The grid’s main functions are to ensure uniform distribution of ceramic raw material and to clean the die box’s surface from any swarf, To manufacture the grid variables like the size of the press and its width, the required tiles’ dimension and type are needed.

Even though grids vary in shape, size and design but they consist of the following main components:

Stainless steel: stainless steel has properties that fit these applications such as corrosion and rust resistance.

Polyurethane: plays the role of cleaning the die box’s surface, this material was chosen as it reduces the rate of corrosion to the surface which is the most important and costly part of the die, it can be easily replaced when damaged.
