Mira mills work most commonly in wax, but it’s not the only medium they shine in. With the right set of milling bits and the right strategy, Mira mills can cut just about anything. On the softer side, we’ve had clients work in bone, wax, and soft plastics. On the other end of the spectrum, clients have cut hard plastics, graphite, and even metal.
While the harder materials take more time to mill – upwards of 12 hours in hard metals, it’s well worth the wait. As markets change and new customers want something unique, it’s important for a skilled jeweler to work in multiple mediums. For those demanding customers, Mira mills are able to rise to the occasion and enable jewelers to fulfill just about any order, no matter how challenging.
