State-of-the-art production equipment and a spirit of innovation for uncompromising quality

To us, standstill means a step backwards. We see ourselves as a think tank for innovative solutions in high-performance ceramics.

Our recipe for success?

Production and technology paired with expertise and a spirit of innovation. We place high demands on our products and even higher demands on ourselves. We at H.C. Starck Ceramics therefore commit to an on-going improvement process.

Our goal?

Making ceramic solutions with even more precision, complexity and quality than we are already doing. And we do this along the entire value chain, from powder preparation to the finished component and careful final inspection, all in the company.

What exactly does that mean?

Management of the spray tower systems has been modernized for an efficient workflow. The pressing equipment and pressing processes will soon undergo modernization. Our green machining equipment has already been replaced by state-of-the-art lathes, which allow for the machining of components with large dimensions, as well as turning and milling in a single step. We would like to continue increasing our sintering capacities and have therefore planned new, larger, kilns – of course also with a view to the sintering of promising large-scale components. It was an absolute highlight for us when we upgraded our milling machines to state-of-the-art 5-axis milling machines. These enable us to machine components from 300 mm to 1000 mm and to manufacture complex components with sophisticated structures and dimensions. Last but not least, our grinding machinery was completely modernized. We can therefore guarantee you finishing of high-quality components with accuracies in the μm range.

The combination of state-of-the-art machinery of Industry 4.0 standard and the expertise of our employees are behind our high-quality products and a portfolio of satisfied customers. Are you interested in our high-performance ceramics solutions? We look forward to hearing from you.
