• 1.What does XMCERA do?

    XMCERA supplies small to medium quantities of metals, alloys, ceramics and polymers for research, development, prototyping and specialised manufacturing operations.

  • 2.What types of advanced ceramic do you supply?

    Advanced Ceramics is unusual as we offer the full range of technical ceramics from machinable glass ceramic and boron nitride through to materials that require diamond grinding like alumina, zirconia, carbides and nitrides. We can machine and supply any advanced ceramic material. This allows us to optimise the material selection and design what is right for you the customer, rather than what is right for our capability.

  • 3.Does XMCERA supply samples of material?

    Yes, we are happy to supply small samples of material for you to test. We can also supply prototype quantities through to volume production to meet your required.

  • 4.I am used to working with metals and plastics. Can you help me with material selection and design of ceramics?

    Yes we can. We have a competent team of technical sales staff with many years experience that can help you chose the right material. Whether it is for wear, thermal management, electrical properties, or something else, we can help you by designing an appropriate component for ceramic manufacture from simple suggestions to more complex solutions.

  • 5.How long will it take for you to send me a quote?

    This depends totally on the complexity of your requirements. For simple items such as bars and rods, we can generally supply a quotation within 12 hours. For more complex items, we should be able to respond within 3 to 4 days.

  • 6.Can I machine the ceramics myself?

    The harder ceramics like alumna and zirconia will require diamond tooling but other materials can be machined. To get the right result it does take time, experience and semi-specialized tooling but it can be done and many of our customers take advantage of this when they need extremely fast solutions in-house.
