SILICON NITRIDE CUSTOM COMPONENTS IN LARGE QUANTITIES

Ceramco adds silicon nitride (Si3N4) to its list of production formulations for additive manufacturing (LCM) and high pressure injection molding (HPIM)

Ceramco, Inc., building upon its expertise in the near-net shaping of alumina and zirconia components, is now also near-net shaping silicon nitride. Tool-free LCM and HPIM makes these non-oxide silicon nitride components achievable and more cost effective. Ceramco’s near-net shaping of silicon nitride in many cases eliminates the need for any follow-up machining.

Ceramco’s silicon nitride shares the same desirable characteristics of high strength and toughness of their zirconia, but at about half the weight. The material performs in application temperatures up to 1200° C and has high resistance to wear and corrosion. Silicon nitride stands alone in its ability to withstand mechanical impact and exhibits high mechanical strength when exposed to sudden stresses.

Silicon nitride components manufactured by Ceramco include: cutting tools, sensor shields, high velocity, defense-related articles and other tough service applications. Ceramco anticipates adding LPIM (low pressure injection molding) of silicon nitride to its capabilities in the near future.

VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH THOMAS HENRIKSEN, PRESIDENT AND CERAMIST, DISCUSSING CERAMCO’S 3D PRINTING CAPABILITIES

Viewers will gain an industrial perspective on the process of 3D printing itself and learn how 3D printing (additive manufacturing) of ceramic components compares to Ceramco’s’ conventional ceramic parts manufacturing: ceramic injection molding or CIM.


Please watch Ceramco’s 3D Printing interview video (above) or visit our YouTube Channel for this and other Ceramco videos.

Ceramco is the first manufacturer in the United States to have 3D printing capability for ceramics, giving them the edge over their competition to develop this technology and make it available to the market from a company based in the United States.

Ceramco is ISO 9001:2015 certified, ITAR registered and located in Center Conway New Hampshire USA. To learn more about Ceramco’s 3D printing capabilities, visit their website, or contact Ceramco directly.

CERAMCO, INC. LAUNCHES E-COMMERCE PORTAL FOR ITS COMPREHENSIVE LINE OF SOLID CERAMIC MACHINE SCREWS, BOLTS, FLAT WASHERS AND HEX NUTS

 

Ceramco's line of stock fasteners available from Ceramco's e-commerce portal.

Ceramco’s line of stock ceramic fasteners available from Ceramco’s e-commerce portal.

Ceramco, Inc. (Center Conway, New Hampshire) announces the 24/7 availability of its new e-commerce portal: https://www.ceramicfasteners.com. This portal is designed solely for the sale of Ceramco’s own solid zirconia and alumina fasteners, made in their plant in Center Conway, New Hampshire, USA.
Upon visiting the portal, prospective buyers will find a comprehensive, easy to identify selection of machine screws, bolts, flat washers and hex nuts in both U.S. inch standard and metric sizes. Most machine screws and bolts are available, in either flat, pan, hex or cap head styles, in either Phillips, slotted or socket as is applicable. All bolts and screws have matching hex nuts also available.
Fastener sizes range from: #0-80 to 3/8″-16 (U.S. inch) and M2 to M8 (metric). Flat washer sizes range from: #0 to 1” (U.S. inch) and M2 to M20 (metric). Many sizes in both U.S. inch and metric are available in either solid zirconia or solid alumina. Available sizes and lengths vary and may be dependent upon material properties and performance characteristics.
These fasteners are intended for scientific instruments, laser chambers, medical devices, fuel cell stacks, and other industrial applications in which metal alloy fasteners or plastic fasteners fail, or simply do not possess the properties demanded by the harsh environments in which they must perform. They are resistant to heat and corrosion, are non-conductive and are non-out-gassing.
All of Ceramco’s ceramic fasteners are 100% net shaped in solid ceramic and then fired to full density. Ceramco stock ceramic fasteners are never machined or fatigued from harsh grinding. Additional mechanical properties data for the screws and bolts are to be added in future updates to the Ceramco fastener portal.
U.S. orders received before noon Eastern Standard Time (M-F) ship same day. All major credit cards accepted. Purchase orders accepted from Ceramco customers with established credit.

Background:
In business since 1982, Ceramco’s primary focus is as an OEM manufacturer of custom technical ceramics of complex geometries for customer-specific applications serving numerous markets, including: aviation & aerospace, scientific instrumentation, energy, textiles and personal care products. Along the way Ceramco learned there are many applications that benefit from the properties ceramics offer, but require only a traditional or “stock” size and shape fastener.
“We’ve been selling our stock ceramic fasteners for years,” said Thomas Henriksen, Ceramco President. “Until the launch of our fastener portal, orders were handled over the phone or through e-mail. Our fastener portal now allows new and existing customers to order immediately and at their convenience,” Henriksen added.

Flat washers made of Ceramco’s A998 alumina in seven larger U.S. inch sizes and five larger Metric sizes are now in-stock and available for immediate shipment.

In answer to an ever-increasing demand for stock ceramic fasteners in a greater variety of sizes, the new A998 alumina U.S. inch flat washer sizes include: 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″, 5/8″, 3/4″, 7/8″ and 1″. The new Metric sizes of Ceramco’s A998 alumina flat washers include: M10, M12, M14, M16 and M20. Other new sizes are planned.

Ceramco’s stock ceramic fastener inventory, including these new larger flat washers, are 100% molded, using our near-net shaping process and then fired to full density. Ceramco stock ceramic fasteners are never machined or fatigued from harsh grinding.

Ceramco’s stock ceramic washers, bolts and hex nuts are heat resistant, corrosion resistant, non-conductive and do not out-gas. Markets served by Ceramco’s stock ceramic fasteners include: aviation and aerospace, scientific instrumentation, energy, personal care and textile manufacturing.

Ceramco’s stock ceramic washers and their matching bolts and nuts are ideal in almost any application in which metal alloy fasteners or plastic fasteners fail, or simply do not possess the properties demanded by the environments in which they must perform.
All of Ceramco’s stock ceramic fasteners are made in America, in Center Conway NH.
