Your Design Partner for Custom Solenoids and Valves

Unlike standard, off-the-shelf components, TLX solenoids are tailored to your application. Functionality, materials and design are carefully balanced to meet your objectives, including:

Response Times
Whether slow or ultra-fast, TLX optimizes design geometry and magnetic field shaping to achieve your required response time.
Targeted Force and Stroke
Careful design of internal components allows shaping of the force curve to closely match your desired load force and stroke requirement.
Size Constraints
A variety of design techniques are utilized to maximize magnetic force while reducing size (up to 25% smaller than competing designs).
Limiting Power Consumption
Designing with magnetic latching or peak & hold operation in the solenoid or valve minimizes overall power consumption.
Designed to operate with continuous, intermittent, latching or proportional functionality. Optional integration of smart device feedback capabilities.
Environmental Considerations
Harsh environments including temperature, pressure, and hazardous locations. Custom solenoids and valves designed to meet your requirements for chemical compatibility and contamination resistance.

During your partnership with TLX, you will have direct access to our design and engineering teams.

Our experts will guide you from concept through production, working as an extension of your team to develop solutions and ensure that you meet your project goals.
