Measuring technology

Their properties, such as electrical insulation, high elasticity modulus, high wear resistance combined with extremely high shape stability, make it easy to see why our ceramics are favoured by measurement engineering. From surveying streets and houses to applications with pressure sensors, there is not much that we would be able to do without technical ceramics.


The important characteristics of our ceramics are predestined to be employed in the field of measuring technology.

Whether as mechanic drives in optical measuring devices, expansion strip supports for pressure sensors, calibration mandrels for high precision measuring machines or electrically insulating or conductive components, ceramic materials are indispensable for reliable and efficient measuring technology.

  • high stiffness
  • highest Young’s modulus
  • low thermal expansion
  • superior electrical insulation
  • best wear resistance
  • new: also electrically conductive
