Advanced Machining Capabilities Announced for Glass Ceramic

Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) recently announced advanced machining capabilities for Corning MACOR® machineable glass ceramic. MTC has developed and supplied components manufactured from MACOR for use in ultra-high or constant vacuum environments, as well as in aerospace and nuclear applications. Fixtures for high-heat electrical cutting operations are also reportedly excellent uses for the material.

More recently, producers of medical components are using the material in complex ceramic assemblies for surgical tools, medical instrumentation, and therapeutic and diagnostic equipment.

MTC Wesgo/Duramic specializes in machining MACOR into complicated parts with precision tolerances, up to 0.0005 in. The material can be machined to a surface finish of less than 20 µin. and polished to a smoothness of 0.5 µin.-Ra. Machining can reportedly be done quickly and inexpensively, with no requirement for post-machining firing.
