DYNALLOY, Inc. is a manufacturer of a specific class of NiTi based shape memory alloys, the most common alloy under the trade name FLEXINOL®, or Muscle Wires®, to be used as the moving component of a specialty actuator. The wire is heated well above room temperature to perform work by contracting 2% to 5% of its length. This heating is often performed with electricity, using the materials' own internal resistance. This specialty is DYNALLOY, Inc.'s core business.
DYNALLOY, Inc. guides organizations to successful use of SMAs in their products, by using state-of-the-art materials, analytical tools and techniques. This subsequently reduces the years of R&D commonly encountered when launching a new project with this technology.
DYNALLOY, Inc. also specializes in helping its customers terminate the SMAs by using standard crimping techniques to develop fully automated attaching solutions.
The company is privately held, located in southern California, and has been in business 30 years.
