Home About Events 2019 April 30 Ceramics Expo 2019 Ceramic Solutions that Beat the Heat at Ceramics Expo 2019 Ceramics Expo 2019 is North America’s premiere exhibition and conference for the advanced ceramics industry, bringing together companies that manufacture, supply and build the technologies for high performance ceramics. Ceramics Expo takes place at the I-X Center in Cleveland, OH, from April 30 - May 1, 2019. Since the last Ceramics Expo, Materion has added an OptiPro Systems OptiSonic 550X ultrasonic mill to our factory. This ultrasonic machining center enables us to manufacture complex beryllium oxide (BeO) and alumina (Al2O3) technical ceramic parts at lower cost for a range of industrial, aerospace, and military applications. We have also developed the capability to produce large format BeO ceramics in sizes not currently available anywhere else in the world—up to 380mm (15”) in diameter and up to 6.35mm (1/4”) thick. This enables improved performance in applications that would benefit from the high thermal conductivity (285 W/m•K) of BeO but that have, until now, been limited to ceramics with lower conductivity such as alumina or aluminum nitride (AlN). Learn more about our range of BeO advanced ceramics (highest min. TC of 325 W/m•K) and our durable Durox® alumina ceramics. Visit Materion at booth #371 to discuss your applications for our thermally conductive BeO ceramics and durable Alumina ceramics.
