Military & Defense Industry
The military and defense industry uses complex weapons and machinery that require high-precision ceramic grinding. At Quartzite, we go far and beyond to meet the high-standard requirements of this field. We have been a trusted supplier of parts for missiles, radar, and other electronic systems for over 65 years. We continuously support major defense contractors with superior ITAR-registered ceramic, load material, ferrite, silicon carbide, quartz, and alumina components with guaranteed quality and zero defects.
More advanced communication materials made through precision grinding are in demand in the growing field of telecommunications. Items like microwave components, modern radar antennas, wireless telecommunication devices, and ceramics in semiconductors depend on the high standards of precision in ceramic processing that Quartzite offers.
In 1962, Bell Telephone Systems turned to Quartzite to help them process materials crucial in manufacturing Telstar, the first satellite capable of transmitting telephone, data, and TV messages across the ocean. At the time, Quartzite was one of the few companies that could process materials accurately and quickly enough to meet the growing satellite industry’s needs, which has not changed since.
In the energy industry, precision grinding helps to create various power-generating products that require high accuracy, making it an essential process. These products include wind turbine blades, solar panels, and nuclear reactor components.
Quartzite’s precision grinding services are also used to create products used in the oil and gas industry, such as fracking tools and pipelines. With the level of precision we offer, we provide the energy industry with safe products that meet industry-specific requirements, making Quartzite essential in their operations.
Industrial Automation Equipment Manufacturing Industry
In the industrial automation equipment manufacturing industry, precision grinding is essential for creating highly accurate, repeatable products. We can produce a range of tight-tolerance components for this industry, including:
- Gears and gearboxes
- Robotic components
- Industrial valves and seals
- Production line equip
- And more!
At Quartzite, we use precision grinding to create reliable, durable products that are resistant to wear and tear. Some of the industrial automation services we provide include precision ID grinding, CNC grinding, jig grinding, and OD grinding, among others.
The medical industry requires precision grinding for several reasons. First, the human body is an intricate system of moving parts, and any surgical intervention requires precision to minimize the risk of damage to healthy tissue. Additionally, many medical instruments are made of extremely tough materials that can only be machined using precision grinding techniques.
Our in-depth precision and high-quality grinding standards at Quartzite allow us to produce finished medical equipment that you can use in various applications, such as implants, replacement joints, and more. We employ in-depth inspection procedures on all medical components to ensure quality and meet regulatory standards.
