Precision Ceramics: Why Ours Meet the Demands of Industry Leaders

December 30, 2017

Technology continues to push the limits of what is possible, and ceramic materials play a huge role in determining the pace of change. You can find precision ceramics on the cutting edge in numerous industries, including electric vehicles. Tesla’s new Model 3 sedan, considered to be the first mass-market electric car, boasts a super energy efficient 1,200-volt silicon-carbide power chip, for example. 

IRD Glass works with numerous advanced ceramic materials to create precision ceramics that push the limits of thermal resistance, chemical inertness, durability, conductivity and more. That’s why we are a sole-source provider of precision ceramics to industry-leading companies like Honeywell, Boston Science and Seagate.

Dedicated to Precision Ceramics

In fact, demand for our ceramic components is so great that we formed a sister division, IRD Ceramics, which works with numerous super-hard materials, including Sapphire, IR materials, including alumina, zirconia, silicon nitride and silicon carbide.

Our state-of-the-art equipment, precision ceramic machining and polishing capabilities, and in-house thin film coating facility allow us to produce 100% customized components at low or high volume and at competitive prices.

Procure Precision Ceramics from IRD Glass

With state-of-the-art equipment, slurries, and polishing pads, we manufacture precision ceramics with precision, flatness, and surface finish characteristics. Our components and sub-assemblies accomplish customer-specific technical challenges thanks to superior material selection, unsurpassed customization, and a unique ceramic processing. Many precision ceramic components we create have less than .0005” dimensional tolerance.

With our cell-based manufacturing process, our clients are in the driver’s seat. Custom runs to large orders — no job is too difficult for IRD Glass.
