Hello to all readers of the forum. In this topic I would like to introduce you to some manufacturing techniques, unfortunately, still not widely used.
They concern a modern technique (laser welding) coupled to an older (Lapping Grinder machine). The welding is used to add material in bruises, in the most
deep scratches and in the parts ruined by polishers that usually are not accompanied by appropriate equipment. The excess weld (stainless steel on stainless steel,
18k gold, 18k gold and titanium of titanium) is then removed to bring the case to the original forms. These are some examples of what can be achieved
with these techniques. Greetings to all friends of the forum and sorry for our english...
