Technical Ceramics

Wafer Processing and Handling

We can draw on over 60 years of experience in producing custom ceramic components. It is due to this experience that our engineers are able to economically manufacture components that provide excellent performance.

Our products and components are used within a wide variety of different applications, across many industries. It is however the production of components for the Semiconductor Industry that we have developed an enviable reputation for exemplary customer service, manufacturing capability and end products of exceptional quality.

We utilise standard material compositions of alumina ceramics to produce custom specified wafer processing and handling components, providing economical solutions in challenging environments.

It is by applying the considerable knowledge and expertise of our engineers to finding solutions that not only meet, but exceed customer expectations that we have served the needs of the semiconductor industry all over the world.
