Electrical insulators now available from Ceramicx
14 February, 2013
There comes a time in every company’s life when it becomes entirely appropriate to share our product and our production output as business expands. That time has lately arrived with us at Ceramicx. Thanks to new investments just made in
Dorst production machinery, we are now very happy to offer steatite-based electrical insulators to other manufacturers worldwide. We anticipate significant demand for companies that need to factor in quality electrical insulators as part of their product manufacturing. Ceramicx manufacturing is now measured and ranked as world-class. And so in our 21st year of business it feels entirely natural and right to offer a coming-of-age addition to our marketplace. The new steatite ceramic dust presses line up alongside our metal working and pressing equipment; thus allowing the full production of metal-based parts that are often part of the Ceramic steatite solution. The metal working and pressing machinery includes a Hurco Machining Centre, a Hurco 6 axis bar fed lathe and press machines between 25 and 75 Ton. In recent years Steatite ceramic dust has proven itself to be the material-of-choice for the manufacture of electrical insulators. It has good mechanical strength with good dielectric properties and a high temperature resistivity of up to 1000degC.
Steatite is typically mostly used in applications where a high temperature electrical insulator is required.
It operates very well in cold switching applications and is also an excellent high voltage insulator. Our own dust press capacity has grown organically and is part of the company’s full manufacturing integration policy. We mainly produce parts such as beads, connector blocks and additional components for our high-temperature Infrared heating applications. We encourage you not to be shy in shopping with us.
