Large-scale Production with Minimized Process Cycles
The pressing of Ceramics is a well-established technology mainly used in series production. CERIX specializes in manufacturing high performance ceramic components, meeting the most challenging requirements using this technology.
Pressing - a Highly Sophisticated Technology with Optimal Results
Along with being a profitable technology for large-scale production, pressing can also meet excellent tolerances: the achievable accuracy is nearly comparable to the tolerances obtained by ceramic injection molding. Complex geometries can also be realized up to a certain degree.
Shorter Production Process for More Profitability in Series Production
A specific feature of pressing is the specialized granulate that serves as the base material. Since granulate has a lower binder content, the thermal process can be considerably shortened during refinishing. This enormously speeds up the manufacturing process and leads to elevated profitability. A high degree of automation ensures more reproducibility and consistent quality.
The process of pressing technical ceramics
Powder and Binder
Material composition is defined, customizable according to your wishes.
Powder and Binder are made to be free-flowing to ensure that the molding tools are consistently filled.
By applying high pressure, the pressing powder is uniformly compacted into the tooling.
During the thermal process, the binder residues are released and the component achieves its final stability.
Because of the near net shape manufacturing, parts do not normally need to be refinished.
We will test your component according to your specifications - 100% check or random sampling.
Medium Degree of Complexity
Reduced complexity with pressed components
Specialized granulate leads to shorter thermal processing times
Highly standardized and automated processes for large volumes
