Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication of an Antenna Element Switch Array

At EMF, Inc. we specialize in the design and fabrication of machined and fabricated metal components for the defense and aerospace industries. The assembly highlighted here is an antenna element switch array used in the communication industry. The array is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum and measures 19.75" in length, 16.5" in width, and approximately 6" in height. True position tolerances were held to ±0.014" and surface profile tolerances were held to ±0.015" as required, in accordance with AMSE Y14.5 standards.

After fabrication, pins and threaded inserts were installed to customer specifications. The array was treated with a chemical conversion coating (chem-film) and chemical agent resistant coating (CARC) paint for maximum protection during use. We are capable of working with all Mil-Spec, NASA, and customer-specific standards as needed and can perform inspection and testing backed by our AS9100C certification.
