Take Advantage of the Machineable Properties of Macor from Goodfellow

MACOR machinable glass ceramic from Goodfellow offers researchers, product designers and machinists cost-saving advantages over working with traditional ceramic materials.

MACOR machinable glass ceramics available from Goodfellow.

First, MACOR is machinable with ordinary metalworking tools rather than expensive diamond grinding equipment. Second, machined components do not require post-firing after machining is completed, entirely eliminating a production process and reducing the time between design and realisation.

The high-precision and complex shapes achieved with MACOR possess exceptional characteristics:

  • Maximum use temperature of 1000ºC
  • Strong and rigid
  • Radiation resistant
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Can be highly polished

Because of these outstanding properties, MACOR is used in a wide range of applications:

  • Electronics/semiconductor industry - precision coil formers
  • Laser industry - spacers, reflectors and cavities
  • High vacuum industry - thermal breaks, coil supports and vacuum feedthroughs
  • Aerospace/space industry - Retaining rings, supports and components
  • Nuclear industry - fixtures and reference blocks in power generation
