This enables our ceramic products to be used in applications where excellent surface finish and tight tolerances are vital for their success.
Our manufacturing techniques include:
Centreless grinding - for OD grinding of ceramic tubes and rod to 2 micron precision.
Tool post grinding - up to 1000mm long and diameter up to 200mm.
CNC milling – Intricate shapes produced from a range of ceramic materials.
Flat bed grinding – to a flatness of 10 microns over a length of 1000mm.
Lapping - We have both silicon carbide and diamond laps for polishing surfaces to a mirror finish. Size up to 350mm diameter and polish to better than 0.02 Ra.
Polishing – Pump pistons are made by diamond polishing to a finish of better than 0.02 Ra.
Spheres and seats - We can manufacture spheres and seats to a range of sizes, lapped to a gas tight seal.
Drilling – Hole sizes from 2mm to 100mm.
Honing – Internal and external honing of ceramic tubes and rod.
Sawing - We regularly cut ceramic components to size for both high volume and low volume products, with precision to 80 microns.

Ceramic Oxide Fabricators (Australia) | Industrial and Scientific Ceramics
Since 1971 we have been manufacturing and distributing high-tech ceramics for science and industry. Our products are used for abrasion, corrosion, and electrical resistance, laboratory ware, and thermocouple sheaths and insulators.
We make alumina, PSZ zirconia and a variety of other custom-made materials.
Our manufacturing processes include extrusion, injection moulding, casting, welding and machining.
We are the world leaders in zirconia based oxygen sensors for furnace control.
We also import and distribute advanced ceramics.
Our product range includes:
Rod tube & bar from 90mm to 1mm diameter • Oxygen probes for furnace control • solid electrolyte oxygen sensors • laboratory crucibles • low wear clutch parts • wire guides • furnace components • thermocouple components • bearings • water knife nozzles • radar insulators
Alumina ceramics are:
• the most versatile of the advanced technical ceramics
• stronger than the traditional ceramics
• chemically inert - excellent corrosion resistance
• outstanding electrical insulators, even at very high temperatures
• extremely hard - excellent abrasion resistance
• are almost unaltered at 1000°C
• useable up to 1700°
