A100 Variant of Alumina: The Ideal Material for Components Exposed to Heavy Wear in Textile Machines
Major challenges are imposed on the processing of threads, fibres 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. Contact surfaces require resistance to abrasion and high surface quality to prevent the thread from wearing or breaking. Technical ceramics and alumina materials have shown excellent results in these challenging applications. Sembach, the specialist supplier of technical ceramics, has shown how the full potential of alumina can be used by developing A100, the new super fine-grained C799 high-performance ceramic.
