If you design jewelry and use outside contractors to produce it, you need to be at this session. You'll receive important guidance from production experts (list) that will improve your production outcomes. From design considerations to final finish and everything in-between, learn the pro tips that will make your partnerships with casters, platers, and jewelers more productive - and more enjoyable! - with higher quality outcomes.


Introduction: the galvanic process

After a short introduction on the basic principles of the galvanic process, this work will focus on the aspects that feature in a good quality galvanic plate: respecting the characteristics of the plating bath parameters, of the chemistry of the electrolyte solution and the preparatory phases of the electro-plating process. Lastly, the types of defects most commonly found on galvanic plating and their most frequent causes will be examined.


Mechanical processing: focusing on critical points

This piece aims to concentrate on a few fundamental aspects as to why the plastic deformation of an alloy is so important in the gold smithery production world and then exemplify typical errors which occur in production, triggering a chain of problems which are difficult to correct at the end of the process. The aim of this piece is to accompany participants along a few logical paths they may find useful for thinking over certain cause/effect aspects pertaining to the plastic deformation production process. One of the most common cases of defects in mechanical processing is obtaining semi-finished products with fragility or residual tension issues, with individual or a combination of causes and which may sometimes be difficult to pin-point. On average, current processes are also more complex than even a decade ago, due to their greater complexity or more stringent quality controls.
