Oasis Precision provides fired alumina ceramic products as well as value added post-fired ceramic precision CNC and conventional grinding/finishing capabilities.
The Ceramic Process
Aluminum Oxide (Alumina) comes to us in powder form, it is then mixed with “binders”. The material is then pressed to 20,000 lbs. We measure the piece down to the tenth of a thousand (.0001) and afterward, the material will shrink as much as 20%. Shrinkage numbers are 5 places (1.20354), which means we will have to multiply that number to any dimension we build from that block of material.
Diamond machining, green machining, diamond grinding, lapping and polishing operations are all available to produce tight tolerance parts to your specifications.
Complex geometries can be iso-pressed and finished diamond machined or ground to include fine features and thru-hole geometries.
Oasis Precision provides precision machining of a wide variety of shapes of sizes in alumina, zirconia, silicon nitride, steadite, bisque, sapphire, quartz, glass, and aluminum nitride (AlN) ceramic materials.
