FMM specializes in the design and manufacture of a wide range of full and hybrid ceramic weld/guide pins for the welding industry as well as components for the automotive, aerospace, optics and electronic industries. Strong and tough FMM zirconia pins offer an extended life with no risk of shorting, reduced part damage due to high wear resistance and high impact strength. Excellent for manual and robotic applications, they can exceed the conventional metal-coated pins by up to a factor of 50. FMM zirconia pins assist in reducing costs through less frequent replacement and reduced production downtime. The new SiAlON with fracture toughness of over 10 MPa.m1/2 and strength of over 1100 MPa makes it ideal for applications requiring high thermal shock resistance, chemical inertness, high temperature capabilities, and oxidation resistance. Take advantage of FMM's years of R&D in advanced ceramics and experience in manufacturing ceramic products in a wide range of applications.
