Technical Ceramics Processing
Ceramic forming processes may be classified as traditional – die pressing, cold isostatic pressing, slip casting, and extrusion – or as new and emerging, such as injection moulding and tape casting.
Some traditional methods have been refined or adapted to meet particular property requirements. These include hot pressing, hot isostatic pressing, and pressure casting.
With all forms of engineering ceramic production, it is the aim of the manufacturer to ensure flaws and defects are reduced at all stages of the process. To this end CoorsTek Crewe was one of the first manufacturers of engineering ceramics to invest in clean room technologies for powder processing and compaction.
CoorsTek, Inc. has over 100 years experience in the development of engineering ceramic manufacturing processes to minimize defects in the sintered component and to ensure greater reliability in service.
