Ceramic construction elements - the hard working bridge builders!
Ceramic components must be heat resistant, thermal shock resistant and temperature resistant. Other important quality criteria are food compatibility and biocompatibility. Depending on the area of application, the requirements are of course fundamentally different.
Decades of experience in the production of ceramic components for passive components guarantees high quality products. Even with the tightest dimensional tolerances, the high surface quality must be maintained. Resistor bodies are produced by extruding the Rubalit® ceramic material. This is an aluminium oxide ceramic. These resistance bodies are highly valued for their bending strength, load capacity and strength.
This material as core material for electrical resistors is
for the lower noise factor,
more stable resistance values,
higher reliability in laser trimming and
the increase of the resistance against electrical shock loads
The production of electronic modules and components is particularly important in the information and communication technology, automotive, consumer electronics and industrial electronics sectors. Tailor-made, high-quality solutions from a single source greatly simplify work processes.
In so-called competence centers, top products are developed and expanded and solutions for special cases are worked out. The products include ceramic multilayer components, sensor elements, sensors, piezo actuators, varistors, modules and thermistors.
Other ceramic components include ceramic capacitors, resistors, power resistors, precision resistors, components and electronic components.
Complete system solutions, ceramic insulations and special designs complete the product range of ceramic components available on the market. Piezoceramic components work with a resonant frequency between 200 kHz and 10 MHz. They convert mechanical signals such as strain, pressure, force or acceleration into induction (electrical voltage) and vice versa. Rings, discs and plates generate ultrasonic oscillations in power sound applications and sensors.
In the nominal response temperature range, temperature-dependent components and special designs are manufactured.
But also refinements of ceramic components or components as such are possible.
The processes used range from ceramic injection moulding, extrusion to dry pressing. The certifications of the manufacturers attest to excellent quality.
High-performance ceramics and complex ceramic components using modern measuring and production technologies enable high-quality results and products developed according to customer specifications.
Ceramic hybrid bearings and temperature-resistant ceramic components are produced for wind power and solar technology. For the high-temperature range, technical ceramics for operating temperatures of 1,750 °C are produced. For the aerospace industry, high-quality ceramic powders are produced for use in the most difficult environmental conditions. Extreme precision in manufacturing and high wear resistance of the products guarantee quality.
Working according to customer specifications and using the most modern methods are also proof of quality. However, this requires profound, long-standing know-how. Special materials, a wide range of applications as well as short-term production of prototypes and small series are further guarantees for high quality.
Ceramic components are used in almost all industries. Whether in space travel or in photovoltaics, these components are high-quality precision products. The production processes range from dry pressing to ceramic injection moulding and extrusion. The certifications of the manufacturers testify to The manufacturers are almost all multiple certified and have decades of experience. Special designs according to customer requirements are produced in small quantities as well as in series and large quantities. Refinements of construction components are also manufactured according to customer requirements. Prototypes before serial production of ceramic components are of course part of the service portfolio of most manufacturers. Heat, temperature and thermal shock resistance are among the quality characteristics of ceramic components. Biocompatibility and food compatibility are important criteria for use in the food industry. Solutions from a single source simplify work processes and above all minimize time-consuming paths.
