Industry/Sector: Gems and Jewellery Client Requirements: Aquaflame Systems was recently approached by Avanti Jewellers in Ashbourne to service their micro-weld machine. Micro welding involves welding anything smaller than traditional welding options. A micro-weld machine can perform welding on thin or delicate materials, in this instance delicate pieces of jewellery. Alan from Avanti Jewellers has 2 machines, one made by Aquaflame Systems and one made by a competitor. Given the reliability of the Aquaflame, Alan decided to have us refurbish the competitor’s machine. This was particularly essential as leading up to Christmas the machine would be in use for most of the time. What we did: One of the stipulations made by Avanti Jewellers was that they needed the machine servicing promptly and a quick turnaround time as the busy Christmas season was fast approaching. At Aquaflame Systems we will always try to accommodate the deadlines set by our clients and work together to agree timescales. When the machine arrived at our workshop it was immediately obvious that it needed a lot of work doing to it to ensure it was restored to good condition. Also it was not fitted with flashback arrestors. It’s essential that flashback arrestors are working effectively Read More

Aquaflame have just competed a new video, which highlights the use of their precision flame in Investment casting Wax rooms. Aquaflame produces an oxyhydrogen flame by electrolysis – the gas is produced on demand and at low pressure. The machine is small, low capital cost and low maintenance. The flame is ideal for cleaning up and jointing investment casting wax assemblies because it is precise, easy to direct and generates significantly less smoke than hot knives or spatulas – this leading to a cleaner safer wax room environment. Different tips can be used to make the flame smaller or larger depending on the task in hand. In addition it is possible to have extended nozzles to allow access into more intricate or delicate areas. In the first instance the flame can be used for jointing small to medium sizes parts. The fame creates smooth radial joints with no undercuts. It is fast, easy to use and creates much less smoke than traditional hot spatula / knife methods. After jointing much less cleaning up or inspection is required of the final assembly because the joints are more complete. In addition Aquaflame can be used to clean up the runner bar and Read More
