Like most material engineers and scientists, you’ve probably dismissed ceramics in the past because you thought ceramic was brittle. But technical ceramics are different from the common ceramics used in pottery, for example. Ceramic is no longer the fragile material associated with the 1970’s but the technology of the future and noted for being a hard, exceptionally smooth surface, and tough. 

The technical family of ceramics is one of the few materials in the world that has properties of both toughness and hardness. We currently provide a huge range of ceramic wear solutions – and we’re developing new ceramics in our labs right now which will be available soon. Common applications include wear resistant components, electronic substrates, spark plug insulators, transparent envelopes for lighting, structural refractories, wear resistant components, ceramic-to-metal seals, cutting tools, abrasives, thermal insulation, catalyst carriers, biomedical implants, and much more. 

For the past 18 years, INNEX has, among many other projects, manufactured parts for the international compaction tooling industry. In our search for harder more durable materials, an intense ceramic research and development program, supported by local universities and ceramic experts, was established. Through this collaboration a unique design, Ceraminator™ evolved which is now a successful part of our US patented product line. Currently, the patented Ceraminator™ line of tools that fight wear is successfully being used in production throughout the battery industry in U.S., European and Asian markets.

The patented Ceraminator™ product line involves a ceramic core rod assembly consisting of a steel housing, a steel mandrel and a ceramic sleeve. The design allows for replacement of the ceramic sleeves and mandrels while reusing the housing. This rework cycle and proprietary high strength ceramic increase tool wear life up to ten times longer by eliminating the need to manufacture entirely new parts; thus resulting in significant cost savings versus continually purchasing disposable replacement parts.

Why Choose Ceramics Instead of Steel?

Give your operation the benefits of a new life span of 4 to 6, to even 10 times longer. Your operation could have zero downtime associated with replacement parts, earn immediate ROI (return on investment), see an impressive impact on price performance ratio, and lower overall cost of operations.

Technical ceramics are not your standard pottery ceramics. Our ceramics are one of the few materials in the world having such a high level of both toughness and hardness. Technical ceramics outperform steel, last longer than metal, and survive greater extremes of heat, pressure and tonnage.

We offer high wear resistant ceramic and cermet materials. They have phenomenal properties with increased toughness and wear. This provides the added leverage to increase capacity and bottom line profit. Our nano ceramics have an optic smooth surface finish designed to reduce friction, improve self lubrication, increase insulation, and are electrically conductive and even magnetic.

Benefits of Ceramic Technology

  • 4-5x wear life of steel punches and dies
  • Drastically reduces powder sticking to tip and barrel
  • Material technology reduces need to add lubrication
  • Shut down for maintenance is far less
  • Reduces the risk of metal toxicity
  • Meets CFR 21 and leach test, metal detectable
  • Material density slows bacteria growth
  • Green and environmentally friendly
