LOST WAX FOUNDRY
Lost wax casting involves the principle of reproducing an original part by a moulding process. This moulding, generally made of elastomer material, allows hot wax to be poured or injected, which will consequently take on the shape of the original part that has been moulded when it cools.
This stage is therefore important for obtaining a perfect cast like the original part (model generally supplied by the customer).
The moulding department therefore includes highly experienced and qualified personnel, with a great deal of know-how in the preparation and cutting of moulds, and with the best quality moulding materials and the most advanced equipment on the market.
Solyfonte, in addition to its foundry services, offers its customers support in the preparation of their parts, with more or less advanced and varied levels of finishing according to their expectations, from hand or mechanical polishing to traditional hot patina… Depending on their needs and the purpose of the products, we deliver raw foundry parts or offer pre-polished or polished parts (hand or mechanical), chiselled parts, hot patina, plated parts (gold, silver, palladium). We can also handle the assembly of parts by brazing or TIG welding.
AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF MODERNITY
LASER CUTTING AND ENGRAVING
For the manufacture of your parts, Solyfonte offers laser cutting. We use a computer file of the part to be made (2D file type .dxf…) If you do not have a file to provide, it is not a problem we will take responsibility for it. Once the file is usable, we will use a specific software to give the instructions to the laser. The cutting file is then initialised in the machine’s system. Depending on the complexity of the part to be produced, laser cutting can take a few minutes but can also take several hours. Our workshop can also perform laser engraving. With a process identical to laser cutting, our machine combines speed and productivity for all types of engraving.

MANUAL AND MECHANICAL
Polishing is an important step in the finishing of the parts that leave our workshops. It is an abrasive process that allows us to obtain a beautiful appearance and a very high quality surface finish. A good quality polish is distinguished by its superior brilliance and shine.
We master different types of polishing:
