Double Ridge Flex-Twist Waveguide Core
Double ridge waveguide core is manufactured by subjecting conventional rectangular flex twist waveguide core to a secondary pressing operation to create the characteristic ‘figure 8’ cross section.
Rectangular Flex-Twist Waveguide Core
Flex / twist waveguide core starts life as spool of 0.1mm thick silver plated brass strip. The strip is then precision rolled into a three dimensional profile before being helically wound around a rotating mandrel to form a continuous rectangular tube with uniform cross section and internal silver plating to minimize loss.
Rectangular Seamless Waveguide Core
Seamless flexible waveguide is manufactured from a thin-walled brass tube which is mechanically manipulated into a corrugated form to produce a seamless flexible waveguide. The seamless construction generally allows for greater power & pressure handling although, due to the nature of the construction process, length is limited to 1 meter. Seamless core is offered un-plated as standard with the option of internal silver plating if required.
