How to Make Gold Bar Nowadays
Gold bullion is an irreplaceable form of precious metals for the market. Whether it is used as a raw material, investment product, or value reserve, its role is huge.
Regarding how to make gold bars, there are two types, traditional gold bar casting method and vacuum gold bar casting method.
The traditional gold bar making method is the most widely used, commonly found in miners or mining companies. Gold can be purified by heating gold to a certain temperature and turning it into a liquid, adding appropriate flux. After removing impurities, the gold liquid is directly poured into the mold and cooled to bars. After the gold is cooled and shaped, use a hydraulic press to logo and stamp the gold nuggets. Such gold nuggets can be used for marketing.
The casting of vacuum gold bar is usually done in a refinery because they usually need to produce gold bullion with very good surface quality and very bright. People usually prefer to buy such gold. When the refining is completed, the gold is placed in a granulator, through which it is made into small granules for weighing. Place the gold granules in the bar mold, and finally place the mold in the vacuum bar casting machine. Under the protection of vacuum and inert gas, it can avoid gold oxidation, shrinkage, and water ripples on the surface. After casting, place the gold nugget under the logo stamping machine to press out the required patterns and text. Then use dot peen marking machine to number the gold bars.

1.1, The Use of Gold and Silver Bars in The Market
In this bit of our discussion, we will take a look at the various users of gold and silver bars in the market. We will kick off the chapter by discussing some of the most essential uses of gold and silver bars as precious metals.
- Used for Gold and Silver Investment
Gold and silver investment is a huge industry that one needs to plan him/herself well before joining. If you are in aspiring investor in the industry of precious metals, most of the time, you will be using gold bars. Therefore, they form the basis of the entire operation. You will begin by understanding the processes involved in the gold bullion making, and how they can be used to grow the market.
- Used for Direct Sales of Gold and Silver Bars
Gold and silver are two different metals, but the only factor they have in common is the high value. However, while they occur naturally, they don’t do that in their pure form. Thus, they must undergo some changes to remove impurities so that they have the highest value possible. This brings us to the second-most important use of gold bars, which is to earn money through sales of gold in a form that can be used to produce other precious household or industrial products.
- Used as an International Reserve
Gold and silver bars are unique in every sense of the word. Therefore, they have to be used carefully lest they get depleted. However, it is unfortunate that their demand keeps going up while the main ores somehow are getting depleted. Therefore, despite the increase in the level of demand, some gold and silver have to be preserved for the future, better use. This explains the reason some gold and silver bars are used as an international reserve. Therefore, they are used to balance the payment of countries that hold them.
- Used as Jewelry of Industrial Raw Materials
There are many types of jewelries, and most of them are made from precious metals such as gold and silver. Therefore, it is obvious that gold and silver bars play a central role in ensuring that such products are available for customers who need them. Gold and silver are the few precious metals that have been there for several decades. Though traditional methods were used to mine the ores back then, the situation has changed thanks to improved technology. If you feel that this is the way to go, SuperbMelt has a starter kit that can keep you firmly on your journey toward success in this lucrative venture.
The first step in the process of making gold bars (if gold is being processed form gold ore) is that the ore must be extracted from the ground. After a gold-bearing deposit has been located, the gold is extracted by mining. In old times hydraulic mining was often performed – using high pressure water jets to mine, move and separate gold from deposits. However in modern times, explosives are used. Much of the ore from which gold is mined in modern times is not the “nugget-laden” ore one imagines from the old days of the gold rush, but is low grade ore. A ton of low-grade gold ore may only yield on average 6.5 grams of gold – however the high value of the gold still makes the operation worthwhile.
After the rock containing the gold has been mined, it is crushed to grains the size of sand. Next, gold is extracted from the crushed rock using a multi-stage process. The preliminary processing varies slightly depending on the quality and composition of the ore, but eventually the gold is dissolved from the ore using cyanide, in a process called leaching: A water and cyanide solution is added to the gold, which is then ground to a mud. The mud is agitated and air is bubbled through it, which causes the gold to react with the cyanide and dissolve. Zinc powder is added to the dissolved gold solution and the resulting solids collected.
Next, a flux is added, consisting of fluorite, manganese dioxide, silica, borax and sodium nitrate. At this point the mixture is put in a smelter and heated to 1600°C. After two and a half hours, the gold (being heavier) has settled to the bottom and the “slag” is removed. The molten gold is then poured into moulds and allowed to cool. The resulting ingots, known as gold are around 80% to 90% pure gold.
