Jewelry Exchange Acquires New Technology

TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 15, 2011) - The Jewelry Exchange has acquired new technology, the Perfactory®, for their casting and design department. The machine, a Perfactory® 4 Mini XL with ERM is the latest in prototype, or wax mould, manufacturing. The Jewelry Exchange is the first jeweler in Southern California to use the technology and they anticipate much higher quality products to come from their casting department as a result of the acquisition.

The Perfactory® uses a new photo polymerization based on mask projection and rapidly manufactures multiple prototypes at once with the finest details using Direct Light Projections (DLP®) technology. Other manufactures are still using wax injectors which leave lines and flaws in the moulds which later have to be corrected by hand. The moulds from the Perfactory® have much more detail and are more accurate, eliminating this extra process. According to Ashkan Tahvildaran, head of the design team at the Jewelry Exchange, this means that the finished product will be of the highest quality and get to the showcases much faster.

The Jewelry Exchange is owned by Goldenwest Diamond Corporation who also owns and operates the Jewelry Factory and the Jewelry Source.

The Perfactory® is a registered Trademark of EnvisionTec.
