Doubling of Capacity


Additive Manufacturing for Ceramic Components… Rapid Prototyping & Production Quantities

A second Lithoz machine is now online and in production, effectively doubling additive manufacturing capacity. Recent work on these machines include very precise features such as holes and wall thicknesses smaller than the “normal” capability envelope. The learning curve on this second machine will be quite short as Ceramco’s first machine (the first installed in North America) has been in operation for almost four years.

Most recently, Ceramco has additive manufactured parts for the medical device industry. A field bringing new challenges and even more stringent requirements we are successfully meeting.

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.

CERAMCO, INC. EXPANDS E-COMMERCE FASTENER PORTAL AVAILABILITY TO THE GLOBAL MARKETPLACE

Ceramco, Inc. (Center Conway, New Hampshire) announces it has expanded the 24/7 availability of its e-commerce portal: https://www.ceramicfasteners.com from U.S. only to the global* marketplace. 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. Orders ship via United Parcel Service, with options dependent upon the order’s destination. Buyers outside the U.S. are responsible for all tariffs, taxes, and customs fees at time of delivery.

Now users of solid ceramic machine screws, bolts, flat washers and hex nuts, outside the U.S., can select from a comprehensive inventory of solid ceramic flat, pan, hex or cap head styles, in either Phillips, slotted or socket as is applicable, in both U.S. inch standard and metric sizes. Most styles and sizes available in either alumina or zirconia.

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). Available compositions, sizes and lengths vary and may be dependent upon material properties and performance characteristics. Most recently Ceramco added British Standard washers in sizes: M2, M3, M4, M5, M6 and M8.

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, can provide leak free connections, hold a vacuum  and are non-out-gassing.

All 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.

All Ceramco’s solid ceramic fasteners are made in America, in Center Conway NH following ISO 9001-2015 quality standards. Ceramco is also ITAR registered.

* Excluding those countries embargoed by the U.S. Government.

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.
