Safe practices: Coronavirus affects ceramic manufacturing businesses—and presents new opportunities

In this third issue of Ceramic & Glass Manufacturing, we look at the safe practices some ceramic manufacturers are implementing to continue work in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main story features interviews with representatives from various types of ceramic manufacturing companies, including Steve Houseman (president of Harrop Industries), James Hemrick (senior research engineer at Reno Refractories), and Keith DeCarlo (vice president of technology at Blasch Precision Ceramics). It is followed by a checklist for companies as they prepare to reopen safely.

In an accompanying article, Lucideon group ceramic processes leader Andrew Perry looks at where problems can occur with processing and how the technical ceramics industry might take up lessons learned in the more traditional, clay-based sectors to reduce those problems. Then, a case study of Ceramiche Mariner’s new facility in Italy shows what digitalization of ceramic manufacturing processes may look like in the future.
