LEARN-TO: Laser Welding

Date: Friday 31 March, 2023

Start Time: 10.00AM

End Time: 1.00PM

We are delighted to welcome Tony Dellow back for two more introductory laser welding workshops.

Tony Dellow was one of the first adopters of the laser welder in the Hatton Garden jewellery trade, so you are in extremely good hands! You will be guided through the different output settings for various requirements to assist in the manufacturing and repair of jeweller where soldering may not be an option. You will practice attaching an earring post, repairing a claw in a diamond ring, weld a shank and laser a chain link!

At the end of the workshop you will have a good understanding of how to use the machine safely and effectively. You will learn on our Master 4.0 laser welder which is available to FORGE CLUB members to book and use.

Freeform Fabrication will once again be supporting this workshop with the DaDo machines. The advantage of a DaDo laser welder is its small size and price, whilst still being able to undertaken common applications such as secure jump rings, fix porosity, resize rings, re-claw and re-tip efficiently and with precision.
