Production of Raw Materials



The processing of materials including crushing as well as thermal processing such as melting, annealing and sintering are indispensable in the production of metallic and ceramic materials. The performance of milling devices and thermal treatment furnaces are continuously enhanced for improved control of these processes. Ceramic products have been contributing largely to the improvement of industrial devices for material production, taking advantage of thermal resistance and abrasion resistance. Ceramic products that play important roles in supporting the material manufacturing industry are introduced in this section.
