Semi-finished Products

Semi-finished: Prepared for the final stages of manufacturing.

 

About Fabrication

Semi-finished precious metal products are used in many industrial sectors, as well as in jewelry production and medical technology. The semi-finished or pre-materials produced are the raw materials provided for the manufacture of end-user products.

Depending on the product, quality, and customer requirements, melting processes, such as vacuum casting or continuous casting, as well as sintered materials are used in the production of semi-finished products.

A wide range of semi-finished goldsmith, industrial, or specialty products that are fabricated from drawn, rolled, pressed, shaped, and coined items. The process begins with top-quality metallurgical castings that ensure semi-finished products are easy to work with and are of the highest quality.

Semi-finished precious metal items are hallmarked for quality. These semi-finished products, especially when used in art or jewelry, are required to pass through official testing channels for assaying of their precious metal content. The assayer tests the products to determine that the fineness of the product conforms with the fineness that the maker has attested to on the hallmark.
