We are Materials Science and Manufacturing Innovators.
Precision Manufacturing For High Performance
Ultra-narrowband interference filters (as narrow as ~0.1nm linewidth) for LIDAR imaging are made by depositing alternating layers of materials with contrasting refractive indices onto a substrate. Layers are typically ¼ wavelength thick. Our optical filters are also used in non-linear optical systems with high-intensity femtosecond pulse lasers.
Reliability in Extreme Environments
We went to Mars! Well, our products did. The Mars Rover traveled 54 million miles through space to explore a rocky, hostile planet. The Rover’s robotic arm drill spindle incorporates our metal-PTFE bearing segments – which are self-lubricating and are capable of functioning from -328°F (-200°C) to +536°F (+280°C). In 2021, we went to the moon onboard NASA’s SLS rocket, where we provided seals for the liquid hydrogen and oxygen propellant systems.
Delivering Under Pressure
An extensive, two-year testing phase preceded the requirements definition and design of a sealing system for protecting vital electronics in a subsea environment. Our seal consists of a close-wound helical spring core and ductile outer jacket for maximum sealing integrity.
Quality Without Compromise
When it comes to vaccines and gene therapies, the introduction of contaminants at any point in the production process can have disastrous consequences. Our sterile fluid transfer solutions for critical environments makes sure this doesn’t happen.
Garlock for Wireless Communications
Garlock has formulated and processed filled PTFE as sheets and shapes for more than 50 years. As experts in PTFE and polymers, we are continually exploring new applications for our product and process expertise. We take pride in engineering materials and developing innovative processing techniques in order to deliver high-quality, high-performance products to meet exacting requirements.Learn More About Garlock
