Laser Wire

Laser wire is used in laser welding machines to repair or alter jewellery pieces that require small or delicate changes.

The laser welder creates a concentrated amplified light beam that intensely heats the metal it is targeted towards. Laser wire of the same alloy can then be introduced to complete the repairs or alterations.

The small diameter of laser wire makes it well suited to melt quickly and complete the job accurately with minimal waste.

Laser welders have become a popular and useful tool for jewellers in recent years, with benchtop units becoming more affordable and easier to use.

Repairs completed using a laser welder can produce tidy and barely visible joins and seemless spot repairs with a matching alloy rather than using the traditional methods that use solders.

Some common tasks jewellers use laser wire and laser welders for include:

  • Repairing damage such as cracks or holes in castings
  • Joining components such as settings and shanks
  • Repairing items that contain stones without removing them
  • Delicate detailed surfaces such as engraved or filligree

Morris and Watson fabricates laser wire in 0.2mm, 0.3mm and 0.5mm diameters, across most alloys and colors. There is a 5 gram order minimum for alloys and gauges not held in stock which need to be fabricated on demand.
