GBC Materials, a division of Morgan Advanced Ceramics (MAC), currently offers miniature, dry-pressed alumina. These alumina ceramics reportedly provide a cost-effective solution for demanding applications. The small-pressed alumina components are designed specifically for use in varactors and other miniature electronic devices. Starting with high quality raw materials, GBC reportedly uses precise process controls from milling through spray drying and powder segregation to assure reproducibility and uniform press powder. According to the company, millions of parts per order can be processed using multi-cavity, high volume manufacturing. Parts can be manufactured as small as 0.007 in. inside diameter, 0.010 in. wall thickness and 0.008 in. long.
