State-of-the-art Laser Welding

We now offer the latest in high tech
jewelry fabrication and repair with a
state-of-the-art Laser Star laser
welding system.  A very expensive
piece of equipment, there are only
3 or 4 laser welders in all of Placer
County.
 
This gives us the ability to offer
expert repairs on items that, up until now, have
been nearly impossible to work on. 
 
Laser welding is the process of
using amplified light to weld metals
instead of the traditional way of
soldering with a torch.
 
That may not seem like a big deal,
but it really is.  The advantages
are many.  The laser beam itself
is so precise, and the heat so
localized, that repairs can be made
close to heat sensitive stones.
There is no solder in a laser
welded repair joint so they are
much stronger than traditional
repair joints made using a torch.
 
Also, we can now repair many
things that were previously
unrepairable, like eyeglasses
and costume jewelry.
 
The addition of the laser welder
is just one more thing that allows
us to serve you better!
