Being at the forefront of advanced precious metal casting has enabled us to steadily develop many unique methodologies to produce only the best quality castings from the designs submitted for production.
We have always accepted new challenges, and developed solutions. This is of particular interest when it comes to the platinum group metals, which Hean Studio has been successfully casting for over 50 years also.
The most popular precious metals that we cast include:
- Gold - Pure Gold, 22ct Yellow, 18ct Yellow (2N), 18ct White (13.5% Pd), 18ct Red (5N), 18ct French Yellow (3N), 14ct Yellow, 14ct White, 9ct Yellow, 9ct White and 9ct Red.
- Platinum - Pure Platinum, Platinum 950 (Platinum/Cobalt), Platinum/Rhodium and Platinum/Ruthenium (important to watch makers as it is not magnetic).
- Silver - Sterling.
Enquiries are welcome re unusual precious metal alloys.
Many clients send us hand carved items in wax, which we cast directly into the required metal, and we only have one chance. Sometimes though, we are requested to cold mould the wax item first. We also accept a wide variety of materials that have been hand worked, as well as natural objects, such as shells, twigs, pine cones, flowers, that can be cold moulded.
