            Custom-made Ceramic
            and Glass Components

            Electrical Applications

            Glass and ceramics are both excellent electrical insulators. The dielectric properties of ceramics are used in capacitance and microwave applications.

            Examples include:

            High voltage insulator

            Machined MACOR® components provide very high dielectric strength in high-voltage applications.

            Machined quartz insulators are used in a similar way.

            Feed throughs

            Glass-to-metal seals provide electrical insulation while allowing hermetic packages to be made.

            Capacitance standards

            High accuracy disks in glass and ceramics are used as capacitance standards.

            X-Ray equipment

            Metal-ceramic assemblies are used in X-Ray tubes.

            Fish spine beads

            These interlocking beads are used to insulate wires, particularly at high temperature.
