Ceramco manufactures custom ceramic parts. While our ceramic components serve in many specialized and demanding roles, there is none more mission critical than their application in space and space exploration. Once a vehicle or payload leaves Earth, seldom is there the opportunity to replace or repair a failed component. Ceramic materials are often chosen to fulfill these mission critical roles for many of the unique properties they offer. Ceramco has been chosen by NASA for its ability to deliver these mission critical custom ceramic parts at the lowest possible price.
Leaving Earth’s atmosphere is not a requirement for a mission critical role. Ceramics are also often the material of choice for the aviation industry as well. Ceramco manufactures custom ceramic parts for use in both commercial and military aviation. When a 500 ton aircraft deploys its landing gear, the term “mission critical” takes on a new meaning. Ceramco’s custom ceramic parts help assure the landing gear assemblies function as intended.
Unique Properties, Specialized Materials
Whether Ceramco’s custom ceramic parts are used in our atmosphere, in outer orbit, or beyond, extreme conditions exist that are overcome by the unique properties only ceramics deliver, including:
- Electrical Insulation – isolating critical wires and components from damage
- Thermal Insulation – resistance to high temperatures
- Durability – resistance to repeated and extreme thermal cycling and friction
- Corrosion Resistant, Chemically Inert – no contamination of sensitive instruments
- Strength to Density Ratios – comparable to the most novel engineering alloys
Ceramco offers ceramic material formulations in both aluminum oxide (Al2O3, alumina), zirconium oxide (ZrO2, zirconia) and silicon nitride (Si3N4), as well as user defined materials, satisfying virtually any custom ceramic parts application for the aviation and aerospace industries. Our rigorous quality assurance program and going the extra mile, means that whether in the air or in space, the custom ceramic parts we manufacture will do the same for our customers.
People Making it Happen
It is the “feet on the ground” approach of everyone at Ceramco that helps keep our aerospace and aviation customers flying. We deal with the “unique” and “challenging” every day. These properties are not only the nature of these two industries as well as our business; they are the nature of the materials from which we engineer and manufacture custom ceramic parts.
