Casting EquipmentCasting equipment includes sand, charcoal, cuttlefish bone, kilns, and centrifugal machines. Casting enables the jeweler to make molds for jewelry designs that can be supported with sheet metal or wire.
Duplication EquipmentDuplication equipment is ideal for jewelers who want to create more than one of the same designs. In order to duplicate jewelry, the designer must first make a mold. To make the mold, metal model and rubber materials is put into a metal frame, then heated in a vulcanizer. The finished material is a solid rubber block. The metal model is removed from the rubber block, leaving an impression that is ready to accept warm wax.
To make identical models of the original model, the jeweler makes wax models by using a wax injector to inject liquid wax into the rubber mold. The hardened wax model can then be used for additional models.
