Hybrid sintering and non-conventional machining of advanced technical ceramics-HYMaCER
The HYMaCER project, driven by 4 dedicated Hi-Tech SMEs, aims at developing a complete supply chain for large size technical ceramic blanks in order to fulfill their need for economically produced, innovative and difficult to densify technical ceramics, all three parameters which are currently limiting the SMEs’ market expansion. The research will be focused on the fabrication of electrically conductive technical ceramics, combining an oxide matrix with a secondary, electrically conductive phase, by means of the largest world-wide hybrid spark plasma sintering equipment.
