MORGAN ADVANCED MATERIALS: Ceramic Pins
This company now offers ceramic pins for sensors, circuit breakers and electronic passive components in a variety of custom material formulations and blends, including alumina and steatite. The pins are reportedly suited for manufacturers of pressure sensors, passive components such as wirewound resistors and inductors, and industrial circuit breakers used in the automotive and aerospace sectors.
The company’s micro-extrusion capabilities reportedly enable the production of ceramic pins in sizes ranging from 0.019 to 0.100-in.. The maintenance of extremely tight tolerances through the sintering process can prevent the need for secondary machining processes like diamond grinding, which may potentially affect the material’s surface porosity or condition. The company has a variety of alumina formulations for applications that can withstand movement or force, with maximum working temperatures up to 3,090°F (1,700°C). Steatite options are available for lower temperature applications up to 1,832°F (1,000°C).
