Caliber and guide rollers made of silicon nitride for welding or forming technology are characterized in particular by their high strength, wear, high-temperature and thermal shock resistance.
Furthermore, the low density as well as the low adhesion tendency to metallic semi-finished products and components complement the positive property spectrum. In this way, particularly long service life of the components as well as their bearings can be achieved and maintenance-related downtimes can be minimized.
Another advantage is, when the pipes are heated by induction no eddy currents will be caused in the welding pipe. So the energy efficiency of the welding process can be increased.
Of course, other components for welding technology can also be manufactured from ceramics, such as welding pads and centering pins.
