Manufacturing process


Combining different materials in one component

Two production workers can be seen from inside a press machine.

Even when pressing is used as an economical mass production process, excellent tolerances can be produced: The achievable accuracies are almost comparable to those of components made from ceramic injection moulding. Even complex geometries can be mapped to a certain degree.

Pressing as a highly technical process with best results

Shortened manufacturing process for even more economical series production

Semi-finished ceramic product from the pressing process.

An essential feature of pressing is the starting material, a special pressed granulate: Since the granulate has a lower binder content, the thermal process for post-treatment of the component can be significantly shortened. This speeds up the manufacturing process enormously – and ensures greater economic efficiency. High reproducibility and consistent quality are ensured by a high degree of automation.
