Legor companions with HP for metal 3D printing of jewelry and manner equipment

Legor claims it is ‘revolutionising’ the jewellery and style industries with its solutions and accessories that are designed via HP’s metal 3D printing. The multinational group, which was founded in Italy in 1979, specialises in the science of valuable metals at the service of the jewellery, vogue and electroplating industries.

The enterprise claims this ‘revolution’ is coming from its alloys, powders and galvanic solutions, which are produced from 100% treasured metals from recycled resources and integrated into the Chain of Custody, and as a result of its 3D Steel Hub. In the 3D Metal Hub, Legor is experimenting and developing jewelry and accessories from treasured and non-important metal powders with HP 3D printing.

Legor initial began doing the job with HP over five decades ago, and claims it is the initial enterprise to introduce HP Steel Jet 3D printing know-how to the luxurious and fashion accent marketplaces, to allow ‘efficient and higher-quality production’.

Legor says that with the enable of HP’s 3D printing knowledge, it has produced development to its targets of enabling a circular financial system, dashing up the time for medium scale output and bettering readily available solutions for its shoppers.

A key precedence of Legor has been to provide customers and associates the chance to get full gain of the Legor 3D Steel Hub. According to Legor, the hub is a centre designed to supply the prospect to experiment and create jewellery and fashion add-ons from cherished and non-important metal powders.

Legor Team CEO, Massimo Poliero explained: “The Legor 3D Metal Hub is an innovation centre for the experimentation and production of precious and non-treasured components combining the use of metallic powders with BinderJet know-how, an choice method to the classic casting, MIM (Metal Injection Moulding), or SLM (Selective Laser Melting), which will allow us to be not only extra innovative, but also additional sustainable.”

The Legor analysis and improvement section is also exploring new alternatives for 3D printing of precious metallic objects, this kind of as silver, and non-precious metal objects, these kinds of as bronze, in buy to allow medium scale production of elements at aggressive price ranges and with brief lead periods.
