No, it’s a laser welding machine.
Something we’ve been contemplating purchasing for at least a year. A new ’tool’ a piece of equipment for price of a decent family car, but we knew it would serve us well in the long run.
Laser welding allows precious metals and many other alloys to be joined together without the use of solder or torches.
Laser welds are strong even in areas which are difficult to access with traditional joining technologies. The heat is very localised and using this technology it allows us to weld, to repair and join precious metals for example at close proximity to precious stones. Beforehand we would need to remove stones near a break or a join prior to the work being carried out, this was the only solution to avoid damage.
