Company profile

Since 1996, TKC - Technische Keramik GmbH is sppecialized in the development, manufacture and processing of end-contour-true shape and complex ceramics components. Production takes place from prototype to series applying green machining, ceramic injection molding (LP-CIM, HP-CIM) and pressing. Starting with body preparation, followed by shaping and thermal treatment through to hard machining, the entire process chain is applied for solving customer-specific problems. Besides development and production of ceramics components, assembly production by means of active soldering becomes more and more important. Hot casting (low-pressure injection) is the core technology for small-sized components in the small- and medium-scale batch production. TKC has over 40 years experience in this field.