Making Poured Gold Bars
The next stage in the process is that the gold is refined to high purity (typically 99.9%, also known as “999 gold”, which is an international standard) by a gold refiner. This process typically employed for this purification by major bullion manufacturers is either electrolysis or pyrometallurgical chlorination.
Gold scrap – for example from old jewellery, jewellery manufacturers scrap, high-grade electronic scrap, dental gold scrap and old coins – is also re-refined and recycled using either electrolysis or pyrometallurgical chlorination.
With pyrometallurgical chlorination, (known as the “Miller Process”) chlorine gas is bubbled through the molten bullion. Base metals and silver react with the chlorine to form chlorides, which either form a slag on the surface of the melt or are volatilized. When the gold reaches around 99.5 to 99.7 percent purity, purple fumes of gold chloride wil begin to form and the process is halted.
After this, the gold is either treated with electrolysis of a wet chemical process. With electrolysis, (known as the Wohlwill Process) the gold is first cast and the resulting bars used as anodes in an electrolyte consisting of gold chloride / hydrochloric acid. When the electric current is passed, 99.99% pure gold is gradually deposited at the cathode and this is washed, dried and then melted so as to be poured into bars.
With the wet chemical process, which is performed when the gold produced by the Miller process includes Platinum Group Metals, the gold is dissolved using aqua regia (this is a mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acids). Any silver present forms silver chloride, which is insoluble and therefore precipitates. Most platinum group metals, such as titanium, iridium, ruthenium, tantalum, osmium and rhodium are insoluble in aqua regia – however platinum is not. It can however be separated from gold by virtue of the fact that gold has a lower melting point. Gold can also be precipitated by use of iron (II) chloride. Gold ultimately produced by electrolysis.
At the final stage, the gold is melted and poured into molds. The resulting bars are quenched in water and cleaned. A small sample may be taken from the bar for assay purposes.
Making Pressed Gold Bars
The first Pressed (“Minted”) gold bars were made in 1952 and the method is now a popular one for the manufacture of the smaller sizes of gold bar. Pressed gold bars are made from the high purity poured gold bars already described, however several further stages are required for their manufacture. Gold is poured into a continuous casting machine, from which long thin cast bars are made. These bars are then passed through a rolling mill and pressed multiple times to approximately the right thickness. During this process, annealing (softening) of the strips may be required.
After this, the strips are passed through a gauging mill, which is a precision machine that will bring the strips to the correct thickness (to within accepted tolerances). Next, blanks are punched from the strips. The blanks are again heated in a furnace in order to soften them and their weight is tested. Any underweight or overweight blanks are recycled, however blanks that are just slightly overweight can be rubbed down.
The blanks are then polished and cleaned, and are then struck in a similar manner to coins – with a die above and below. A collar is placed around the blank and the blank is pressed using very high pressure. The design (which has been created mirror image on the die) is transferred to the blank and the pressed gold bar is finished. The bars are inspected and packaged for shipping.
At SuperbMelt, we have the best technology that can help you produce top-quality gold and silver bars. We would like to introduce to you highly innovative machines such as Logo Stamping Machine, and Portable Dot Peen Pin Marking Machine. These are the top machines in the gold bar casting industry, and the good news is that we have them, just so that you get the best from one of the most reliable companies.
Let us now look at how to make gold and silver bars. First of all, we will begin by a comprehensive discussion of how to make gold bars, but more or less similar processes and machines are used to make silver bars.
3.1, Smelt for Pure Gold
As mentioned earlier, you will never find gold occurring in its natural ore in a pure form. And since you are looking to only produce and supply top-quality products, you must ensure that you smelt and remove impurity from your gold.
To begin the process, find out the amount of gold that you need to smelt. Note that while you will need to use an induction furnace, this step will help you choose which one of the best for you. Induction furnaces are available at SuperbMelt, and they are designed to smelt various amounts of gold. The higher the amount of gold, the more the energy you will need, and the larger the induction furnace you will have to employ.
Next, find the right crucible and put your gold ore right inside and place it inside the induction furnace of your choice. Power on your furnace and make sure the heat reaches 1064 degrees Celsius, which is the actual melting point of gold. For efficiency, you might go slightly beyond that temperature mark. To remove impurity, heat as you stir the liquid gold, and you will see impurities settling on top. Take out the crucible from the furnace and remove impurities. But back the gold and repeat the process until no more impurities settle on top of the liquid gold.
