Grinding of a filling table top made of alumina.

Both, the dimensional accuracy and surface quality are of great importance for the realization of high standard advanced ceramic components. In many cases this requires a final machining process, i.e. a finishing process after sintering, which is very cost-intensive. The processing of component systems with ceramic components is also increasingly focused.
