Gesswein Releases Two New Products

Jewelry supply manufacturer Gesswein has added two new products to its lineup: the LED Green-Lite and the PUK 04 welder.  

The Green-Lite is a surface-mount LED, an energy-efficient, long-lasting lighting system. These surface-mount LEDs produce more light with less glare than old-style clusters of LED lights. The new technology assures lower operating costs, longer lighting life span, and improved productivity. The lights are available in eight colors and two shapes.  

The PUK 04 welder features a quick and easy touch-screen display. The system has presettings, allowing the user to set the various welding curves, energy curves, and frequency of overlapping pulses in advance. The display also shows recommended setting ranges.

“Our customers appreciate the simplicity and the continued development of the PUK brand over the past 10 years,” said Scott Petrillo, VP of sales for Gesswein. “It is amazing how the PUK 04 enables the bench jeweler/goldsmith increased precise welding than the previous models, thus producing optimal welds.”
