DYNALLOY, Inc. is a privately held manufacturer of a specific class of NiTi based shape memory alloys, the most common alloys under the trade name FLEXINOL®, and 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, replacing or performing tasks not suited to small electromechanical actuators. 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.
