Pieces of Advanced Technical Ceramics

APPLICATIONS IN THE MARKET

Steelceram creates prototypes and pieces of advanced technical ceramics for any industrial sector that requires the special characteristics of our ceramic materials.

Here is a selection of some of products we have developed:

AUTOMOTIVE

Resistance welding: The process of resistance welding is based on joining two metals by melting the material with a very strong electrical current for a short time through a very small surface area. Zirconia centering pins and positioners are used to guarantee a good positioning of the parts and to ensure the result meets the tolerances.

MIG / MAG welding: The welding process by arc under protective gas with consumable electrode is based on joining two metals by melting the material. The arc is made by an electrode composed of a continuous wire and the parts to be joined, being this protected from the surrounding atmosphere by gas. For this operation, silicon nitride protection nozzles are used.

WIRE AND TEXTILE MANUFACTURING

Wire drawing is the forming operation in which the section of a metal wire or rod is reduced by running it through a conical hole made by a tool called mandrel. Pulleys and pins in this type of industry should have anti-wear properties in which Alumina and Zirconium oxide are desirable materials.

PAPER INDUSTRY

In the paper industry, large sheets of paper are produced which are then cut by circular knives. The edge of the tool is subject to considerable wear during its lifetime and very hard materials are required to preserve the cutting properties. Materials such as Zirconium Oxide are suitable for this process as the cutting of the tool is extended over many cycles of use.

ELECTRONICS

In the industry of electronic products, positioners and grippers are used to assemble components that require dielectric properties and resistance to wear resulting from the hardness of silicon parts in electronic circuits. Technical ceramics are the perfect material for positioners and grippers that are in contact with silicon.

STAMPING AND DEEP DRAWING (HOT OR COLD)

Technical ceramics are used to ensure a good finish in stamping processes. For example, in the packaging industry. Zirconia allows mirror surface finishes with anti-wear properties and good mechanical strength, replacing metal parts that leave marks on the final product.

PISTONS FOR MEDIUM AND HIGH-PRESSURE PUMPS

Steelceram manufactures custom-made parts in alumina ideal for medium and high-pressure pumps for the industrial sector. In applications where high durability is required after many cycles of use, high hardness and high precision are required. Technical ceramics are ideal for their durability and resistance to chemical and abrasive agents in the agricultural, hydro washing and chemical industries.

JEWELLERY

Jewellery is a constantly evolving sector in which new materials are changing fashion. In recent years technical ceramics are being implemented as a trend-setting new material beyond cubic zirconia. Prestigious luxury brands have implemented zirconia and synthetic corundum in their new collections. From Steelceram comes the blockchain jewellery brand Zebra Barcelona.

METROLOGY GAUGES AND MEASURING FIXTURES

Steelceram is constantly developing products to improve the efficiency of our customers’ production processes. Therefore, we carry out studies to be able to comply with quality and durability standards in our products.
In the world of metrology, we have developed specific materials to make gauges and measuring tools in ceramics. These materials will not suffer wear against steels and have a thermal expansion coefficient that is much lower than that of any metal.
The gauges can range from simple part positioning with manual fasteners, to more complex processes where automatic operations are required to save measuring time. With the materials developed in Steelceram we increase the useful life of these gauges, as well as their precision in more extreme situations where temperature, corrosion and external agents can deteriorate the most critical components of the tools.

AGRICULTURE

In the field of agriculture abrasive chemicals are used for the pesticide. The nozzles in the sprayers must ensure the tolerance of the outlet hole for the correct flow. The technical ceramic is a great material for this type of applications since its resistance to abrasion guarantees the correct operation in this type of applications.

BIOMEDICINE

In the biomedical industry, inert materials are required to be biocompatible and not to react with the tissues of the human body. The technical ceramics such as Alumina do not react chemically to foreign agents, and they are the best option for dental prosthesis and implants ensuring longevity once implanted in the human body.
