   Orotig Laser Range

Other machinery on demonstration are the Italian made Orotig Laser range. The specialists will be out to showcase their ranges available:

The LASER-marker is a tool becoming almost indispensable to have in both the jewellery and industrial sectors. It is particularly useful for the marking of texts, logos, designs and graphic patterns. From serial numbering to photo engraving, the LASER-marker is perfect for customizing metallic objects or precious alloys. This model reaches new levels of quality and reducing significantly working time.

Main features of this new LASER-marker series include an integrated video camera which facilitates the viewing of the LASER-marking area, in order to position pieces better and ensure total control during the marking phase. An adjustable Z-axis facilitates the focusing of pieces in the marking area, thanks to the aid of two high clarity pilot diode-LASER. Powerful enough to cut up to 1.8mm depending on the model wattage.

Software allows you to import images, models, logos, texts etc., from a broad range of files with different extensions.

Curved surfaces are also no problem with the rotary axis device that can be fitted. Ideal for the inside or outside of rings and bangles. Flat surfaces are a breeze.

The Orotig machines are made in Italy are truly perfect for engraving and cutting all types of precious and semi-precious metals like platinum, gold and silver or base metals such as brass and copper.