How to Refine Gold and Silver
Gold mines process ore using various techniques to produce an alloy composed primarily of gold and silver, which is called a bar. The composition of can vary significantly between mines, but generally the gold bars The Perth Mint processes are composed of between 70-80% gold and 10-15% silver.
bars are first weighed and melted to ensure the metal is homogenous, that is, that there are no pockets of high or low purity within the bar. A sample is taken from this melted and assayed to determine the exact amount of gold and silver present.
The miner then receives an outturn, which is a statement indicating the weight of the bar, the percentage of gold and silver in the bar, and from these two, a calculated amount of pure gold and silver. Miners will then either sell this pure gold and silver for cash. The bar then becomes the property of the refiner.
The bar first goes through a chlorine refining process, also known as the Miller process – originally developed at the Sydney Mint by Francis Bowyer Miller. It involves bubbling chlorine gas through the molten metal. Silver (and most other metals) react with the chlorine to form silver chloride as a slag on top. This process produces gold to a purity of 99.5%, which is usually cast directly into odd weight 400oz bars used in the wholesale markets.
The key output of the chlorine refining process is silver chloride, which enters a silver leaching process to remove the base metals. The silver chloride is then reduced to metallic silver and is then refined by electrolysis.
If there is demand in the market for higher purity gold, then the 99.5% pure gold from the chlorine refining process is cast into anodes to be used in the electrolytic refining process, also known as the Wohlwill process. The anodes are placed into a bath of hydrochloric acid and an electric current is passed through it, which causes the gold to dissolve and then deposit on a cathode at a purity of 99.99%.
The resulting cathodes are melted, granulated and the granules are then used to measure out exact weights of gold for casting into bar sizes from kilo (32.15 ounces) down to half ounce.
The composition of silver bars The Perth Mint processes are composed of around 90% silver and 10% gold. As with gold , the silver is weighed, melted, assayed and outturned.
The electrolytic silver refining process is similar to gold, except that the silver anodes are dissolved in a bath of nitric acid. The resulting cathodes are 99.9% pure silver. As with small gold bar production, these cathodes are melted, granulated and cast into retail sized bars (most common being 100oz or kilo).
3.2, Step2: Make Gold Granules
This is a process that we can comfortably help you with as long as you get in touch with our support team. Better yet, you can do it all by yourself as long as the right procedure is adhered to. Before you are able to cast the gold into bars, you will need to convert them into particles because this allows the compression to occur perfectly. These things can be made using our vacuum granulator.
The vacuum granulator is used to produce high quality and homogenous master grains and alloy grains, starting from raw material molten by induction heating in a protective atmosphere, and then poured into a water tank passing through a multi-hollowed crucible that acts as flow breaker.
The vacuum granulator adopts fully vacuum and inert gas melting and granulating, the machine can automatically stir in melting and the finished products have no oxidization, producing equal particles, good color and good sphere.
The vacuum granulator is especially suitable for the easily oxidized metals and alloys. Gold grains are usually made to facilitate weighing by making the weight of cast gold bar as accurate as possible.
3.3, Step3: Weighing and casting gold bars with an ingot machine
The vacuum bullion casting machine is designed for making quality shiny gold and silver bars with customized weight and size. Under the vacuum and inert gas protection，it perfectly solved the problems of gold oxidizing, shrinking, irregular shape, and wave surface in the making gold or silver bars.

3.4, Step4: Stamping logos on the gold bars
Superbmelt Logo Stamping Machine is specially developed for the matching of the gold ingot production line. It is mainly used for the embossing of various sizes of gold ingots.
Superbmelt Logo stamping machine is a hydraulic stamping machine that works by applying hydraulic or fluid pressure to a cylinder that is pressed against the object being pressed.

Press height, stroke, worktable size can be customized according to customer requirements. It can be equipped with cooling system, blowing device, pressure retaining device, pressure relay, force measuring display, PLC operating system. Also, you can use high precision CNC to make the mold.
There are relatively few real constraints on what you can cut on your milling machine, but there are several simple design strategies you should follow to keep the cutting process simple and quick, and make accurate, durable, and dimensionally accurate molds. Here’s the gist of it:
To speed up toolpath calculations, always choose straight lines over arcs when you can. For example, you may want to opt for simple, manually drawn shapes for mold cavities, or use chamfering instead of filleting to provide reliefs in places where aesthetics do not matter. This keeps the resulting 3D mesh a lot simpler, and can dramatically improve the speed of CAM work.
