Metal Forming Applications
Production Engineering supplies advanced silicon nitride, zirconia, alumina and silicon carbide ceramic solutions for diverse metal forming applications, ultilising their outstanding enginerring properties.
Advanced technical ceramics for use in metal forming applications must possess excellent mechanical strength and toughness, impact, wear and corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance and thermal stability. Syalon and Zircalon (link to syalon and zircalon pin page) ceramics meet these requirements and are available in a range of products including:
Syalon 101 and Zircalon are firmly established in the resistance welding sector, particularly as weld location pins for welding captive nuts to body panels in automotive and commercial vehicle assembly. We manufacture a vast range of standard weld pins.
