Elements of high-performance ceramics are used in the automotive industry at various locations, including the body. Reason: Where plates welded to one another, they must be precisely positioned to each other, because even minor misalignments can affect the quality of a processed part.
This task is performed by positioning and fixing pins of high performance ceramics.Spatter, extremely high temperatures and large mechanical load make them much less to create than conventional pins of hardened steel. And with up to 40 times longer service life. The consequence: positioning and fixing pins from high-performance ceramics have to be replaced less often, the plants can run with fewer interruptions, process and maintenance costs are significantly lower. Further applications for ceramic components are in the automotive industry also in forming, assembly and testing tasks in other production lines.
