“Proven Technology” from CeramTec: BIOLOX®delta – Know-How in Large Scale Production
Experts claim that ceramics are alive because each lot has its very own characteristics. To recognize them and to optimize the process each time remains one of the unique challenges in the production of ceramics. Of course, at the same time quality must be maximized, particularly when dealing with ceramic implants. Always meeting the required parameters, even in large scale production, calls for know-how and experience. For more than 40 years and with over 13 million implanted components CeramTec/DE has demonstrated its mastery of this skill even in production runs with a seven-digit volume per year. Uwe Kemmer, Director Production, gave Ceramic Applications an insight in the production of heads and cup inserts for hip arthrosplasty.
