INTERVIEWS AND ARTICLES
Positioning Ceramics in the Growing Energy Storage Market
Ceramics can be found in almost all products and technologies fundamental to a safe and efficient society. Be it our mobile phones, transportation, or in our homes, the versatility of this material allows for many innovations to thrive. One such innovation, which is currently gaining a lot of interest from government and commercial stakeholders alike, is within energy storage applications.
Tom Scaria, Vice President at BassTech International
In this interview, we speak with Tom Scaria, Senior Vice President at leading speciality raw materials supplier, BassTech International, about how his company has adjusted to the changes over the preceding months, and about his predictions for the future.
Ceramics as an Enabling Material for the Future of Connectivity
Connectivity has become the zeitgeist of the 21st century. In a world undeniably governed by digital communication, the emergence of developing technologies to facilitate this global phenomenon continues to expand rapidly.
The exhibition hall at Ceramics Expo provides a unique opportunity for the entire advanced ceramics and glass materials supply chain to meet, network and source new business connections under one roof. Connecting visitors with the right manufacturers and suppliers of cutting-edge advanced ceramic materials and technologies, Ceramics Expo offers a 360° view of the current market, with thousands of solutions from hundreds of specialist suppliers and industry peers.
For a taste of what will be on display at the event, check out a small selection of our exhibitor’s innovative products and services ahead of the show:
Lancaster products’ K-Series High Shear Mixers are the ideal tool for the preparation of powered materials. Their high-intensive action allows for mixing even the most difficult of materials. Powders, slurries, and pastes (with or without water or binders) can be mixed in extremely short cycle times. The mixers are suitable for high throughput applications and have a working capacity of up to 210 cu. Ft/6000L.
The OptiSonic 500 Series, an entry-level ultrasonic machining centers combine from OptiPro Systems combines the quality and precision of OptiPro’s optical grinding machines with the latest Ultrasonic technology for efficient processing of optical glass and ceramic materials. The 500 Series utilizes Ultrasonic vibration during the machining cycle to accomplish rapid material removal, improved surface quality, and maximized tool life when processing soft optical glass or difficult-to-machine hard ceramics.
Goodfellow Corp presents MACOR®, a machinable white ceramic that can be machined with ordinary steel or carbide tools and can be used continuously up to 800c, making it an excellent electrical and thermal insulator. MACOR® is non-wetting and can be bonded to itself as well as to various metals, if the MACOR® surfaces are first metallised.
The CeraFab Lab 3D Printer from Lithoz America is the ideal printer for the cost-effective manufacture of ceramic prototypes and small-scale series. The machine facilitates the production of high-performance ceramics with quality that meets or surpasses that of conventionally manufactured components and helps eliminate entry barriers for new ceramic 3D printing users.
