Today’s measuring and precision instruments must be able to deliver accurate and reproducible results even in demanding production environments. With the increasing integration of measuring and precision technology into the production line, these products are exposed to critical temperature and air humidity fluctuations. Therefore, the accuracy of the resulting measurements essentially depends on the thermal stability of guide elements and moving components.
CeramTec’s specialized silicate ceramic materials for precision engineering and measuring systems are ideally suited to meet specific customer needs while providing impressive value. Components made of silicate ceramics satisfy all of the key demands with regard to tolerance, rigidity and thermal expansion and are marked by their extremely low thermal expansion and constant expansion behavior along with their high rigidity.
