The Morgan Crucible Company plc engages in the design, development and marketing of products made from carbon, ceramic and magnetic materials worldwide. Their products are used in a range of applications from transport and telecommunications to fire protection and medical instruments. The company operates in four divisions that include Carbon, Magnetic, Technical Ceramics, and Insulating Ceramics. CARBON DIVISION Carbon division designs, manufactures and supplies carbon components and systems for industrial rail and traction applications on a global scale. It provides seal faces and bearings for a range of applications, and also produces precision purity specialty graphite products for use in high temperature and corrosive environments. Products and Applications The company’s Industrial and Traction business designs, manufactures and supplies components and systems worldwide. The business offers a range of products – carbon brushes, brush holders and commutators used in DC motors, traction current collectors used on trains, trams and underground train systems, linear and rotary current transfer systems and assemblies used in many applications. The Mechanical Carbon business provides seal faces, bearings, rotors, vanes and other components providing the technical solutions required for a variety of applications. It also supplies armour materials. Specialty Graphite produces and supplies precision purity specialty graphite products for use in a variety of high temperature and corrosive environments. MAGNETIC DIVISION Magnetic division develops, manufactures and markets special purpose magnetic materials and the products derived from them. Its materials, parts, components and systems are used in virtually every field of electronics and electrical engineering from watch manufacturing to aerospace. Products and applications Magnetics comprises three divisions: Materials & Parts, Cores & Components, and Permanent Magnets. Materials & Parts: The main products of its Materials & Parts division include crystalline (soft magnetic and semi hard) and amorphous and nanocrystalline materials. Cores & Components: In its Cores & Components division, the company produces toroidal tape wound cores, inductive components and component assemblies. The main applications include GFCIs, Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) in PCs, as well as its own components production. Permanent Magnets: In its Permanent Magnets division, the company produces rare earth permanent magnets, integrated systems and assemblies. The main application of Neodymium Iron Boron rare earth magnets is within electric motors, such as compact elevator drives and servo motors in machine tool drives. Neodymium Iron Boron magnets are also used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems for hospitals. These systems provide perfect images of bones and soft body parts without the use of X-rays. Samarium Cobalt magnets are used in chemical pumps to safely move hazardous liquids. TECHNICAL CERAMICS DIVISION Technical Ceramics produces ceramic-based components and assemblies. The industries that it supplies include medical, security, aerospace and communications. It operates in the U.S., Europe and China. Technical Ceramics comprises two divisions: Advanced Ceramics and Electro Ceramics. Products and applications Advanced Ceramics: Advanced Ceramics products include ceramic materials, braze alloys and assemblies, which are essential building block products used in the construction of sensing devices that monitor aero engine performance for fuel efficiency and safety. It also supplies blade coatings, braze alloys and repair materials for the manufacture and refurbishment of gas turbine engines. Electro Ceramics: Electro Ceramics develops and manufactures piezoelectric ceramic components, ultrasonic transducers and sensor assemblies, actuators, radio frequency and high voltage capacitors and microwave filters. Its actuators, transducers and sensors provide an electro mechanical interface between electronic systems and the real world. Applications include hard disk drives for computers, sonar systems, medical imaging, ultrasonic scalpels and parking sensors for cars. INSULATING CERAMICS DIVISION Insulating Ceramics provides heat management products for high temperature applications in a variety of end-use industries. It also provides crucibles and related products for the non-ferrous and precious metals foundry market. The company operates in approximately 40 countries Insulating Ceramics comprises two business units: Thermal Ceramics and Crucibles. Products and Applications Insulating Ceramics engages in the production of ceramic and bio-soluble fibres, high temperature insulating refractory bricks, including castables and crucibles, refractory consumables, and furnaces. It also provides products, such as energy efficient furnaces and heated transport ladles complemented by a range of other foundry products employed in metal handling, purification, flow control and temperature measurement. HISTORY The Morgan Crucible Company plc was founded in 1856.
