Traditional crafts and modern tools​

When manufacturing jewelry, a large number of various materials is used these days, particularly precious metals and alloys. Traditionally, the industry has always worked with various engravings ( produced mechanically) or with methods similar to glassetching
. In the past, a crucial reason to supply gold inlay engravings on costly items was to individualise them or to add a significant inscription. These days creative designs of jewelry pieces, inlcuding the world of fashion jewelry, have become progressively vital. With laser technology, precious metals similar to gold are often lasered as well as all other metals.

Suitable materials for laser processing

  • Precious metals such as gold, silver, etc.
  • alloys
  • glass (e.g., spectacles)
