L18 - Introduction to Everyday Ceramic Calculations

Wednesday 9 November 2022

Expanding on the knowledge learnt from our other ceramic whitewares training modules, this module will focus on the fundamental ceramic calculations that underpin both body and glaze preparation.

The module is interactive and will teach attendees the traditional basics of calculating glaze and body formulations that can be applied in everyday factory situations using our combined training approach of learning and practical exercises.

The learning will enable attendees to understand the relationships between raw materials, glazes and bodies applicable in any ceramic manufacturing business or in the raw materials/supplier environment.

Learning outcomes from the training include:

  • Understand the concepts underpinning basic ceramics calculations
  • Identify what information is essential before starting the calculations
  • Applying the correct formulae
  • Practical exercises to understand the importance of ceramic calculations and how they can be utilized in the working environment.

Recommended for ceramics based: process leaders, production and manufacturing operatives, material scientists, process engineers, R&D, quality and laboratory technicians, technical teams – anyone involved with materials processing and handling.

A basic understanding of maths is required.
