Kyocera presents innovative high-performance ceramics products for "New Space" applications
As one of the leading high-performance ceramics specialists, Kyocera will showcase its products at Space Tech Expo 2022, taking place from November 15th – 17th, 2022 in Bremen, Germany.
During its presence at Space Tech Expo in Bremen, Kyocera will be focusing on high-performance ceramics technologies for applications in "New Space". Above all, this branch symbolizes an innovative sector of the aerospace industry that poses extreme challenges for the existing material and supply chain industry. Applications in this field require particularly compact designs that simultaneously offer improved properties and functionalities. For example, these solutions enable the next generation of satellites, propulsion systems as well as other aerospace components and systems.
Kyocera’s high-performance-materials stand for efficiency and variety
Relevant high-performance ceramics materials such as Cordierite are ideally suited for such applications and enable smaller, more compact and light-weighted systems. Compared to competing materials, Cordierite allows a weight reduction of up to 70 percent and also convinces with a minimal coefficient of thermal expansion. Kyocera’s proprietary silicon infiltrated silicon carbide (SiSiC) offers superior strength for designs with cavity structures such as cooling channels or other highly stressed components. In addition, Kyocera has advanced its expertise in the field of oxide high-performance ceramics, which can be used in propulsion systems, for example. Kyocera is also a specialist in high-performance ceramics to metal assemblies for ultra-high vacuum applications.
Perfect properties for the demanding environment of space
Especially in the extreme environment of space, which requires highest precision and reliability, the high-performance ceramics products offered by Kyocera prove their unique properties. Compared to other materials such as metal or glass, high-performance ceramics excel, for example, with high electrical insulation, high tolerance to extreme temperatures and rapid temperature changes, chemical resistance, high wear resistance, as well as high mechanical strength.
All-round-materials for every field
Kyocera manufactures high-performance ceramics components for a wide range of applications – including aerospace systems, industrial equipment, medical devices, and automotive components. To this end, the company offers over 200 different compositions of high-performance ceramics such as Aluminium oxide, Zirconium oxide, Cordierite, Aluminium nitride, Cermet, Mullite, Sapphire, Silicon carbides, Silicon nitride, Aluminium titanate, Yttrium oxide and many more.
