Four ceramic tooling parts used in the battery industry.

Why Choose Ceramics Instead of Steel?

Give your operation the benefits of a new life span of 4 to 6, to even 10 times longer. Your operation could have zero downtime associated with replacement parts, earn immediate ROI (return on investment), see an impressive impact on price performance ratio, and lower overall cost of operations.

Technical ceramics are not your standard pottery ceramics. Our ceramics are one of the few materials in the world having such a high level of both toughness and hardness. Technical ceramics outperform steel, last longer than metal, and survive greater extremes of heat, pressure and tonnage.

We offer high wear resistant ceramic and cermet materials. They have phenomenal properties with increased toughness and wear. This provides the added leverage to increase capacity and bottom line profit. Our nano ceramics have an optic smooth surface finish designed to reduce friction, improve self lubrication, increase insulation, and are electrically conductive and even magnetic.

Benefits of Ceramic Technology

  • 4-5x wear life of steel punches and dies
  • Drastically reduces powder sticking to tip and barrel
  • Material technology reduces need to add lubrication
  • Shut down for maintenance is far less
  • Reduces the risk of metal toxicity
  • Meets CFR 21 and leach test, metal detectable
  • Material density slows bacteria growth
  • Green and environmentally friendly

INNEX has an ever-expanding portfolio of solutions for a growing list of industries around the world. Experts in all aspects of tooling, INNEX invests significant time and effort every year developing products that separate us from the competition. 

Battery Unit

With worldwide distribution capabilities, we currently have global customers in the US, Asia, Europe and South America consisting of some of the largest battery brands. We have a portfolio of Ceraminator™ material and custom blended Ceraminator Plus™ material. Compared to traditional steel parts, our ceramic parts are stronger, have greater wear resistance and are cost-effective. Its lightweight material makes it less expensive in price and freight. Ceramic dies with color-coded plastic jackets provide many advantages for battery manufacturing.

Pharmaceutical Unit

INNEX’s ceramic technologies are the only ceramics in the world to meet FDA compliance CFR 21 and withstand the high demand in a pharmaceutical production environment. Our metal detectable ceramic will keep running long past old steel and will not clog or still, commonly known as picking and sticking. Your production equipment will keep running and throughput and capacity will increase significantly. This material is extremely hard with a smooth surface. It feels and performs as if self-lubricated.

Pump & Metering Unit

Replacement parts can be very expensive. INNEX can save you significant money. We produce parts for the largest battery companies of the world at a fraction of the cost. We can produce any size or shape for pumping equipment replacement parts. Ask about our portfolio of custom blended Ceraminator Plus™ powders that feature extremely hard and smooth self-lubricating surfaces. We have full metal machining and heat treating, plastics integration assemblies to reduce weight and cost and corrosion, vast knowledge of  all aspects of the pump industry and its components, and lastly, worldwide distribution.
