Following investment in state-of-the-art technology, Morgan Advanced Materials has increased the manufacturing capability of its Technical Ceramics facility in Rugby, UK, commensurate with its strategic growth aspirations.
The business has experienced enviable levels of growth in areas such as ceramic-to-metal brazed assemblies and feedthroughs throughout 2015 and has launched a programme of capital investment to support the increased demand within the market.
The investment delivered an increase in vacuum brazing capacity at the Rugby facility, which specialises in technical ceramics. The investment takes place against a backdrop of increased use of vacuum brazing technology in the ceramic-to-metal brazing process as this enables a wider range of material options to be offered to customers.
The new vacuum furnace will be used for molybdenum manganese (MoMn) brazing and metallised ceramics to mating metal parts as well as active alloy brazing utilising Morgan’s extensive range of active braze alloys (ABAs). Products manufactured using this technology are used in a wide range of applications including electrical feedthroughs for analytical and medical systems, aerospace thermocouples and subsea connectors.
Morgan is committed to strengthening its offering wherever possible in order to fully satisfy demand within the market and it is this philosophy of continuous improvement that underpins the way we do business. With the increased capacity and flexibility that has resulted from the investment, we are now more responsive than ever to the evolving needs of our customers.
