In this era, pins are also used for authority purposes such as symbolize to government and company groups. Many people love to lapel collect pins as if stamp collection and they are curious to know more about it. So now the question is how to make enamel pins?
Produce pins is not so difficult if we fallow the production steps properly. Patience and hard work are the key to success to make a beautiful pin. Let began how to make enamel pins:-
- Step 1:-
An amazing enamel pin requires a beautiful design. Most experienced designers are drawing a draft sketch on a paper. It is the most basic and primary step of design pins.
- Step 2:-
After confirming the design, it will be transfered to the programmers of the factory’s mold department. Here the programmers emerge the 3D models of that design. That 3D model will be check repeatedly, one small oversight will be waste of time for the further procedure. This step is a most crucial step of any other steps.
- Step 3:-
When the 3D model will ready then the main production engraving will start. In this procedure, fixing a black piece of steel on the die milling machine, and the computer programs crave out the badges’ designs according to the 3D design. After that, there is a tool called nicking tool, it will use to grind off extra metal from the model, and then slowly shape up the main design.
- Step 4:-
After finishing the making of pins moulds, workers will recheck the new model with main design to ensure the mold designs are correct. After this checking, the mold needs to bake in the very high-temperature oven. This is a normal heat treatment process to decreases the carbon particle from the steel and increases the hardness of the mold.
- Step 5:-
When the baking will finish, immediately dip the pins into the engine oil for cooling the mold. This process helps to increase the hardness and the tenacity once more.
- Step 6:-
This step is called DIE STRUCK. In this process, the outside of the cooling pins mold will cover with a steel loop to protect from the damaging, and then press it on the hydraulic machine.
Now the first workblank has come and it will check again with the main design. If the work blank has not any dispute then company go for mass production.
