SPECIALIZED RF WAVEGUIDE
Altair Technologies manufactures custom, “standard” and customer specified wave guide assemblies. We design and build various rectangular and circular waveguide assemblies, including couplers, directional couplers, horns, elbow, adapters, tapers, transformers and straight-sections covering many RF frequency ranges from L-Band & S-Band up to the very high millimeter (mm) wave frequencies.
Most of the wave guides we make are used in vacuum or vacuum (one-side) and pressurized gas (the other side) applications. Most wave guides use stainless steel flanges (SLAC-type, Varian-Type, LIL, Cover, Choke and more) and extruded or machined copper guide as the transmission line. We also design and fabricate Aluminum waveguide assemblies using our vacuum aluminum brazing process.
We have in-house testing capability to ensure our designs meet the desired low insertion loss and high transmitted power requirements (VWSR). Low loss designs can also be silver or gold plated to reduce microwave losses and ensure maximum energy propagation. If you have a requirement for a custom wave guide assembly and need help with its design and fabrication, our engineering team can help with the mechanical CAD work, the voltage or power handling, bandwidth, modes and braze and/or weld designs. In many cases we can fabricate components in-house to ensure quality and expedited delivery.
