A laser welder is a state of the art technology that very few jewelers have, especially for use on easy onsite repairs, but also for manufacturing jewelry. This machinery utilizes a laser that melts specific metals at specific heats in order to solder two sides together seamlessly. It’s the same concept as soldering or fusing two pieces together, but it’s done without a solder and is incredibly precise.
Yes, very. Laser welding is very effective and precise. You can focus on the exact point that needs to be soldered together without damaging any of the surrounding areas, however it still creates a remarkably strong bond. Laser welding is great for pieces with certain gemstones or metals, because you can get close to that gemstone or metal without causing even the slightest bit of damage. The reason behind this is that traditional soldering isn’t as precise and heat is extreme, with a laser welder everything is controlled.
Surprisingly, no! The process is extremely quick and completed, more times than not, while you wait! Once the piece is repaired/soldered together the clean-up is just as quick, and your piece will look just as good as the day you purchased it.
