Cast your design in a variety of metals

RW Manufacturing provides complete jewelry casting services. We have the skill and experience necessary to ensure you receive only the finest castings possible.

Our dedication to quality and service is evidenced in our investment in the latest high-tech equipment. Our new high-capacity Platicast 2000 and Starcast 3000 casting machines use RF induction, inert gas atmosphere, vacuum and over-pressure to produce high-quality Platinum, Gold, and Silver castings.

We are capable of handling any of your wax originals, wax injections, models or rubber molds—from one piece to 1000 pieces or more. All waxes are carefully inspected for any imperfections, which might compromise the finished quality. We cast in all the traditional precious jewelry metals as well as brass and bronze.

Platinum is the metal of choice in fine jewelry today. We are now using Platinum Ruthenium 95/5. This combination of metal gives the consumer the look they want, the jeweler an easier working metal, and the retailer a more durable product. Traditional iridium/platinum alloys are also available, but we at RW Manufacturing feel that you will see the remarkable improvements available with Platinum Ruthenium. Quality is the hallmark of our reputation.

Gold is still the most popular choice and the standard of the jewelry industry. It comes in any color and karat that you need. Choose from 10k, 14k or 18k in yellow, white, green or rose. Our 18K Royal yellow gold is especially popular. It gives you a richer, "European" gold look. Now, you can give your customer unlimited choices in karat gold and still be assured that our quarter century of experience will show in the results.

Silver has shown an excellent resurgence in many areas. With a unique sterling silver alloy, we can eliminate many of the earlier problems with silver, especially tarnishing. The use of karat gold and silver has become a popular fashion statement today...let us combine the metals for you and your customers. RW Manufacturing can cast and assemble any combination of metals, all displaying the renowned RW Manufacturing quality.
RW Manufacturing is proud of its reputation for integrity. We assure you that all clients' designs, molds and models are held in the strictest of confidence.

Custom Services

Committed to Technology and the Innovation that it Provides

Modern innovation begins with advanced machinery.  Here at RW Manufacturing we have 4 technologically advanced Laser® Star welding machines that offer some significant advantages over traditional soldering:  

  • Casting imperfection—Cavities and cracks can be repaired with the same metal, instead of a low-grade filler that will cause future problems like discoloration and melt-out.
  • Repairs near fragile gems—Because lasers do not produce conductive heat, fragile gems need not be removed from the mounting, saving time, possible damage and money.
  • Assembly of complex multi-color and multi-component jewelry— Since lasers produce "spot" welds, there are no solder runs or shifting of parts during heating as with conventional soldering techniques.
  • Application of findings—Laser welding creates a stronger bond since weaker metals are not used. There is also less clean up and the findings are virtually permanent.
  • Multi-metal applications—All metals can be welded, even combinations of Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Dissimilar metal parts can be combined with unparalleled adhesion.
  • Restoration—Delicate and antique items can be restored without concern for distortion and dissolving of previous repair work.

With the new Laser technology, RW Manufacturing can provide you with the services to improve the overall quality of your repairs, restoration and manufacturing plus significantly reduce your overall cost. Contact us for more information on how we can assist you.
