Description - Tape Casting by Richard E. Mistler
Since the inception of the Modern Ceramics Era, usually defined as during or slightly following World War II, there have been several advances in ceramic processing technology. One of the newest and most prolific of these advances has been the development and implementation of tape casting as a manufacturing process for the production of thin sheets of just about any material that can be produced as a powder. In today's arena, this includes products ranging from metallic electrodes to organic lithium polymer battery components to the more standard ceramic substrate materials. More and more electronic ceramic products are being fabricated through tape casting technology because of increased demand for smaller size, more complex circuitry, reduced weight, greater reliability, and lower costs. Mistler and Twiname, the world's leading experts in this field, present the information in two sections: the first deals with the practical, hands-on understanding of individual areas of tape casting, and the second targets the understanding of the overall system. Readers can quickly address current problems with tried-and-true fixes and their relation to the overall process.
The book handles the problem diagnosis separately from the standard production of quick-fixes. Also included is a unique section on model formulations that allows you to begin looking at tape casting for your specific applications. It appears that the only limit to the utility of tape casting is the imagination of the materials engineer! Technicians, engineers, designers, researchers, managers, students, and professors of ceramics and materials will benefit enormously from this important new reference work.
