The production of ceramic pallets composed of Al2O3-Nb2O5-LiF is a process involving many steps and the time to have the final product, this procedure can be for more than two days. Thereby, the present research aims to reduce this production using two different mills with two different sintering temperatures, 1400°C and 1300°C. The results obtained in the test were submitted to ANOVA to confirm with certainty if there was difference between the production of the ceramics. The samples were submitted to SEM and EDS to analyze the morphology and behavior the chemical elements after the sintering process. It has been noted that some elements have a preference to be located in the contours of the particles. From the results obtained it can be affirmed with confidence that the grinding process and the sintering temperature have a direct influence on the morphology of the samples, the porosity and the densification.
