Advanced ceramics firing, Riedhammer plays pivotal role in Tehran

Riedhammer, the Sacmi Group's world-leading designer and producer of industrial kilns for ceramic sanitaryware and technical ceramics, recently took part in the 11th edition of the bi-annual symposium organised by the Iranian Ceramic Society, held in the capital of Tehran as part of the second International Conference on Ceramics (16-18 May 2017).

On Tuesday 16th May the company played a high-profile role in the symposium with a presentation titled “High temperature firing technology for advanced ceramics”. Given by Riedhammer's Hartmut Weber, the presentation illustrated the smooth synergy between Riedhammer, Sacmi Imola and Sacmi Team (the corporate Division that brings together the Group's best technical ceramic skills on the technology and research fronts).

"Thanks to this high level team", explains Weber, "the Group has developed major, innovative special ceramic firing solutions with applications ranging from electric mobility to renewable energy and emissions control". The presentation focused on the high temperature firing of advanced ceramics. Its applications include automotive battery components, metal powder sintering and the effective handling of special ceramics of complex geometry and shape.

The talk also examined technology for the management of debinding and binding agents in the manufacture of technical ceramics (e.g. ceramic honeycomb structures and filters for treating items that can have a binder, plasticizer or other organic substance content of 25% or more): a field right on the cutting edge of advanced ceramic heat treatment and firing process efficiency enhancement, a field in which Riedhammer provides advanced solutions such as the innovative Low-O2-Process.
