Production cast in silver and pewter


#1

I have been working on some pieces that I would like to have
production cast in silver and pewter. Can anyone point me in the
right direction. I’ve never done this before, only having done my
own lost wax or fabrication. But I have something I’d like a large
number of. Thank you!

He does great work in sterling, but you’ll have to ask about the
pewter.

I am a small designer who has started doing wholesale shows in the
past 6 months with good success. I am looking for someone who can
make production pieces off of my samples as well as do some samples
off my technical drawings. The production of each piece is limited,
probably no more than 10 pieces/design.

Thank you!

In reply to the above question… We do sterling silver…,
Green,Yellow,white,red golds in 14k , 18k ,22K as well as
Brass,Bronze, White brass and pewter…

Pewter is a completely different method of production than any of
the other metals above and require different parameters
/models/molds etc.

Our production is devoted to manufacturing cast /or finished (
mostly finished) products for designers, model makers, individuals
who are in business as well as Jewelry stores that primarily do
their own custom jewelry designs.

We also solder findings , make models, molds, CNC models 2 part
enameling /colored epoxy work for our in house customers.

If you are looking for help in any of these areas, Please give us a
call

I have a low relief carving that I would like to replicate on a small
scale. That is from a low relief carving about 8" x 5" reduced to a
carving about 15mm x 12mm. Is this possible? I have no idea if this
is in the realm of CAD. I have no knowledge of CAM.

Anyone out there in Orchid land who would like to take on this job?
You may respond on line or off line as you please.

This is the sort of job the Roland MDX-20 does really well. It has a
piezo-electric needle probe to (slowly) capture the 3d detail, and a
milling spindle to carve out the reduced copy. All the software you
need to do this is included with the machine. You don’t need to know
anything about 3d modeling, or much about CAM; the milling process is
treated like a print job.

If you bought one of these machines you could do this sort of thing
for yourself (and I sell them at a discount), but I could probably do
it for you on mine, if you’d prefer. This would get you a master
reduced relief you could take to a casting house for production in
quantity.
