CONSTRUCTION RULESOF TECHNICAL CERAMICS
BSQ TECH GmbH offers you professional advice and support in the design of your parts according to the design rules of technical ceramics.
We receive most customer inquiries with a drawing for a metallic component attached. The customer's order and wishes are to produce a similar ceramic component.
The motivation is quickly understood: a special application (e.g. contact with corrosive media) overwhelms the material properties of metals, which are normally sufficient. The ceramic should solve the problem, of course without driving up the system costs.
Often, however, these high expectations cannot be met because the different properties of oxide ceramic materials also require different design principles.
Is designing with ceramics a problem?
Certainly not if you consider some of the basic properties of these materials.
In general, ceramics have different mechanical, chemical, electrical and optical properties than metals. This results in properties that are desirable, but also properties that are generally regarded as impeding the design of components.
Subcritical crack growth
shrinkage during sintering
lower tensile strength
Where is the art of construction?
The art of the designer lies in making use of the strengths of oxide ceramic materials.
