Why SuperbMelt Ball Chain Making Machine
Any Question About SuperbMelt Ball Chain Making Machine
FAQ Guide of Ball Chain Making Machine
1. What does the ball chain look like?
Speaking about the ball chains, they are also called bead chains. These chains don’t have links created out of wire-like other chains. If you look at the design of the chains, you will find that they have two parts, these are Hollow beads and wire rods. Here, the wire is properly inserted into the beads, and then using a machine, they are bent to create a durable lock.
One of the most common accessories used in ball chains is connectors. They are used to properly connect two end sections of the chain to create a look. Some ball chains come with a fragile construction, but some have solid links that you can use to wear with pendants.
In terms of size, the diameter can range from .72″ to 5/8,” and the average balls per foot can range more than 100 based on the design of the chain. One of the most widely used materials for making ball chains is steel. But nowadays, you can find them made of gold, silver, copper, titanium, and other precious metal.
All thanks to the best ball chain making machine. This type of jewelry chain is quite popular in the USA and Asian countries. If you want to start your own ball chain manufacturing business, then don’t worry at all and get a gold chain making machine offered by SuperbMelt to start production.
2. How is the ball chain produced?
You can use two common methods to make a ball chain, i.e., handmade and using an advanced gold chain manufacturing machine. Speaking about the handmade process, first, small beads or balls are created using molds. Besides, you need to create durable gold wire rods. Once done, you need to insert the wire into the beads and bend them. Now the wire will not slide out of the hole. After that, you also need to polish the surface of the chain manually to give it a shiny look. Well, this manual process is very time-consuming, and there is no guarantee that the result will be up to the mark.
Now, talking about the second method, you can create a chain faster using SuperbMelt’s jewelry chain manufacturing machine. Our machine is very easy to use and can effectively automate some processes. To make a ball chain using the machine, first, you need to create a gold sheet. Once done, insert the wire into wire drawing machine. The rolling mill will convert the wire into thin sheet. Now all you need to insert the sheet into the ball chain making machine. The machine will cut, bend and weld into sturdy ball chain.
3. Which gold chains are the strongest?
There is no doubt that wearing a gold chain is the best way to uniquely accessorize your overall appearance. But why? Well, gold chains are timeless pieces and will perfectly go with different outfits and styles. However, while buying one, you need to make sure that you are getting the most durable type of chain. As per the experts, the style of your chain can play a great role in ascertaining durability.
Keeping this factor in mind, it can be said that box chain, wheat chain, curb chain, Figaro chain, rope chain, and mariner chains are some of the most durable chains that you can use. Speaking about some weakest chain types, these are snake chains, omega chains, herringbone chains, and ball or bead chains. However, using the modern jewelry chain making machine, you can now produce durable ball chains without affecting the look. For good quality and budget-friendly machines, you can have a look at the product available at SuperbMelt.
4. What karat gold is best for chains?
Gold is the best material to make stunning pieces of jewelry. But sometimes, 100 percent pure gold is combined with other metals, such as zinc, nickel, copper, and silver, to attain a perfect level of strength, and you can easily craft necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. But which karate is best, 18K or 24K?
24K gold is 100 percent pure and the best to buy. But this gold is very soft and tends to bend very easily. So, creating jewelry chains or other gold items using 24K god will be a challenging task. Well, some have found a way to use this gold, and they are now using a chain making machine to process such gold, but it can be a little costly.
Now talking about 18K gold, it is 75 percent gold and comes combined with other alloys. This karate gold will be less expensive compared to 24K gold. Processing the 18K gold is very simple and perfect for making different types of gold chains, including ball chains. Our machine can process both 24K and 8K gold.
5. How is chain welded in the production process?
In general, you can go for laser welding and plasma welding when it comes to welding a chain, including a ball chain. If you compare them both, you will find that plasma welding is a very difficult, labor-intensive, and time taking welding process. Under this process, you need to use a powerful beam and gasses during welding. So, is there any cost-effective chains welding method?
Yes, you can go for the laser welding process. This method is very precise. All you need to place the chain inside the machine and then apply the beam using a guided laser tube. As you don’t have to use any gas or other tools, it offers faster welding process. Laser welding has a smaller heat affected zone compared to plasma welding as there will be no material contact. The laser beam as well as lower heat prevent spatter from occurring. In case of high-volume production, you will find it most effective.
If you are in search of a quality laser welding ball chain making machine, then SuperbMelt has some best options for you.
6. What machines are used to process raw materials into ball chains?
Here are the machines that you can use to process raw materials to make quality ball chains.
