From the beeswax raw stone to the beeswax string, a dozen processes before and after, it is not easy. Let's go and have a look.
The first step: Classify the rough stone. Use a strong light to distinguish whether the raw stone is amber or beeswax, and classify it according to size.
Step Two: Cleaning. After the raw wax is sorted, it is placed in a machine called a "shaking bucket", where it is shaken with water to clean the sediment.
Step 3: Cut squares. According to the size, the rough stone is cut into square pieces suitable for making beads. This is a lot of eye work, but also very careful of his sense of propriety.
Step 4: Grind the camber. After cutting the square, use the "chamfering machine", its role is to grind the eight corners of the square into a curve for further polishing into beads. (This is the chamfering machine)
Step 5: Divide the size. The square grain should be sorted according to the size, next, continue to look at the strange equipment we have not seen - the nest bead machine, listen to the name should know, finally began to enter the rhythm of beads.
Step 6: Polish. The square particles after chamfering are sorted out according to their size, and then placed on the holes of the disc of the dimpling machine of different sizes, and then the pressing disc in the upper right corner of the figure is pressed on it, and it is polished, just like the following picture.
Step 7: Polish and polish. After the bead machine comes out, it needs to sand treatment, at this time, the "bucket" we just mentioned comes back, pour the beads into the bucket, put together with the different thickness of the emery, and add water, and carry out many "sand" to achieve the effect of grinding and polishing.
First: Punch holes. Whether large or small beads, after grinding, it is necessary to punch holes. The machine used to punch the hole is similar to the DIY hole punch.
Step 9: String beads. After the perforated beads are beaded, that is, the beads are sorted and threaded, from the large bead bracelet to the small rainbow chain.
Step 10: Finished product. A piece of raw stone made into a string, in the work to go through seven or eight kinds of machines and a dozen processes, generally speaking, the loss rate of some to reach 60%.