To simplify the cutting process, it’s good to maintain a reasonably consistent margin between each of the parts inside the mold, and between parts and the walls of the mold cavity. Use a distance that is slightly higher than the diameter of the tool entered for the roughing process.
To help with waterline cutting, it’s useful to align most of the vertical features present in the mold to 0.5 mm or so. This minimizes the need for selective remachining of individual parts.
When dealing with parts of vastly different part heights, it may be desirable to create several separate mold cavities, instead of trying to cram everything into a single one. Using a shallow cavity for all the small parts will often save you time and materials.
It’s preferable to avoid holes and slots that have a size exactly matching the diameter of the tool that will be used to cut them; due to rounding errors, such situations can confuse your CAM software, and make it hard to generate a valid toolpath. Allowing at least 1% wiggle room is a good idea.
Any small, deep holes that reach the very bottom of the master pattern should have their depth reduced by about 0.1 mm. This eliminates the risk that the resulting protrusion of the flexible negative mold will rub against the top cover used in the casting process, and deflect. The resulting 0.1 mm film is very easy to remove from the final part.
You need to allow some headroom between the top of the mold cavity, and the top of the tallest part laid out on the inside; this forms the bottom surface of the resulting negative mold. Allowance of around 2-3 mm is usually OK.
Deep molds (over 10-15 mm or so) benefit from draft angles on their outer walls (a slight slant, created using the offset and loft operators). Introducing several 5 mm deep pull tabs on the edges of the mold may be helpful, too.
Large-volume parts should use molds that are scaled up accordingly, and have more generous margins and headroom, to support the weight of the resin and the mold itself.
Well, that’s it. It may sound overwhelming, but once you catch a whiff of it, even remarkably complex multi-part molds are fairly easy to crank out. We’ll cover this and several other advanced design topics later on – but for now, let’s have some fun with polymers!
3.5, Step5: Dot peen number marking machine to mark serial numbers
Superbmelt dot peen marking machine is software-controlled marking peen that moves according to a specific guide rail in the X, Y two-dimensional plane. The marking peen performs high-frequency impact motion under the action of electric power, thereby engraving a mark with a certain depth on your product surface.
Superbmelt desktop metal marking machine is integrated design, extremely stable and easy to use, a good engraving depth, high speed direct parts marking, marking result clear, support some uneven surface marking.
The dot peen marking machine (SPB-DE) is mainly used for metal parts, cars and motorcycle parts, instrumentation, machinery, metal tag engraving, and other industries small and medium parts engraving and marking. In this case, it might not be possible to rely on the hydraulic press machine since it takes a lot of time to have the mold changed.
As already said, Vacuum Ingot Casting Machine is required since gold nuggets need to be refined to attain a good level of purity before using them to make gold bars. This is the very same method that is employed by Superbmelt to attain the bottom line. SuperbMelt uses induction furnace to heat and smelt the gold furnace amid the refinery process to ensure that the work is completed in time, and that quality is attained. Also, induction furnace is quite environmental friendly and can operate 24 hours nonstop. We have worked with clients from different parts of the globe such as Africa, South Africa, Australia, Dubai, the US, etc.

It is generally believed that the quality of a gold bar depends entirely on the gold bar casting method used in producing it. Over the years, different approaches for casting gold bars have emerged, from the traditional method to Induction Tunnel Systems. However, Vacuum Gold Bar Casting has turned out to be the most effective method, based on the positive feedback from users.
The traditional gold casting method was adopted in the earliest periods of the gold-rush years, and it is very much the same method utilized in several parts of the world, most especially where there is limited access to the latest gold bar making machines or technology.
May I cast Gold Bars of Different Sizes and Weights in the Machine?
This is very easily possible. At Superbmelt, making gold bars is what we pride in. Therefore, we are here to ensure that everything is possible.

From the descriptions above, these are not precisions that you can achieve with traditional casting methods. Our ingot making processes are accurate and professional to ensure that you attain the market strength you deserve as a gold and silver dealer.
What is the Production Cost of Vacuum Bar Casting Machine?
The cost of production of this highly innovative bar casting machine depends on a number of important factors. For instance, before you begin the application process, you will have to know the amount of gold or silver, you intend to cast into bars. Note that this will add to the overall cost of production, irrespective of who is doing the job. You will also need to calculate the amount of power you will need, and whether you will be employing people to do the work on your behalf. From what has been said above, it might not be possible to come up with a precise budget for your production process. However, SuperbMelt is there to help you reduce the cost of production through discounts and pocket-friendly prices. If you are not sure about any of these, you can go to our website and check out what we have in store for you.
