Kyocera's ceramic heater is widely used in industrial and automotive applications. Taking advantage of our unique ceramic lamination technology and more than 30 years of experience, Kyocera's heater can deliver robust quality with outstanding performance. The highly reliable ceramic heaters allow customers to minimize the size of the heater while maintaining maximum wattage to support a rapid heating rate. Kyocera works with each customer to provide open-source tools or customized designs to meet your unique performance needs.
Kyocera's ceramic heater has a structure in which a heating element is built into the base ceramic material and is integrated by simultaneous sintering. This structure can completely shut out the outside air, and by embedding multiple circuits, it can also be equipped with an output switching function and a temperature sensor function.

Semiconductor Flip-chip bonder
Kyocera SN heaters are used in flip-chip bonder heater plates. The rapid heating performance contributes to improved tact time and more accurate chip mounting.
Ecology / Energy Gas appliances
SN heaters are used as the igniter in all gas appliances, including residential gas furnaces, gas boiler, etc. Kyocera’s SN heater achieves quick and stable ignition because of its rapid heating performance, and high reliability contributes to long life and savings on maintenance for end-users. Also, the SN heater offers noise less ignition in contrast to a spark plug.
Mobility Glow plug
Glow plugs are used for cold-start assistance for diesel engines. They contribute to exhaust gas purification at the engine starting phase due to the fast heating speed of Kyocera’s SN heater and high reliability in harsh environments.
