Macor Components

As you would expect from one of Corning Incorporated’s principal, longest-serving and highly respected distributors of Macor Machinable Glass Ceramic, Precision Ceramics has extensive in-house machining facilities – including 4th & 5th axis machining centres, drilling, grinding, machining, milling, polishing, sawing, tapping, threading and turning of Macor – to enable us to manufacture machinable glass ceramic components to the highest specifications.

A fully controlled inspection facility with co-ordinated measurement system accurate to 0.02mm is also in operation to ensure that our rigorous quality standards are maintained at all times. See also our post on the Composition of Macor in our Macor series from more information on it’s composition, compounds and microstructure.
