The Process of Making Enamel Lapel Pins
1. The first step: making enamel lapel pins
That is, according to the designed badge drawings, the molds are made. Most of the current molds are machine carvings. Because of the fully automatic machine carving, the carved birds and animals, portraits, landscapes, etc. are lifelike and vivid, and the enamel lapel pins produced are more delicate and bright.
2. Step 2: the blanking of enamel lapel pins
Use the prepared mold to press out the required copper blanks, and the enamel badges are generally made of copper blanks. Sometimes, according to the needs, silver powder is used to weld the required accessories, such as safety pins or stabbing needles, and then pickled before proceeding to the next step.
3. The third step: paint the enamel lapel pins
According to the requirements of the badge drawings, prepare brightly colored enamel paint, the thickness is generally higher than the metal wire frame, and then put it into a high-temperature oven for baking, so that the paint is completely cured and reaches a certain hardness.
4. Step 4: Polish the enamel lapel pins
Generally, a metal grinding wheel is used to smooth the paint surface of the baked product, so that all the metal wire frames are exposed and the paint surface is completely flat. And check the flat badges. If there is any unevenness, you need to repaint, bake, and flatten before proceeding to the next process.
5. Step 5: The polishing of enamel lapel pins
First rough throw, then fine throw. Add lubricating materials such as paraffin to it to make the surface smooth and delicate. Polished soft enamel badges, the surface is smooth like a mirror, crystal and exquisite, very ornamental.
6. Step 6: The plating of enamel lapel pins
The polished badge products can be electroplated after pickling, and can be electroplated into different effects, such as gold-plated, silver-plated or bronze-plated, which can be described as colorful. The electroplated product is washed with water and dried, and an enamel badge is completed.
After the above steps, a carefully crafted, exquisite and unique enamel badge is completed. Because the enamel has undergone the high-temperature burning process, the overall badge will feel a little raised (the high-temperature copper has been deformed), which can be felt by the touch of the finger, which is also better for distinguishing between genuine and fake enamel badges and imitation enamel badges. The way. In addition, compared with imitation enamel badges, real enamel badges require more sophisticated technological processes, longer construction periods, and higher prices than imitation enamel badges. The products are highly ornamental and collectible.
