CeramTec Offers Custom Traverse Guides

CeramTec North America, Laurens, S.C., has introduced its custom traverse guides, which can help improve quality and consistency in the manufacture of most fiber and yarn types. The guides, which are made up of a ceramic guide insert molded into a body, enhance performance on most machine types and at various take-up speeds.The guides are available in a variety of ceramic compositions and nylon resins, including standard, conductive and toughened aluminas; and zirconias. The diversity of materials allows frictional characteristics to be controlled through wear properties, surface texture, hardness, grain size, dimensional tolerances and porosity.Rapid prototyping of traverse guides is available through CeramTecs Fast Turnaround Prototype Group. The company says it can deliver small quantities of finished prototypes for testing in as little as three to four weeks.
