Ceramic components are commonly used within the aircraft and defence industries for bearings, seals and laser boxes for guidance systems.
Common Ceramic Materials Ground
- Zirconium (Extremely hard)
- Aluminum Oxide (Soft)
- Technox 300 (Soft)
If you need a close tolerance on your ceramic parts this comes as standard.
By use of a metal bonded diamond wheel which we dress carefully, close tolerances of +/- 0.005 mm can be achieved.
We also use plated Diamond wheels (mainly used for bores) - minimum bore diameter of 1mm.
We can cut internal and external threads and drill ceramics..
Resinoid diamond wheels of various grades can be dressed to achieve high finishes - mainly used on carbides (Tungsten) and extremely hard grade ceramics.
Ceramic components are used within the aircraft and defense industries for bearings, seals and laser boxes for guidance systems.
Up to 350 mm diameter material can be handled and in square form up to 400 mm
