Custom Ceramic Tooling Fabrication
Service Detail from Insaco, Inc.
Ceramics offer unique properties that can dramatically improve performance of critical parts in application. Alumina ceramic is extremely hard and wear resistant even at extreme temperatures and harsh conditions.
It is therefore ideally also suited for fixtures and tooling. Silicon carbide, which is an even harder ceramic, can be produced with thermal conductivity higher than that of steel or iron. Zirconias are the toughest of common ceramics, and can withstand repeated impact. See the Designer's Guide for an overview, or contact Insaco sales engineering to discuss feasibility of your design concept.
Since 1947 we have been a precision machining and polishing fabricator of parts from all technical ceramics, sapphire, glass and quartz. We machine these materials to very precise tolerances (many times measured in millionths of an inch) for dimension, flatness, wedge and roundness or cylindricity. Our customers typically have a critical application that requires extremely tight tolerances in ultra-hard materials. We also have the capability to grind and polish spherical radius parts in a variety of hard materials, both inside and outside diameters, to optical requirements.
