IPS Ceramics Develop a New Cast Product Range
IPS Ceramics has been manufacturing cordierite kiln furniture for more than 100 years as Acme, Diamond, Gimson, Hewitt and Dyson. We have a wealth of manufacturing experience and use various forming techniques (including dust pressing, extrusion and roller making) to produce a wide range of shapes for many industries.
Recently, IPS have developed a new range of slip cast shapes that offer several advantages including greatly increased design flexibility and reduced set-up costs, but many users have reported that the major benefit is the smoother, more consolidated surface produced by casting.
IPS cast setters offer:
- A smooth contact surface that reduces sticking and plucking
- Dust-free setters that minimise kiln dirt and maximise yields
- Excellent stability at higher temperatures – can be used up to 1300ºC / 2350ºF
- High resistance to thermal shock during heating and cooling – reduced setter failure in fast firing cycles
IPS offer a wide range of cast shapes, including T-crank and Y-crank designs for glost firing, TFS or total-foot-support setters for once-fired ware. IPS Ceramics is also happy to work with individual dinnerware/tableware makers to produce bespoke profile-setter designs that are perfectly shaped to support your particular product lines during bone China and fine China biscuit firing.
