Seeking Expertise for Precision Machining of Ceramic Components

Background / Description

Ceramic components such as the quadrupole mass filters, ceramic orifice plates and bushings, feedthrough caps, washers and heater parts are integral parts of mass spectrometry systems. These ceramic parts are valued for their high strength, high thermal stability and dielectric properties that make them irreplaceable by other classes of materials such as metals in high performance applications.

Due to their excellent hardness and strength, precision machining of these parts to the required dimensions is a challenge and the ability to do so is a valued capability in the industry. Once machined, the cleaning of ceramics is also essential for highly sterilised, low impurity environments.

The company thus seeks experts and consultants with deep hands-on experience and knowledge to help develop fine and precise ceramic machining, and machined ceramic component cleaning capabilities.

Technical Specifications

The client is currently seeking to develop capabilities pertaining to 2 distinct and separate problem statements:

  • Precision machining of certain ceramic components
    • Dimension specifications of up to: +/- 0.002, //0.002, Flat 0.001
  • Cleaning of machined ceramic components

The party(s) will have work closely together with the client to co-develop and establish the various process specifications, parameters and SOPs, to transfer the necessary know-hows and advise or consult on the establishment of the necessary machineries and tools to solve the 2 distinct problems, necessary for the client’s intended application.

Solutions should thus be cost effective and readily scalable. The client is willing to review opportunities from any geographical locations, as well as to explore all reasonable commercial and technical agreements.

One or more expert/consultant/company/research institutes may be identified and contracted to work on one, two or all of the above distinct problem statement.

For more technical details on the requirements, please send in your enquiry.
