IPS Ceramics - New Truck and Livery

IPS Ceramics’ New Truck (and New Competition)

Posted by Tom Evans on 09-11-2022

We at IPS Ceramics have recently updated our delivery truck which we use to deliver ceramic products throughout the country to a newer, more efficient model. As part of this, we’ve also taken the opportunity to update the livery. The design is based on the design made for our conference room wall (the creation of which you can read about here). This design can also be found on our expo stands, business cards, email signatures and more. We think you’ll…

How 3D Printed Ceramics Are Made

Posted by Tom Evans on 19-08-2022

3D printing is quickly becoming the preferred manufacturing process for customers seeking small quantities of ceramic shapes with complex designs. Using CAD software and specialist technology, 3D printers allow you to produce ceramic shapes that a) have complicated designs with tiny features that would be unachievable through other methods, b) are more economic to produce in lower quantities, and c) are simpler to change and update the designs of over time. IPS Ceramics provides bespoke 3D printed pieces (amongst many…

The race is on to reduce the price of electric vehicles (EVs). In November 2020, the UK Government announced its plans to accelerate a greener transport future through a two-step phase-out of petrol and diesel cars to be enacted by 2035. Joe Biden’s presidency – still only a few months old – has also announced a range of green policies including the replacement of the 645K federal vehicle fleet with electric cars and an increased level of funding for green…

IPS Ceramics - Tungsten Carbide

Tungsten Carbide: Metals and Ceramics, Working as One

Posted by Tom Evans on 31-03-2021

Strong and dense, you’d be forgiven for thinking that tungsten carbide is a metal. In reality, it’s a metal/ceramic hybrid, combining the properties of metals and ceramics into a material suitable for the toughest applications. Tungsten carbide is a chemical compound made by reacting tungsten metal with carbon. Pure tungsten metal has excellent heat and corrosion resistance but is soft enough to be cut with a hacksaw. By introducing carbon, you greatly increase the hardness until it’s almost as hard…

Powering the Future: How IPS Ceramics help the EV Battery Industry

Powering the Future: How Ceramics are Used to Make EV Batteries

Posted by Tom Evans on 26-01-2021

With green movements on the rise and many countries looking to reduce their carbon footprint, the world is seeing massive growth in electric vehicle battery production. The race is now on to develop an industry standard battery which costs less, recharges quicker, holds more charge and lasts longer. As with most modern technologies, ceramics are a surprisingly important part to the battery production process. Here are merely two ways that ceramics contribute to sustainable travel. The average battery is made…
