We want to thank everyone who visited GBC Advanced Materials at booth number 1131 during this year’s Ceramics Expo in Cleveland’s Huntingdon Convention Center.
The Expo was a wonderful experience, providing unique insights into the latest developments in applications and manufacturing of technical ceramics. The conference brought us up to date on the uses and processing of ceramic materials and explored the critical role ceramics will play in ‘enabling a clean, efficient and electrified future’.
Day one focused on ‘Sustainability and Innovation’ and day two delivered the latest on ‘Materials and Processing’.
The Expo featured experts from across the industry, discussing topics like additive manufacturing, energy storage, CMCs, 5G technology, and much more.
We were very pleased to see the interest in GBC Advanced Materials. Our precision glass and ceramic parts are used in electronics and computer peripherals, medical equipment, aerospace, communications, sensors and analytical equipment, automotive applications, and more. Our goal is achieving excellence in the field of advanced ceramics, starting with high precision, durable parts and following through to dedicated customer service, a culture of continuous improvement, and on-time, on-budget delivery.
In one recent advancement, we’ve repurposed one of our roller hearth kilns to run at a lower temperature. This gives us two primary kilns, with one running at 1650°C and the other at 1290°C.
This gives us the ability to feed part runs according to firing needs, rather than adjusting kiln temperature from job to job.
As a consequence, we’ve reduced order lead time on some parts to as short as 2-4 weeks. On most orders, our production is often in the 4-6 week range, altogether giving GBC a 2-4 week advantage over our competitors.
