Laser micro-machining

Cost Effective Laser Jewelry Manufacturing and Repair Solutions from Coherent at Vicenzaoro T.GOLD 2020

December 2019

At Vicenzaoro T.GOLD (January 17 - 22, 2020, Vicenza, Italy), Coherent will once again showcase a range of systems which offer advanced functionality and exceptional ease-of-use, thus providing jewelers and goldsmiths with better and faster results, while also lowering their costs. In pavilion 9, booth 30, Coherent will present a range of products from manual welders to fully automated manufacturing systems.

Desktop and Performance series manual welding systems: these products enable the user to achieve the unmatched quality of laser welded joints, yet are easy and fast to use. They can process a variety of materials, including silver, gold, platinum, titanium, and steel. The Desktop is a compact system that takes up minimal space, and is ideal for repair and short run production use. Performance series are full size systems which offer the next step up in terms of flexibility, control and capabilities, as well as the ability to accommodate longer or bulkier workpieces. Performance products offer a range of advanced technologies and convenience features, such as SweetSpot Resonator assuring constant weld quality from the very first pulse, SPEEDmode increasing the maximum pulse frequency significantly, Dynamic Foot Switch providing an intuitive control of welding speed or strength on-the-fly, and XE-Power package including various extra features to empower the process. This makes it easy to achieve virtually perfect welds on metals and alloys, including highly reflective ones. Plus, heavy duty construction makes Performance systems production workhorses which can operate in demanding, 24/7 manufacturing environments.

EasyJewel laser engraving system: a compact, desktop system that marks and engraves – even in 3D – metals, alloys, polymers, as well as ceramics with unmatched quality and consistency. It features SmartView an integrated camera system that allows the operator to visualize precisely where the mark will be placed before processing, thus ensuring successful results. A Ring Marking Module simplifies the task of creating sophisticated, distortion free marks on either the inner or outer radius of rings or other curved parts.

The product portfolio is rounded off by the ExactCut, an automated fiber laser-based cutting, CNC controlled micromachining system that combines precision mechanics and an easy-to-use software interface to enable cutting of virtually any metal, as well as sapphire. ExactCut provides an efficient way to cut even complex geometries into parts with excellent edge quality. Its software interface facilitates rapid changeovers making it a cost-effective solution for short production runs.

Coherent has become a leading innovator in laser-based systems for jewelry production and repair. In fact, the company has sold over 10,000 systems, and is the laser manufacturer with the longest history and greatest experience in the jewelry and goldsmithing businesses.
