Whose eyes do not sparkle with joy when they think of beautiful wristwatches, necklaces or rings? It comes as no surprise, then, that the jewelry industry makes billions in sales worldwide. Many of these valuable pieces are castings, as they can be designed very freely.
However, the artisan approach combined with highest quality requirements from customers lead to repairs, material losses of precious metals, and unnecessary time and energy consumption amounting to several million dollars every day. It is therefore a great challenge for jewelry manufacturers to find a good compromise between perfect casting quality and cost efficiency.
