Doubling of Capacity for Ceramco's Additive Manufacturing
Additive Manufacturing for Ceramic Components… Rapid Prototyping & Production Quantities
A second Lithoz machine is now online and in production, effectively doubling additive manufacturing capacity. Recent work on these machines include very precise features such as holes and wall thicknesses smaller than the “normal” capability envelope. The learning curve on this second machine will be quite short as Ceramco’s first machine (the first installed in North America) has been in operation for almost four years.
Most recently, Ceramco has additive manufactured parts for the medical device industry. A field bringing new challenges and even more stringent requirements we are successfully meeting.
Learn more about Ceramco's additive manufacturing in a brief video from Thomas Henriksen, Ceramco's President.

Ceramco, Inc. Expands E-Commerce Fastener Portal Availability to the Global Marketplace
Ceramco, Inc. (Center Conway, New Hampshire) announces it has expanded the 24/7 availability of its e-commerce portal: https://www.ceramicfasteners.com from U.S. only to the global* marketplace. Orders received before noon Eastern Standard Time (M-F) ship same day.
All major credit cards accepted. Purchase orders accepted from Ceramco customers with established credit. Orders ship via United Parcel Service, with options dependent upon the order’s destination. Buyers outside the U.S. are responsible for all tariffs, taxes, and customs fees at time of delivery.
Now users of solid ceramic machine screws, bolts, flat washers and hex nuts, outside the U.S., can select from a comprehensive inventory of solid ceramic flat, pan, hex or cap head styles, in either Phillips, slotted or socket as is applicable, in both U.S. inch standard and metric sizes. Most styles and sizes available in either alumina or zirconia.
Fastener sizes range from: #0-80 to 3/8″-16 (U.S. inch) and M2 to M8 (metric). Flat washer sizes range from: #0 to 1” (U.S. inch) and M2 to M20 (metric). Available compositions, sizes and lengths vary and may be dependent upon material properties and performance characteristics. Most recently Ceramco added British Standard washers in sizes: M2, M3, M4, M5, M6 and M8.
These fasteners are intended for scientific instruments, laser chambers, medical devices, fuel cell stacks, and other industrial applications in which metal alloy fasteners or plastic fasteners fail, or simply do not possess the properties demanded by the harsh environments in which they must perform. They are resistant to heat and corrosion, are non-conductive, can provide leak free connections, hold a vacuum and are non-out-gassing.
All Ceramco’s ceramic fasteners are 100% net shaped in solid ceramic and then fired to full density. Ceramco stock ceramic fasteners are never machined or fatigued from harsh grinding.
* Excluding those countries embargoed by the U.S. Government.

Ceramco, Inc. Achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification
Ceramco customers benefit from an even more comprehensive quality management system.
In the manufacturing of custom ceramic components, the first three considerations are: Quality; Delivery; and Customer Service. Ceramco’s ISO 9001:2015 management system certification is the foundation upon which we assure the necessary standards are met for us to deliver on these promises. Ceramco re-certification from 9001:2008 to the newer 9008:2015 standard was completed this month.
ISO 9001:2015 is easier to use in conjunction with other management system standards. It places significantly higher requirements on Ceramco than the previous version of the standard. Changes include a greater focus upon both risk assessment and the customer’s perspective. Ceramco’s audit was performed and certified by NQA, Acton, MA USA.
“If improving your management system also results in improved customer satisfaction, why then wouldn’t a company pursue it?” said Thomas Henriksen, Ceramco’s President. “The ISO 9001:2015 certification assures the necessary management system is in place, so that later we can reap its benefits in production. It is a ‘win-win’ situation for both Ceramco and its customers and it doesn’t end there. Ceramco wants to know if we delivered on our promises and (if we didn’t) what we can do to improve. Customers are encouraged to provide their feedback via our website.”
