Our Waveguide Products
Rigid Waveguide Range: We offer a comprehensive line of rigid waveguide products, available in sizes ranging from WR19 to WR2300. Catering to diverse requirements, our products encompass standard and custom waveguide sizes to meet your application’s needs. One of the key challenges in military applications is the need for waveguide components that can withstand extreme conditions, including high temperatures, intense vibrations, and harsh environmental factors. Space Machine addresses these challenges by offering heavy wall, thin wall, and double ridge custom assemblies. Our heavy wall waveguides are particularly suited for high peak power applications, providing enhanced performance to avoid arcing while transmitting a signal. In the context of waveguides, there are three types of gasses that can be used during testing or while the system is running: 1- Compressed Air: Dehumidified air is the most common choice for pressurizing systems, especially when the system operates under standard atmospheric conditions. 2- Nitrogen: Nitrogen is often used when an inert atmosphere is required. It is chemically inert and non-reactive, making it suitable for applications where oxidation or chemical reactions need to be minimized. 3- Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6): SF6 is a stable, non-toxic gas with excellent insulating properties. It is commonly used in high-voltage electrical equipment and switchgear. It is also used for some waveguide applications but not a common choice.
Understanding the unique demands of each project, we provide customized waveguide solutions. Whether you require heavy wall waveguides for enhanced durability or thin wall designs for specific applications, our team can design and manufacture waveguides to your exact specifications.
Our flight waveguides are engineered for aerospace applications, offering unparalleled reliability and performance under extreme conditions.
