In an effort to machine parts to single-digit micron tolerance, Morgan Advanced Materials improved the grinding capability of its technical ceramics.

The company transitioned its process capabilities in response to customer demand for improved tolerances on shafts and bearings for pump applications. The result, the company says, is a more energy-efficient, higher performing pump with reduced wear, improved friction and lower running noise.

Technical ceramics such as alumina and silicon carbide be formulated and fired into exceptional wear- and corrosion-resistant components.
