Ball plungers have long provided a reliable solution for precise positioning, locking, indexing and detent applications. However, the introduction of a ceramic ball expands possible application opportunities in extreme environments across many industries, such as marine, medical, scientific research and electronics. Our innovative solution, the ceramic ball plunger, was recently featured in Thomas Insights.

Ceramic material is non-magnetic and features other unique properties such as thermal insulation and lower frictional resistance, which are not found in standard 440c stainless steel ball plungers.

Our ceramic ball plungers offer:

  • Outstanding durability
  • Enhanced corrosion resistance
  • Excellent electrical insulation
  • Improved temperature tolerance
  • Easy recyclability
  • Cleanroom compatibility
  • Lower weight
