When designing an advanced ceramic component, many aspects such as operation temperature, atmosphere and mechanical behavior have to be considered. At Texers, we assure our customers in saving cost for their final manufactured product. The ceramic components which can be considered complete in the "as fired" are more cost effective. Diamond grinding after firing contributes to most of expenses in manufacturing ceramic components. We always try to design to net or near net shape in the "green state" which can be machined with standard tooling. This way grinding costs can be reduced.
