- Behind the global market share of 40%
Continuously solving the issues to meet the needs
Manufacture of products is always accompanied by various issues such as ensuring stable quality and achieving mass production, among others. The global market share of 40% has been attained based on ongoing efforts to meet these issues. With this in mind, we will continuously solve the issues one by one to meet the needs.
- Ceramics are used everywhere
The characteristics of ceramics can be changed, and functions can be added, by using different raw materials and manufacturing methods. Ceramics are used in various fields due to their tenacity, heat resistance, insulation, catalysis, and many other functions. In fact, ceramics are used in unconventional applications including environmental technologies, medical care, automobiles, electronic equipment, and aerospace.
- Auto parts（emission sensors）
- Fuel cells（SOFC cells and stacks）
- Medical equipment（plungers）
Fine ceramics are used in emissions sensors to detect the oxygen concentrations in the emissions.
Fine ceramics are used in the core components of fuel cells.
Ceramics are often used in medical equipment due to their excellent wear and chemical resistance and long service life.
- Environment-related products（honeycomb structures）
- Environment-related products（photocatalysts）
- Electric power-related products（insulators）
Ceramics are used as filters to remove impurities, etc.
Deodorization and disinfection effects are achieved by oxidation-reduction reaction using visible light.
Insulators serve as an important role in distributing electricity safely to households.
- Why ceramics are chosen
If you face the limits of metal and resin materials, it is advisable to consider using ceramics. If you wish to ensure stable operation in severe environments (e.g. high pressure/temperature, corrosion), ceramics may offer an optimal solution.
The wear resistance of ceramics, which is superior to that of metals, helps reduce the frequency of maintenance and parts replacement. The insulation performance excels that of resins and rubber. Photocatalysts have been commercialized by partially covering the surface of titanium oxide particles with ceramics. Ceramics may be used in various applications, from small parts to strong and large structural materials.
In addition, two or more parts may be integrated into a single ceramic part, helping reduce the delivery period and cost. Ceramics offer an overall advantage, not in terms of unit price. In fact, there are many parts that should be made from ceramics. If you recognize some potential, please feel free to contact us. We are ready to answer your questions using samples, etc. and will endeavor to meet your needs.
