R&D

IN THE HEART OF OUR COMPANY

To guide our clients in determining their specifications, our R&D engineers contribute their knowledge of specific machining processes on materials such as gemstones and mother-of-pearl. The full specifications are developed on 3D software which ensures a direct link with the production and control departments. Our R&D department is central to our company, making it possible for us to provide original, personalised creations.

Machining

A ULTRAMODERN MACHINERY PARK

Our industrial equipment, comprising several Ultrasonic 5-axis machining centres, makes it possible to shape complex materials. More conventional materials such as gold and brass are crafted on digital machining centres.

Electroplating

SURFACE TREATMENTS

An electroplating chain ensures surface treatments such as nickel-, silver-, rhodium- and gold-plating. Black and blue surface treatments are also mastered in-house.  We possess synergies that make it possible to propose DLC and PVD coatings in a wide array of colours

Lacquering / Painting

CHOICE OF COLORS AND FINISHES

Our in-house mastery of lacquering (painting) but not enamel (we have many partners to offer this specific and craft process) offers our clients a multitude of possibilities and a vast choice of personalisation options. Thanks to our command of airbrushing, gradated effects may also be applied to metal components or under gemstones or mother-of-pearl pieces.
