Custom-made Ceramic
and Glass Components

Machinable Ceramics

Machinable ceramics allow ceramic components to be made without the delay or expense of conventional ceramic manufacturing processes.

We offer a range of materials and hold stock of bar, rod and plate for the most popular types.

We also supply finished components.
