Technical ceramics for forming technology
Wire drawing – In this well-established system Kyocera stands out by offering high-quality products, that can help reducing wear and optimizing production steps. Due to its decade-long experience Kyocera Fineceramics Europe GmbH achieves an excellent product quality. Furthermore Kyocera supports its partners in any issues of the wire drawing process. Our employees are always happy to provide their customers with competent advice, whether it is the use of lubricants, the correct draft, assistance if wire breaks occur or if there is excessive wear on the ceramic parts. Thanks to their excellent network in the industry and comprehensive knowledge, our experts can quickly help you in all questions questions about the wire drawing process. KYOCERA cones and capstans are available in yellow and white zirconia. Also tempered or high-polished surfaces are feasible.
Tube mashining – Expanding, bending, forming. No problem with mandrels and dies from Kyocera. Tools made of technical ceramics from Kyocera with their convincing material properties are a good choice in this area. High wear resistance and thermal and chemical resistance, ensure a excellent durability. In addition, low adhesion and diffusion tendency prevent cold welding, which guarantees our customers a high degree of process reliability. Furthermore, the use of ceramic tools could eliminate the need for lubricants when machining certain materials, which would make subsequent, costly cleaning unnecessary.
