Low Cost Production of Ceramic Ferrules Using Nanocrystalline Materials
Vortec proposes to eliminate much of the cost originating from the post ceramic processing machining of single mode ferrules through the use of nanocrystalline sintering aids. Single mode ceramic ferrules made from micro particle size powders u Using a yttria-stabilized zirconia body composition, Vortec will produce a non-agglomerated, nanopowder and blend in calculated proportions with commercially available micro particle size powders to produce ferrule-form compacts. During Phase I, Vortec wi In Phase II, Vortec will develop pilot plant scale equipment for production of ferrules using nanosized yttria-stabilized zirconia powders.
