If pieces of sheet metal are welded to one another, they must be positioned exactly relative to each other, as even slight inaccuracies will impair the quality of a processed component. Ceramic positioning and fixing pins can withstand weld spatter, extremely high temperatures and high mechanical loads much better than conventional pins made from hardened steel – proven by the fact that the service life of ceramic positioning elements is 40 times longer.
As a result, positioning and fixing pins made from high-performance ceramics do not need to be replaced as frequently, plants can be operated with fewer interruptions while process and servicing costs are significantly lower.
Positioning elements made from high-performance ceramics are used at various points in car manufacturing, including in car body construction.
