We manufacture complex, high-precision ceramic components for metrology equipment according to customer-specific requirements. Components made of technical ceramics have proven to be particularly suitable for the ever-increasing demands made on measuring instruments. We know that whereas conventional products, which can only be made as assemblies of different components, have their limitations with regard to precision, monolithic large-scale components made of high-performance ceramics produce impressive results. That is why we develop and construct these components specifically to your requirements. And this is also how we continuously create new solutions and approaches for metrology equipment and other industries. In order to guarantee the best results, we work in close collaboration with you. You will only get the best possible product if the material properties are optimally used for the design of your ceramic component. In addition, we support our customers along the entire product journey, from development and the production of prototypes and small batches to larger series for measuring instruments components. Due to their superior quality and high degree of precision, our high-performance ceramics make increasingly accurate measurements possible in the practice – even in aggressive environments, and sometimes already in-line during the manufacturing of a product. Another advantage is that with flexible machining options, a large number of contours and sizes can be realized, all the while maintaining great stability and service life at the lowest possible weight.

Ceramic products for metrology.
In StarCeram Si (silicon-infiltrated silicon carbide) H.C. Starck Ceramics has a material that opens the door to completely new concepts and solutions. Since the ceramic material does not shrink during sintering, it is possible to create small structures with high aspect ratios using this material. StarCeram® Si furthermore has some special properties: stiffness, low thermal expansion with high thermal conductivity, low weight and high strength. These properties make it possible to manufacture components characterized by maximum precision of down to 1 mm structure sizes with a great degree of stability and durability. We can produce very thin lightweight structures with an extremely high degree of strength and steadiness with our ceramic materials. With our engineers, we develop innovative concepts for components for measuring instruments, such as for profiles, structural parts, fixtures and many other ceramic parts for metrology. Large-scale components, which can usually only be created as assemblies, are available from H.C. Starck Ceramics as monolithic parts in dimensions of up to 1000 mm x 1000 mm x 650 mm. Give our high-performance ceramics a challenge – we look forward to working with you to develop a solution.
