General machine construction

Technical ceramics are often used within the general machine building industry. Because the properties of the different grades of ceramics are very different, the field of application is also very diverse.

Reasons to use technical ceramics in machine building include: high resistance to wear and good corrosion resistance. Insulation (both electrical and thermal) is also an important reason to apply technical ceramics in machine building. Apart from insulation (both electrical and thermal) another important reason to apply technical ceramics in machine building is conductance.
