Whether at home, in the office, in industrial manufacturing or on the road: We are surrounded by products made from technical ceramics that deliver peak performance – and we usually don’t even realize it.
They are used where other materials reach their limits: under enormous stress, in extreme temperatures, under current – and even in the human body. They provide reliable solutions in all types of industrial production and high-tech applications. Technical ceramics get us safely and comfortably to where we are going and provide us with clean energy using more efficient technologies. We communicate digitally on smaller devices and benefit from improved quality of life.
Discover with CeramTec the world of advanced ceramics and let us develop further future-oriented ceramic solutions together.
The applications of technical ceramics are as diverse as the advantages of ceramic high-performance materials.
In industry alone, our solutions can be found in around 200 products & applications. Let us inspire you and discover our diversity - practically sorted by products & applications, operation areas and materials.
Advanced ceramic materials make applications possible today that were virtually inconceivable just yesterday. Due to their unique material properties, technical ceramics are considered to be one of the most efficient materials of our time.
The CeramCreator, our online configuration tool, makes it easier for you to find the right product and the right material via a simple input mask. Initially, customised products from the cutting tool sector as well as substrates can be configured quickly and efficiently - other product lines will follow.
- Direct input of product and material requirements
- Upload option of CAD files and automated live pre-visualisation in the 3D model (for substrates)
- In a maximum of six steps to the desired product!
The CeramTec Group is represented worldwide by its many subsidiaries. With over 3,500 employees worldwide and production sites and subsidiaries in Europe, America and Asia, CeramTec has an international presence.
Maximum flexibility, time and cost savings and highest product quality: 3D printing technology impresses with numerous, often decisive advantages. At CeramTec, more than 100 years of expertise in the field of advanced ceramics meet the spirit of innovation. We provide you with competent support in product development, from the initial idea to the finished product.
Together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology "IISB" in Erlangen, Germany, we have developed innovative cooling solutions for power electronics in e-mobility drive trains.
New possibilities with highly thermally conductive CeramCool® ceramic heat-sinks made from alumina and aluminum nitride for thermal management of high-power electronics, photovoltaic, LED and other applications.
For over 60 years the CeramTec’s SPK® brand has stood for powerful, efficient design in machining processes with ceramic cutting tools, PcBN grades and cermets. Thanks to its matching tooling systems and comprehensive application expertise, the CeramTec SPK® Solution Team is able to create practically oriented solutions in the fields of automotive engineering and aerospace, the transmission and bearing industry, in mechanical engineering and in wind power.
Electrical and optical Ceramaseal® components with ceramic parts such as electrical feedthroughs, NPT feedthroughs, coaxial connectors, isolators, multi-pin connectors, viewports, thermocouples, terminals, and accessories are just some of the specialties of the CeramTec experts in North America.
Cyrol silicon nitride bearing rollers from CeramTec meet the technical requirements for roller bearings according to the ASTM F2730/F2730M Class I Standard for martketable prices: For needles, cylindrical rollers, barrel rollers, tapered rollers and spherical rollers.
Components made from ROCAR® silicon carbide ceramics are extraordinarily hard, wear-resistant and possess excellent thermal conductivity properties. Corrosion, abrasion or erosion by liquid media are a thing of the past with ROCAR®, as is wear due to friction. What’s more, this material can also be used in the food and beverage industry because silicon carbide is non-toxic.
