Any Question About SuperbMelt Curb Chain Making Machine
FAQ Guide of Curb Chain Making Machine
1. What does the curb chain look like?
Speaking more about it, the curb is a classic and simple design of identical, interlocking, and flat links. If you look at the traditional design, you will find the links were large in size as there was no machine. But nowadays, you can easily more feminine and smaller curb chains. All thanks to a curb chain making machine of SuperbMelt. In terms of design, this chain can be categorized into:
- Based on link finishing- Milled curb, diamond cut the curb, and paved curb chains.
- Based on link shape- Open curb, closed curb and rounded curb chains.
- Based on the link formation- double curb and single curb.
- Consider link structure- Hallow curb and solid curb chains.
The Curb chain links are generally crafted from a round wire that was cut to size and then twisted carefully to create a link shape with distinctive grooves. The grooves let other curb link of the same length and depth to fit snuggly in the pocket. In simple, the structure includes distinct link shape with two grooves on each side of the chain, and the formation of one link paired with another.
The length of these chains may vary between 25 to 40 inches. For the choker-style chains, 14 to 20 inches curb chains will be a good option.
2. How is the curb chain produced?
Like other classic styles of chain links, which have created hundreds of years before the introduction of any gold chain production technology, the curb chains were used to crafted by hand. The jewelers process round wires that are cut and twisted using manual tools to form a link shape with grooves.
After that, these grooves allow other curb links with the same depth, length, and width to sit perfectly in the pocket. The pairing process is repeated until the desired length is achieved. This process takes more time and also requires a higher level of skills as well as creativity.
However, the modern method, i.e., the use of a curb chain making machine, has made the curb chain making the process faster and much easier. You don’t have to develop good technical skills to use the machine. Just feed a thin thread into the automatic chain making machine, and the machine will create the chain by bending, buckling, and welding the thin thread carefully as per the instructions. The machine enables you to enjoy an automated curb chain production process.
3. Which gold chains are the strongest?
Well, as per the experts, the durability or strength of the curb chains will greatly depend on the design and built quality. Rope, box, and wheat chains are thin, but they are durable. You can use them with a pendant without any issue. Wheat chains are made of intertwined twisted and untwisted oval-shaped links and formed a textured and durable design.
Made of interconnected square links, box chains are durable and sturdy. If you are looking for a heavy chain, then rope chains are there for you. You can use these chains for your weighty pendants. A rope chain is generally created by weaving metal links together into twisted spiraled chains. Curb chains are also durable, but you should buy a curb chain with a decent thickness to use for years.
4. What karat gold is best for chains?
Are you feeling confused between 18k gold or 24k gold? Jewelers use both 24k and 18k gold to make gold chains. But the most common gold is 18k gold. Speaking about the 24k gold, this gold is 100 percent pure. Such gold is easy to work with and highly malleable. As 24k gold is very soft, to use for making gold chains, you may need to combine it with other alloys such as copper. Well, you may find 24k gold-made curb chains, but they will be very costly and may require regular maintenance.
Now, talking about 18k gold, in this gold, there is 75 percent gold and 25 percent of alloyed metal. You can easily identify 18k gold by looking at its appearance, i.e., bright yellow color. 18K gold is perfect for necklaces, rings, and other jewelry pieces. If you are looking for something pure, then 18K gold is a good option.
While some alloying metals used in producing gold chains may develop allergic reactions, 18K gold-made chains will have a minimal or no effect. The reason is there will be a lower number of alloying metals, such as copper or nickel. Well, if you want to use both types of gold, don’t worry at all and use the gold chain making machine available at SuperbMelt.

5. How is chain welded in the production process?
It has been seen that most of the jewelers use two major methods to weld the curb chains or other gold chains. These are the plasma welding method and laser welding method. But which one should you use? Talking about plasma welding, this method strikes a plasma arc between the base material and electrode for welding. For plasma welding, you will have to use shielding gas as well as ion gas. For some jewelers, this method of welding can be very complex and time-consuming.
On the other hand, the laser welding process is very simple, precise, and fast. Here, the machine uses a powerful laser beam as a source of energy and joints the links without damaging the metal. Using a laser welding machine offered by SuperbMelt, you can enjoy a non-contact welding process. These machines are quite popular in high-precision manufacturing fields. So, to enjoy faster and quality curb chain welding, you can use SuperbMelt mini or desktop laser welding machines available at affordable prices.
