The versatility of technical ceramics in connection technology: a detailed look at their properties

The world of connection technology has made considerable progress in recent years, with innovative materials such as technical ceramics making a decisive contribution. Technical ceramics have many advantages over conventional materials and special properties that enable innovative applications.

From the battery to the braking system: Why nothing works in e-mobility without technical ceramics

Electromobility is on the rise for many good reasons and is playing an increasingly important role in road traffic. Electric cars are more environmentally friendly and quieter than conventional combustion engines, but they also place new demands on the materials used. Due to their special properties, technical ceramics are a much-used material in e-mobility. In this article we present some possible applications of technical ceramics in electric cars and show the advantages for the automotive industry.

What is the part played by technical ceramics in wind turbines?

Global warming and the energy crisis are pushing the expansion of wind power plants. Here, technical ceramics are an important factor, as the material is used in various ways and contributes significantly to the efficiency and performance of green power plants. We give an overview of the different application possibilities and show how the material, which has been used by humans for thousands of years, and modern technology go hand in hand.

A comparison of the sustainability and energy efficiency of silicate & oxide ceramics

Silicate & oxide ceramics are widely used by industry, both materials are characterized by their numerous positive properties. In view of the current energy crisis and the ongoing climate warming, we have compared the two ceramics – with a clear conclusion.

A look back at the trends and topics at Hannover Messe 2022

With only a few exceptions, Steka has been represented at the world’s most important industrial trade fair every year since 1957. After a break due to corona, it was time again this year and we made our way to Hannover at the end of May. How our visit to the Hannover Messe went, what was talked about most and what our conclusion was, we would like to reveal in a short follow-up report.

Methods for the Specification of Novel Ceramics – a Research Project of the University of Innsbruck and Steka

In January 2018, in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck and Luxner Enigeneering ZT GmbH, we launched a joint K-Regio project. After three years of intensive research, we are very pleased to present the first results.

Additive manufacturing processes in technical ceramics – an overview from Steka’s point of view

We at Steka have been dealing with 3D printing for about 10 years and we assume that certain additive shaping processes in the field of technical ceramics will experience a breakthrough by 2025. We take a closer look to the top 3 additive manufacturing processes in technical ceramics.
