Manufacturing with Torlon
Manufacturing parts with Torlon can be accomplished three ways:
- Stock shapes for machining prototypes
- Machining parts
- Injection-molding parts
Allegheny regards all three as core competencies and actively supports volumes from a single prototype piece up to millions of production pieces annually. We manufacture high volume parts that are all injection-molded, and we also manufacture parts that are more complex and require machining after being molded. We have the largest Torlon-part manufacturing infrastructure in North America, along with the decades of employee expertise required to ensure that your part will be in excellent hands.
Torlon is technically a thermoset polymer, which are not commonly injection-molded. This means that every step of the manufacturing process is an exact science. Torlon parts that have been injection-molded require an extended post-curing process, for example. Click on one of the Torlon parts below to read a case study and learn more.
