Precision Ceramics Machining Solved

Richard Arthur Honing News, News

In recent years the use of Advanced Ceramics in support of electrical, optical, and magnetic component applications in the aerospace, semiconductor and oil and gas industries has increased significantly. The increased surface hardness properties of the newer grade materials have resulted in a challenge for machining processes. The current process for machining materials like ceramics involves traditional internal grinding process. However, as engineers pushed the boundaries of the applications where Ceramics are used, tolerances achieved through these processes have begun to fall short of expectations. To address harder materials like Ceramics Delapena invested heavily in a new abrasive sintering manufacturing process.  This …
