welders can be used in close proximity of heat sensitive stones and materials without adversely affecting the stone or material. By using a laser welder, jewelers can produce a higher quality product in less time with fewer materials.
How do we use the laser welder?
We have found our laser welder to be invaluable! From adding a charm to filling porosity, our laser welder is Russ' favorite tool. He can now re-tip and resize platinum, gold and silver pieces without having to remove the stones. In some cases, Russ can even do on-the-spot simple repairs.
