Market Leadership

Family business since 1984. SCERAM advanced ceramics is a family business specialising in precision machining of technical ceramics. Advanced ceramics are the ideal substitution for conventional materials when their limits of use are reached. Thanks to our “applications/materials” expertise, we guide our customers to the solutions to match their requirements, selecting the suitable material to meet with the specification and always taking the technical requirements laid down by the different production processes on board.

Special Know How

SCERAM advanced ceramics has full control of the machining of each material it proposes. It has developed a specific machining technic for polycrystalline and monocrystalline ceramics, called the LOW STRESS MACHINING PROCESS® which limits if not eliminates the stresses built up inside the material.

Certificates

Quality and traceability SCERAM advanced ceramics is ISO 9001 certified, version 2015 and works exclusively with ISO certified partners and suppliers thereby guaranteeing the quality and traceability of the materials used.
