Directly Printing Gold & Some Upcoming Events

Cooksongold will be exhibiting at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair next week, demonstrating the capabilities of the first direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology designed specifically for the jewellery and watch-making industries. The Precious M080 3D printing system, which prints directly in gold and eliminates the need for wax models, moulds or casting, will be on show at the event running from 11th – 15th September.

Precious M-080 3D PrinterThe Precious M080 printer incorporates a unique cartridge-based system that ensures retention of the precious metal powders and allows for savings in both time and money. And who doesn’t want that? Developed as a result of the partnership between Cooksongold, supplier of precious metals for jewellery and watch-making, and EOS, a global leader in DMLS technology, the Precious M080 provides a unique ‘end-to-end’ e-manufacturing solution for this vertical sector.

For anyone visiting the Hong Kong event, the gold 3D printer can be found in Hall 11 Stand V28 and Stand S20. For anyone not in the region, but with a specific interest, the system will also be on show at TCT later this month (Birmingham, UK), the 3D Printshow in November (London, UK) and Euromold end of November, beginning of December (Frankfurt, Germany).

Did I mention that it’s silly season for 3D printing events. For anyone interested in my diary, I’m looking at TCT, Inside 3D Printing Singapore, 3D Printshow London (want to do Paris, but can’t) and Euromold. Shout out if you’ll be there and/or want to meet up. 3DPI will also have people covering Inside 3D Printing in San Jose and World Maker Faire in New York.
