With a comprehensive base of skills and knowledge in ceramic materials, product design, quality requirements and engineering we are able to develop and deliver innovative solutions in ceramic.

Our capabilities in ceramic production include:

  • Compaction pressing (mechanical and hydraulic) up to 500T
  • Ceramic injection moulding
  • CNC machining
  • Extrusion
  • Isostatic pressing (dry and wet bag)
  • Extensive green machining including (CNC and manual) turning, drilling, milling, cutting and grinding
  • Sintering (electric and gas)
  • Hot isostatic pressing
  • Laser cutting
  • Extensive diamond grinding (CNC and manual): cylindrical, internal, surface, spherical
  • Honing
  • Lapping
  • Polishing (Ra <0.05mm)
  • Glazing
  • Electro plating (nickel, tin, gold, copper)
  • Metallising (refractory and thick film)
  • Metallising thin film
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Sputter coating
  • Brazing including active alloy brazing and vacuum brazing
  • TIG welding
  • Soldering
  • Mechanical assembly (including various bonding techniques)
  • Laser marking (serial number)
  • Dry pressing
  • Isostatic pressing

We also offer testing and verification including:

  • CMM (3-D measurement)
  • Scanning
  • Xray thickness
  • Vacuum leak testing down to 10-10 mbar litre/sec
  • Pressure testing
  • Mechanical strength testing
  • Electrical
  • Thermal cycling
  • Advanced cleaning and packing facilities

Our Certech ceramic core product range benefits from a Material Development Lab and a Material Control Lab to help meet specific casting requirements such as particle size, softening point, thermal expansion and X-ray diffraction. We are a Corporate Member of the High Temperature Materials Lab at Oak Ridge National Labs, a world class lab with state-of-the-art characterisation and testing facilities.
