A design and manufacturing company from southern Ireland recently acquired two pieces of equipment that allow them to better serve the heat treating world.

Ceramicx, a designer and manufacturer of ceramic infrared heating elements and complete turnkey infrared heating systems and ovens for industrial and commercial applications, recently purchased an Excetek wire EDM machine and an EDM hole drill from Warwick Machine Tools.

Ceramicx products and systems serve a number of industries, including medical, automotive, and aerospace. For such customers, they carry out processes requiring the use of controlled “radiant” heat, such as thermoforming, preforming, pressure forming, welding, non-contact drying, spot heating.
