3D Printing in Gold, Silver and Platinum.
** Due to the price volatility of precious metals during the Corona Virus outbreak we have suspended this service **
3D print your designs in 18 karat Gold using our DMLS \ SLM additive manufacturing service.
Additive manufacturing in Gold uses the DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) or SLM process. A very fine metal alloy powder is melted with a laser to produce your design layer by layer. Once your design is complete any support structures are removed and any finishing completed. Unused powder is recycled for use on the next model.
18K Gold can work out more cost effective than traditional 'subtractive' for fabrication processes, especially where you have complex or intricate designs that would be impossible or difficult to produce otherwise.
Our 18 karat Gold offers you outstanding electrical and thermal conductivity. Conceived the the jewellery industry 3d printing in gold also offers design opportunities to engineers and scientists working in pure research.
Jewelry and watch manufacture plus pure research, electronics including wave guides and antennas..
