Adamant Namiki offers ceramic (alumina, reinforced alumina, zirconia) and carbide nozzles and needles, and single crystal ruby nozzles and needles. Adamant Namiki is the only manufacturer of single crystal ruby nozzles.
HIP-processed ceramic nozzles and needles
Single crystal ruby nozzles and needles
- Low resistance due to single crystal
- Internal surface mirror polishing makes the flow of coating solution smooth and less likely to clog
- Diameter of the opening ranges from φ30 μm down to φ15 μm (for semiconductive fine hole nozzle)
- Even and stable application, high reliability, and long service life
All nozzles are compatible with double threaded screw and luer lock.
Nozzles can be made according to request
- Can make fine holes 20 microns
- Micron-level control of fine hole variation
- Choice of material
(Toughened alumina, zirconia, ruby, sapphire, cemented carbide, SUS, Vespel, etc.)
- We can accommodate requests for various quantities, starting from small lots
- Ceramic is densified by HIP
- Smooth hole surface, roughness Ra 0.010 or less
Contributing to productivity improvement with long life nozzles and needles
Liquid injection nozzle
Dispenser nozzles and liquid injection nozzles often have problems with liquid crawl up when discharging low viscosity liquids.
Adamant Namiki proposes nozzle shapes, materials, and surface specifications that can solve such problems.
We also design ceramic-based specialty nozzles, such as 2- and 3-hole nozzles, or 12-hole nozzle plate assemblies.
We handle high-precision ceramic parts such as pick-up nozzles, pick-up collets and work piece positioning parts, which are all key parts for achieving stable production of semiconductors, industrial equipment, medical devices and other manufacturing equipment.
Adamant Namiki uses a wide variety of materials such as toughened alumina, zirconia, alumina silicon nitride, aluminum nitride, sapphire, ruby, and cemented carbide to meet customer needs.

Ruby can be seen through the hole
Problem solving of dispenser nozzles
Control of application amount
Application accuracy can be improved by devising the liquid flow path in the nozzle and the pressure control according to the purpose.
The fluid passage of the ceramic nozzle has a very smooth surface, which can reduce the loss of discharge pressure.
Interference in precision application
In cases where a minute coating is being applied to a very narrow area, the workpiece and precision nozzle may come in contact.
At Adamant Namiki, we sharpen the tip of the nozzle as much as possible for a precise application that doesn’t leave residual material on the tip.
Problem Solving of Pick-up Collet (Nozzle)
Proposal of a nozzle that suits the work
We can design a pick-up surface (pick-up collet) suited for your work.
We can propose the design of a collet tip shape according to a wide variety of workpieces, starting from the selection of materials.
Long service life thanks to highly wear-resistant material
To address the problem of tip wear of the pick-up collet, wear-resistant hard materials such as single crystal ruby, reinforced alumina, and zirconia are used to improve service life.
With less wear on the tip, workpiece position accuracy can also be maintained for a long period of time, contributing to overall productivity improvement.
Precision processing significantly improves the productivity of liquid crystal panels through control and repeatability of minute application amounts.
Our long-life nozzles are adopted as a liquid material discharge device requiring highly accurate coating amount control. Particularly, with the expansion of panel size, further improvements in accuracy are required, surface abrasion technology of the nozzle tip and precision machining of the inner and outer diameters are utilized, enabling stable and accurate control of coating amount, single crystal ruby Nozzles are useful in the field. In the manufacturing process of LCD panels for flat-screen TVs and PCs, the adhesive is applied to a wide range of locations with a precision nozzle and needle. The failure of a single coating makes the whole unusable, so application control directly affects production yield. Adamant Namiki contributes to the improvement of application accuracy through precise processing of nozzle shape, hole diameter size, inner diameter shape, and surface roughness based on customer's request.
