Jewelwax - a wax specially developed for CNC machining applications in the jewellery industry
Tekwani Applications Ltd in helping to provide materials for modern manufacturing solutions to the jewellery industry has developed a special wax for CNC machining applications. This product called Jewelwax is now used by some of the most prestigious jewellery manufacturing companies in the industry, worldwide.
Jewelwax has been formulated for use with small, computer driven multi-axis cnc machining systems, specifically for the accuracy, high definition and clean cutting required in the jewellery industry. The wax is refined and degassed to eliminate impurities and gas bubbles within the castings.
A wide range of fully machinable wax profiles is now being produced. These include small blocks / billets in sizes conveniently used by most CNC systems.
Technology developed by Tekwani Applications has enabled ringtube castings to be produced in over twenty ring sizes. We are the only manufacturer / supplier to offer this variety of ringtube diameters. In addition we are the first manufacturer to produce larger wax cylinders designed for machining bangles / bracelets.
Most of our profiles are now produced by casting and cooling the wax in a special way, rather than cutting to size from bulk, as this has been shown to produce an enhanced wax microstructure with improved machining qualities. We have also developed a "harder" wax "JewelwaxA" with the properties of "green" wax to supply to Gemvision Revo and other users who prefer this type of wax. See our "Products" page for more details.

Jewelwax is fully compatible with:
all modern hardware and software machining systems developed for creating jewellery of the highest detail and quality.
the "lost wax" casting process, so that the finished machined wax masters can be converted into the metal article without any "burnout" or other problems.
New All the popular wax profiles for use with the "Gemvision - Revo" systems are now available in Jewelwax and JewelwaxA. These include the "base clamp" profiles - see below.
