Expertise, Value, Capability!
Many methods will yield a finished ceramic part. Knowing which method is the best choice requires
manufacturing expertise. Ceramco has the expertise and the in-house capability to match your
part to the best method.
Finished threads, undercuts, intersections and wall thicknesses as thin as 0.3 mm. All with little or no
grinding or machining. Rapid prototyping, short runs and quantities of 50,000 pieces (or more) annually,
all produced efficiently and economically in the USA, following
ISO 9001-2015 quality standards.
Support processing, including:
powder blending per cusomer specs,
full density machining,
glazing, coating and
assembly services also available.
Scalable and Vertically Integrated
Ceramco’s manufacturing processes are not optimized for any particular custom
ceramic parts order quantity. Ceramco produces large and small quantities utilizing the same processes by
stepping-up the investment in tooling if necessary. Ceramco scales up easily when the customer is ready to move from
prototype or small quantity of their custom ceramic part requiring no tooling, to a larger quantity or production
run. For more information on all of Ceramco's forming process methods, please refer to the images and
LPIM - Low Pressure Ceramic Injection Molding
Near-net shaped production
quantities* of 100 to 10,000 pieces annually utilizing tooling from type 6061 aluminum.
Providing both flexibility and value, LPIM tooling
can typically produce 10,000 ceramic parts before any maintenance is needed.
HPIM - High Pressure Ceramic Injection Molding
Near-net shaped production
quantities* of 10,000 pieces or more annually utilizing tool
steel as the material of choice to satisfy the increased volume requirements yet maintain the
precision on critical custom ceramic parts features.
MicroPIM - High Pressure Ceramic Injection Molding Parts ≥ 0.05 Grams
MicroPIM is another high-volume, near-net
shaping production method virtually the same as HPIM (above) and with the same
tooling requirements. MicroPIM differs in
its ability to output highly-configured, complex-shaped ceramic parts as small as 0.05 Grams.
3D Printing, LCM - Additive or Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing
OUR 3D, LCM forming technology provides us the ability to rapid prototype a
near-net part (in some cases) in days,
with no tooling required. 3D, LCM technology is also used for smaller production runs and overcomes
die lock and demolding issues that might be encountered in our other forming processes.
*Quantities are approximate. Many factors determine the appropriate manufacturing process.
People Making it Happen
Ceramco is the very best at what it does because of the people that work here. They
engineer and manufacture the stock ceramic
fasteners and custom ceramic parts we deliver to our customers. Without them Ceramco is
just a building full of equipment, which is why they are so important to us. When you do
business with Ceramco you and your order, regardless of its size, will be treated with the
same respect and concern.
