Permanent Jewelry Insight
Upgrade Your Customers When Working with Fine Chain
The permanent jewelry trend has heated up over the last year and shows no sign of cooling off. The latest data from Google Trends suggests that the number of online searches for “permanent jewelry” will remain steady moving forward.
Most people purchasing an Orion pulse arc welder for their permanent jewelry business are choosing the Orion mPulse. The price point and simplicity of the Orion mPulse make it a great choice since most permanent jewelry artists don’t have the traditional skills you would find in a bench jeweler.
The only potential con to the mPulse is its minimum power setting of 3 joules. For very fine chain, 3 joules may be too much energy for the chain to handle. As a result, the link will not fuse together but blow out, meaning the metal is vaporized or splattered onto the electrode.
Upgrading to the Orion 150s solves the problem, allowing the artist to decrease the power to as low as 1 joule. And, unlike the Orion mPulse, the artist can increase or decrease power in two-tenths of joule increments. As a result, the artist can dial in just the right amount of power needed to close a fine chain, something a bit more difficult to do with the Orion mPulse.
Your customers will pay more for the Orion 150s, of course, but will gain much more energy control, both in how much energy is transferred and how the energy is delivered. When working with very fine chain, the Orion 150s is the better choice.