Could We Produce High Gloss Bullion In Your Vacuum Gold Bar Casting Machine?
This is possible, but you will have to do us a favor. To get pure bullion, you have to ensure that your gold is pure (24k gold) without a single impurity. Also, the other reason this is possible that our vacuum cuts of the air. In that case, you will get a gold bar with a surface that shines like that of a mirror. However, if there are impurities, we can advise you on how to get rid of them so that you end up with a pure gold bar for your production or marketing purposes. Our main aim is to see that you are happy with our services. Since you might not be aware of other things, as long you strike a deal with us, we will help you learn everything that you need to know about gold and silver bar casting.
Could I Get 999 Purity Gold Bar In Your Machine?
This is mainly determined by the nature of your raw material. SuperbMelt would like to inform you that gold bullion making is a different process compared to the refinery procedure. In addition to that, our vacuum casting machine does not refine your raw material. However, we can help you refine it if you are interested in such services. Therefore, you only get 999 purity gold bars if you give us a raw material that is extremely pure. To avoid disappointing our clients, we normally let them know these things before we start casting their gold and silver into bars. If the raw material is 999, then the finished product is also 999 and will not be subject to any pollution
How to Install and Use Your Machine? Could You Come to Our Factory for Service?
This is an important question that deserves absolute honesty. Therefore, to be honest, we will always provide a user manual and video that can help with the installation process. Our videos are top quality, and we are confident that if followed to the letter, the installation process will be 100% successful. However, if you are not sure, we can provide an onsite engineer. And just to let you know, you will be responsible for Visa, round-trip air ticket, accommodation, local transportation, and salary. But we don’t think you need to do all this because the videos and manuals we provide are comprehensive and all-inclusive.
What kind of Gas Do We Need for Protection in the Vacuum Casting Machine?
Argon and Nitrogen are all okay to ensure that you are safe amid application. Other than that, you need to have on the right protective equipment just in case an accident occurs in the workplace. We don’t mean to say this is a normal occurrence, but it is good to stay safe, right? Otherwise, our machine works perfectly well as long as the right measures are accorded to in every level of application. If you have any questions, always feel free to get in touch with our support team at any time of the day. Most companies and investors in precious metals prefer bars to coins since they are easier to stack. Also, most of them have lower premium compared to their sovereign coin counterparts. At SuperbMelt, we have some of the best solutions, which is why you need to contact us before investing in casting gold bars.
How is Gold Bar Made?
Can be made in two ways; traditional or modern way. Modern way uses latest technology to refine gold nuggets to make them very pure. But the traditional ones are not very pure, so cannot be used to make items such as jewelries.
Do gold bars have serial numbers?
They do come with serial numbers that are professionally stamped by the refineries from which they came.
How do I get a 24k Gold?
Because gold is an element, it cannot really be made. However, gold can be refined to the 24K level. Gold found in nature, scrap gold from industry or jewelry less than 24K has other metals mixed, or alloyed, with it. It is possible to refine the gold through a chemical process.
Can I melt my own gold?
With an induction furnace or oven, you can melt your own gold at home. You also need to have protective equipment to protect yourself from possible accidents.
Does melting gold purify it?
It is impossible to purify gold by just melting it. There are some chemical processes involved to ensure that purity is achieved. Melting can only be done to get gold in the right state to make purification possible.
How much gold do you lose when you melt it down?
Not much if ever when melting. Then you can lose very negligible amount of metal but it difference from job to job. There are some jewelers that claim that about half of the metal gets lost, if anyone ever tells you this story please leave they place immediately because this is one of the signs of dishonesty.
How do you melt and purify gold
To purity gold, it is placed in a crucible and put inside an induction furnace where it is melted and impurities removed using the right techniques. In this case, induction furnace acts as the machine used to change solid gold to aqueous gold.
Can you melt gold without flux?
Use flux to remove impurities from the gold. Flux is a substance that is mixed with the gold before melting it. It is often a mixture of borax and sodium carbonate. You need more flux if the gold is impure. When you heat it, it forms sodium carbonate.
What does borax do to gold?
Everybody has always used borax (and other fluxes) to melt gold concentrates. It makes some impurities tiny bits of other minerals melt at a lower temperature and become thinner so that the mineral melt, a molten glass slag, and the molten gold can be separated easily.
Is melting gold illegal?
If you have been contemplating melting gold, nothing should stop you since the activity is 100% legal in most countries. If you are not sure how to go about the melting process, consider talking to superbmelt.
