Ceramics

Industry Overview:
  The ceramics industry extends far beyond the arts and crafts projects we all remember from childhood, and even beyond the earthenware dishes that we can purchase in the store. Technical advances mean that ceramics are now used not only in traditional domestic, industrial, and building products, but also in ballistics armored vests and vehicles, biomedical implants such as dental implants and synthetic bones, and jet turbine engine blades and the nose cones of missiles.

In the United States, domestic manufacturers must compete with aggressive price-cutting from overseas firms; a firm understanding of speed, cost controls, safety concerns, and state-of-the-art processing equipment is required in order to develop advanced products that will garner a competitive edge. Expertise in mechanical, chemical, and electrical issues and other concerns are all necessary in producing and marketing ceramics, which offer great advantages over other products.

Common Applications:
 
  • Crystalline / non-crystalline
  • Metallurgy
  • Glazing
  • Machining
  • Thermal stress
  • Abrasives, kaolin, etc.
  • Ceramic engineering
