The world of metal additive manufacturing is witnessing a transformative era with the advent of powder bed fusion technology, especially when it comes to working with gold alloys, gold powders, and other precious metals. Prima Additive stands at the forefront, pioneering solutions that harness the full potential of these materials, ensuring impeccable results for the jewelry industry and beyond.

Unleashing the Potential of Precious Metals

The unique properties of precious metals pose distinct challenges in additive manufacturing, notably their high reflectivity which results in suboptimal absorption for infrared lasers. Prima Additive's cutting-edge technology provides an answer to this obstacle. Our machines are equipped with state-of-the-art green lasers, emitting at a wavelength of 532 nm, ideal for processing reflective alloys with unparalleled quality and consistency. This optimal absorption ensures flawless execution in the creation of precious metal pieces.

Precision Engineering for Immaculate Jewels

The jewelry sector demands nothing less than geometric perfection, a prerequisite for truly enhancing jewelry design. Prima Additive's solutions, featuring green laser technology with a laser spot size of just 35 microns, offer extraordinary precision. This enables the crafting of intricate designs and detailed features in precious metals, previously unattainable with traditional manufacturing methods.

Achieving Unprecedented Material Density

A hallmark of Prima Additive's technology is its ability to achieve material densities nearing 99% on gold and precious metals. Such density ensures that the final product not only exhibits superior structural integrity but also allows for post-processing to achieve a polished finish indistinguishable from traditionally cast jewelry. This opens up new possibilities for incorporating complex geometries, lattice structures, and organic forms into jewelry designs, empowering creators to explore new dimensions of creativity.

Precious Metals Processable with Prima Additive Machines

Prima Additive's machines are versatile, capable of processing a broad spectrum of precious metals and alloys. Key materials include, but are not limited to:

  • Gold and its alloys, for creating luxurious and intricate jewelry pieces.
  • Silver, known for its aesthetic appeal and conductivity, perfect for both traditional and contemporary designs.
  • Platinum and palladium, offering exceptional durability and rarity for high-end jewelry.

Beyond the Basics: Expanding the Realm of Possibilities

While the aforementioned metals represent the tip of the iceberg, Prima Additive's technology does not stop there. Our machines are designed with open parameters, allowing them to work with any type of material made by any manufacturer. This opens up endless possibilities for jewelers and designers to innovate and explore new horizons in jewelry making.
