Legor Group operates in the gold jewellery market, offering the customer one single reference point for the most complex problems connected with jewellery and fashion production processes with a particular focus on production and materials technology. It is therefore also a specialist consultant in metallurgy and materials engineering for sectors that use allied processes.
Legor Group also promotes new technologies like Powder Laser Melting, which gives the creativity of the designers absolute freedom and allows prototyping and production of objects directly from 3D drawings. For this technology Legor Group has designed and developed a line of ultra-fine metal powders in gold, silver, bronze and steel which will allow the creation of any type of object for different applications, both industrial and non-industrial.
Legor Group guarantees the advantage of one single reference point with specific professional expertise and a technological know-how which is one of the most innovative and advanced in the jewellery industry.
Legor Group makes available to its customers a lost wax casting and Powder Laser Melting technology laboratory with competences running right through the Group’s divisions; it is therefore able to offer practical high-level consulting in all the reference sectors.
The services offered include quality lost wax casting in gold, silver and non-precious alloys, CAD/CAM modelling to specifications, ultra-light castings, design and prototyping with both traditional and PLM technologies, rubber preparation, production of waxes and trees, production of flasks.
The laboratory is also involved in research testing and intense group training activity, with the workshops and process training sessions becoming showcases for use of the Legor Group products.
Legor Group places scientific research and technological innovation at the centre of its strategies for sustainable development. The research and development activities are organised into projects which involve all the divisions according to the needs and trends identified on the market and according to progress which requires new materials or process optimisations.
The ability to innovate is testified by the company’s wide-ranging patent portfolio which currently comprises approximately 30 patents.
External collaborations form an integral part of our innovation strategy and represent one of its strengths. Collaboration with the academic world and the world of research enables us to integrate our in-house technical and scientific expertise and to face the most important challenges with a multidisciplinary approach and clear objectives, identifying original solutions.
Constant monitoring of and comparison with the technologies of other sectors and centres of excellence is a necessary activity to guarantee the quality of our research. For this purpose we aim to create even stronger and more structured links with the world of research and the experts with whom we already work, and make even more of the wealth of knowledge and competences provided by the JTF, Jewelry Technology Forum; this is an internationally known forum which every year plays host to the world’s top representatives in the field of production technologies for gold jewellery and allied products.
