Ceramic Replaces DLC

A sliding block made of steel coated with DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) has
been replaced with an injection-moulded Si3N4 component. Crucial for the
ceramic sliding block with improved material properties was to set up a
dedicated manufacturing process for large-volume manufacturing. This
success story relates the background to the cooperation between Nidec
GMP GmbH and FCT Ingenieurkeramik GmbH with statements from the
two partners. NIDEC GPM GmbH has been part of the AMEC business
sector of the Japanese Nidec Corporation since 2015. The combination of
NGPM pump technology with NIDEC’s motor technology shows great
potential for the development of electrically powered pumps.
