MTC Latrobe Installs New Extruder for Production of Large Ceramic Parts

Morgan Advanced Materials (MTC) announces that its Latrobe, PA site 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.

New Extruder

The new extruder allows rods with an outside diameter (OD) of up to 1.5 inchesand tubes with outside diameters up to 2.5 inchesto bemanufactured.

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. MTCLatrobe is already well known for supplying precision micro parts (from 0.019” OD rods and from 0.050” OD tubes) for aerospace, electronics and medical devices,and these new capabilities will allow the company’s application engineers to apply their considerable materials knowledge and expertise to the high temperature requirements of applications in industrial heating and ignition systems.

In addition to the new extruding capabilities, the MTC Latrobe sitehasautomated high-volume glazing capabilities, ideal for applying coatingson components that require wipe clean surfaces.
