Italian jewellery manufacturer BMC has teamed up with the UK’s biggest jewellery-making supplier Cooksongold to offer a 3D precious metal printing service.
Leading the way in Italy’s 3D printed precious metal sector, BMC’s adoption of the ‘Precious M 080’ will enhance its Specialised Services and Products operation, by offering a complete 3D precious metal service.
The Precious M 080 system – the first Direct Precious Metal 3D Printing system designed exclusively for the jewellery, watch and precious metals industries – is jointly optimised by Cooksongold and EOS (Electro Optical Systems). The system expands upon the technology created by EOS to provide jewellery makers with the power and freedom to create complex jewellery in a matter of hours.
“We are always looking to incorporate the latest technology and production possibilities; Direct Precious Metal 3D printing with the M 080 system provides us with another tool and production method which will ensure we can continue to push the boundaries of jewel and watch creation,” commented Carlo Massavelli, CEO and chairman at BMC.
Cooksongold MD Martin Bach, added: “We are delighted to be working with BMC for the development of precious metal 3D printing to fully exploit its capabilities and production application in the high end jewellery supply chain.”
