||Latrobe, PA — Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) has expanded its extrusion capabilities with the installation of a new extruder that will facilitate the production of larger ceramic parts ideal for use in industrial applications such as thermocouples, thermostats, fuses, igniters, and heaters. The new extruder allows rods with an outside diameter (OD) of up to 1.5-in. (38mm) and tubes with outside diameters up to 2.5-in. (63mm) to be manufactured. MTC offers a number of custom material formulations and blends that are particularly well suited for industrial heating applications, including alumina, steatite, magnesium oxide, and cordierite. These materials offer excellent electric insulation and mechanical and thermal properties. MTC Latrobe is already well known for supplying precision micro parts (from 0.019-in. (0.48mm) OD rods and from 0.050-in. (1.27mm) OD tubes) for aerospace, electronics and medical devices.
In addition to the new extruding capabilities, the MTC Latrobe site has automated high-volume glazing capabilities, for applying coatings on components that require wipe clean surfaces.
