Ceramic Forming High Precision

Shaping

Various shaping techniques

For the shaping of ceramic powders, Ceramaret uses fully automated single and double action mechanical presses, as well as cold and hot isostatic presses (CIP and HIP).
Tungsten carbide is generally used in the manufacture of shaping equipment, thus guaranteeing maximum precision and durability.
 
For ceramic components of complex shape with high volume requirements, the molding of green parts by injection  (Ceramic Injection Molding or CIM) is more appropriate .
 
Near net shape products by means of various pressing techniques 

Various pressing techniques can achieve the desired shape of a ceramic part that meet your product specifications. Our mastery of tool design and the manufacturing process enable us to achieve unmatched dimensional and geometric precision.
SINTERING
 
Ceramic Forming High Precision
Injection shaping - CIM process - Ceramic Injection Molding

The shaping by injection or CIM process (Ceramic Injection Molding) allows the production of medium and large series of precision ceramic parts. Different oxide or non-oxide materials are available for this process.
Cermaic firing at 1600 degrees celsius
High speed machining of pressed but non-sintered ceramic rawlings (Raw machining / Green machining)

The shaping can be done by high speed machining in a blank of simple or preformed shape of pressed but not sintered ceramic. Different oxide or non-oxide materials are available for this process.
Cermaic firing at 1600 degrees celsius
3D Printing / Additive manufacturing of ceramic parts

Additive manufacturing of technical ceramic parts is ideal for small series or prototyping work from simple to very complex parts.  Different oxide or non-oxide materials are available for this process.

Debinding and sintering of ceramics 

Ceramic powders contain binding agents (polymers for example) that facilitate the compacting and shaping of the parts.These binding agents are removed from the part during the debinding process consisting in heating the shaped parts at high temperatures.

Sintering, the process for the compacting of ceramic particles, uses high temperatures (up to 1600 -1800°) to heat the shaped and debinded parts over a long period of time.

Specifically designed furnaces are required to carry out these two processes.
