Exciting Advancements for the Ceramic Industry
Regular readers of CI will know that we love to champion the advances that the industry is making in the realm of advanced ceramics and glasses.
If you were lucky enough to attend Ceramics Expo 2016 in April, you would have seen some of the many new technologies and products that are available for today’s ceramic manufacturers and end users of ceramic components. It was great to see the industry come together and celebrate so much innovation. For those of you who might not have been able to make it to Cleveland this year, please turn to “Exploring the Future of the Ceramic Industry” to read about what you missed.
Regular readers of CI will know that we love to champion the advances that the industry is making in the realm of advanced ceramics and glasses, and our June issue is no different. Geoff Randle of Precision Ceramics shares some high-tech applications for advanced ceramics in the medical and dental industries. “Advanced ceramics are leading a new generation of medical and dental innovations worldwide,” he writes. “Their ability to offer cost-effective and yet high-performance benefits make them an exciting material for multiple applications across a broad range of industries.” Learn more in “Technical Ceramics Empower Medical and Dental Advancements.”
Costs are starting to come down while versatility is on the rise for solar modules. As a result, building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPVs) are becoming more attractive options (pun intended) for architects seeking to meet or exceed increasing environmental regulations while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of their projects. “Niche to Mainstream: Photovoltaics Make Architecture Inroads” explores the challenges and opportunities of BIPVs in architectural applications.
