Ignitor Assemblies
Jan 2009
Morgan Technical Ceramics, ElectroCeramics
BEDFORD, Ohio, Jan. 5, 2009 – Ceramic-to-metal assemblies offer several advantages, including better electrical properties, and impact and thermal shock resistance.

Alberox, a business of Morgan Advanced Ceramics, announces its gas discharge igniter assemblies for CO2 lasers. CO2 lasers are used for cutting plastic, fabrics and glass, as well as for a wide variety of marking, scribing and engraving applications.

Alberox provides the complete assembly, which includes the igniter ceramic manufactured with 99.5% high-purity alumina, sleeve and flange. High-purity alumina provides the required combination of dielectric properties, mechanical strength and chemical stability. The igniter assemblies offer a solution for lighting the plasma charge within the laser through a variety of methods, including using a spark plug device, or a radio-frequency or other high-voltage power supply.

Fully tested and with total materials traceability when required, the igniter assemblies provide a more durable, mechanically stronger solution than ceramic-to-glass assemblies. Additionally, ceramic-to-metal seals maintain hermeticity in a variety of harsh conditions, such as temperature extremes of up to 1000 °C, and corrosive, high-pressure and high-vacuum environments. They employ brazing to join the ceramic and metal igniter assembly components, which produces a strong bond and an excellent seal.
