Technical Ceramics for the textile machine industry

Major challenges are imposed on the processing of threads, fibers and yarns in textile machinery as the yarn passes through thread guides and other contact elements at high speed causing extreme wear on these parts. Alumina materials have shown excellent results in these challenging applications.

We were able to develop a special process to refine the powdered source material. A special polishing process is used to achieve particularly high surface qualities for parts made of A100 high-performance ceramic. The material is ideal for use with machine parts exposed to heavy wear.

Some outstanding properties

  • Extremely smooth and virtually non-porous surfaces
  • High material density
  • High hardness
  • Resistance to wear
  • Very fine microstructure

Typical applications in the textile industry

  • Thread guides
  • Contact elements
  • Eyelets
  • Oiling nozzles
  • Rollers
  • Cutters
  • Cutting disks
