While women prefer to go for a thinner chain, main generally choose a box chain at a width of 1.5 mm. Different materials such as silver, gold, and platinum can be used to make a box chain using a jewellery chain making machine.
2. How is the box chain produced?
There are two different methods you can follow to make a box chain. These are handmade and using a chain manufacturing machine. Under the handmade process, the jewelers hammer the desired metal to convert them into strips. Then they process the strip through different dies to give it a perfect shape. After that, they create a box shape design using the wire.
Then the boxes are interlocked using the welding or soldering process. The handmade process is very time-consuming. But now, you can use a box chain making machine to create a box chain faster. All you need to feed the silver or gold pieces into the machine, and the machine will carry out the task automatically. It will cut, bend, buckle and weld the gold or silver sheet to create durable box chains.
3. What karat gold is best for chains?
To make chains, you can use 18K and 24K gold. If you want to make an affordable gold chain, then you can use the 18K gold. Here the gold amount will be a little lower than the 24K gold. 24K gold is 100 percent pure and soft. However, some jewelers have mastered techniques to make 24K gold more rigid and make a box chain from that.
4. How is chain welded in the production process?
You can use laser welding or plasma welding process to weld chains in the production process. The plasma welding process is a little complex, and it uses a plasma arc high energy density beam. The electrodes utilized in plasma welding are tungsten electrodes, and sometimes, you may need to use different gasses during the process.
But the laser welding is much better than the plasma welding process. This modern welding method is quite popular among jewelers. The method is very precise, and it utilizes a high energy density laser beam. You can use our mini laser welding machine to enjoy a smooth jewelry chain welding process. The physical metallurgical process is similar to electron beam welding.
Well, if you want to enjoy faster gold chain production efficiency, then you can always trust a laser welding machine. It welds the material directly through the beam without using any gasses. The machine can produce continuous laser beams to create a good connection of material.
5. What machines are used to process raw materials into box chains?
