Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Instrumentation

We specialize in high-precision components for advanced analytical and engineering instrumentation.

Examples include:

  • Accurately machined alumina components for electrical insulation. Alumina was chosen as the preferred material, as the equipment operated at high temperature and ultra-high vacuum.
  • Prototype and preproduction quantities of complex spacers made from MACOR® machinable ceramic. MACOR® has a particularly high dielectric strength, which is useful for very high voltage application.
  • Quartz capillary tubing for thermal processing of materials prior to analysis by mass spectrometer
  • Purpose-made crucibles in unusual materials, used as evaporation sources
  • Instrument windows, including X-Ray shielding and UV blocking glasses
  • Polished alumina spheres used in check valves for control of corrosive liquids
