Custom Molding Services
Our custom designed molding services include stamping molds and casting molds. The stamping molds are made of stainless steel and usually used for creating multiple duplicates a master jewellery piece. If you need to produce hundreds or more jewellery pieces with the same specifications for your jewellery collection, having a custom designed mold created by us may be ideal for you. We have our own stamping mold makers that produce molds based on your jewellery needs, efficiently and less costly.
The casting molds are made of rubber, used for items with a more three-dimensional effect but in a fewer quantity.
If you would like to find out what kind of molds you need for your particular design, please contact us to discuss your requirements. We will be happy to guide you in the best direction possible to your requirements.
Lost wax casting is a process by which molten metal is poured into a mold to create shaped items. First, many wax copies of the finished product are made using a rubber mold. Those wax copies are then arranged in a wax “tree” and placed in a short metal tube (called a flask) and a fast-drying plaster-like slurry (called investment) is poured into the flask, surrounding the wax tree. The flask is then fired at high temperature to harden the investment and burn out the wax. Once the flask has been fully fired, molten metal is poured into the now empty cavity in the still hot flask. Once the metal has hardened, the flask is submerged in water to dissolve the investment, leaving the metal tree of cast items which are then cut off the tree and polished.
