The 2000 Equipment Digest
Welcome to the first annual edition of Ceramic Industry's Equipment Digest. On the following pages you will find suppliers for various types of equipment used in the ceramic industry, from Agglomerators and Grinding Wheels to Isostatic Presses and Thermal Analysis Instruments, and dozens of pieces of equipment in between. The equipment is separated into five sections--Batching/Material Handling Equipment, Forming/Finishing Equipment, Decorating Equipment, Drying/Firing Equipment, and Instrumentation--so that you can quickly find the type of equipment you are looking for based upon its intended application. Definitions and descriptions are also included for as many pieces of equipment as we could find before we went to press. Think of it as a Materials Handbook for your equipment needs.
However, this is only the beginning--the Equipment Digest is a work in progress. As we continue to add definitions and supplier listings*, our goal is to grow this into the most useful equipment resource in the industry, including component and repair parts as well as equipment consumables.
Keep this edition handy as a quick reference to locate suppliers and basic information about the equipment used in the ceramic industry. But realize that it will evolve with time. If you are looking for a supplier for a piece of equipment not yet listed in this Digest, refer to Ceramic Industry's Data Book & Buyers' Guide either in print or online at www.ceramicindustry.com. And check our website often to find updated definitions in the Equipment Digest, or to suggest definitions of your own.
Your support--and your suggestions--will help make the Equipment Digest a valuable, thorough resource in the years to come.
