Jewelry manufacturers increasingly are integrating digital casting models into their production processes with a wide variety of machines and materials from which to choose. There is a significant body of evidence, both anecdotal and documented, indicating that digital model materials have varying degrees of success in casting. The root causes of related defects are not well understood, leaving the industry plagued with speculation and a variety of homegrown methods aimed at addressing these problems.
This presentation will share original research using controlled studies to understand the casting behaviors of several model materials, including an evaluation of dimensional movement experienced by these materials when subjected to firing. In addition, we will show how we track related casting defects to their root causes through observations of defect size and shape.
In this session, you will learn how to optimize product quality when casting with digital models, and
