We are specialists in formed and pressed ceramics and industrial ceramic shapes and have a network of high quality partners, giving us the ability to utilise the ideal forming process for the required business need and application.
Formed ceramics are ideal for applications that require repeatable quality / dimensions such as simple or complex shapes, thermal or electrical isolating requirements or chemical resistance.
Forming of ceramic materials into shapes can be achieved by a variety of methods, including slip casting, injection moulding, isostatic and mechanical pressing.
Process selection is important for formed and pressed ceramics and industrial ceramic shapes. Based on quantity, finish and accuracy requirements the correct process will yield the most economic results for the customer.
We are also able to offer items with part glaze or fully glazed finish if required.
Formed and pressed ceramic components can achieve a tolerance accuracy of +/- 1 to 1.5%, Sometimes better. Where tighter tolerances are required then it is often recommended to start with a formed shape and machine this rather than using a typical machining blank.
Anderman Ceramics have extensive experience with all of the main processes and are able to tailor both the material and the process to provide the customer with the correct part.
Custom formed ceramic components are a cost effective way of providing specialist Thermal or electrical isolation and can be delivered in any quantity.
