This quantity is the lawsuits of the third ecu Symposium on Engineering Ceramics, held in London, 28-29 November 1989, lower than the auspices of IBC Technical companies Ltd. The Symposium periods have been chaired by way of Eric Briscoe, who additionally brought the Symposium with the very acceptable evaluation 'Ceramics in Europe'. The time period 'engineering ceramics' is often taken to intend a gaggle of detailed high-strength and heat-resistant ceramic fabrics constructed nearly solely for the complicated inner combustion engine of the following century. it isn't constantly absolutely preferred that prime grade tremendous microstructure ceramics either one of the oxide and of the non-oxide periods, whether or not they be termed engineering, fantastic, exact, complex, structural or technical, were aiding numerous diversified and ecocnomic industries over many a long time. certainly, in a few respects those fabrics will be considered as traditional advancements from the lengthy­ validated refractories box, and the excellence among an engineering ceramic and a refractory can develop into blurred, because the contribution during this quantity on 'Nitride Bonded Carbide Engineered Ceramics' exhibits. it really is of value that during Japan, for instance, a lot improvement paintings within the engineering ceramics box used to be initiated through the refractories industries, trying to diversify almost certainly yet doing so at the foundation oflong adventure within the refractories sector. the most goal of this Symposium was once to aid engineers and architects to evaluate the current kingdom of the sphere of engineering ceramics.

Hybrid Silicon Nitride Bearings 39 whereas there are several methods of producing ball preforms - cold isostatic pressing, injection moulding, die pressing, and compression moulding. Ball preforms can be soft machined in the green state to improve dimensional quality. Densification by pressureless sintering tends to produce dense material, but usually with some residual porosity which leads to poor rolling contact fatigue resistance.

T Primary Processing I n the early stage of development of ceramic bearing components, the starting material was hot-pressed silicon nitride which was available in the form of discs or slabs. Ball, roller and ring blanks were then machined from tl1ese slabs using diamond tooling as illustrated in Fig. 1 for ball blanks. Such machining operations were time consuming and expensive and obviously not suited for high volume production, with the added factor of poor material utilisation. Clearly, net-shape manufacturing methods are needed for the efficient production of ball and roller blanks.
