Waveguides

Metal Associates is an exclusive waveguide distributor for copper and bronze manufacturers in the USA. We are also an exclusive waveguide tube distributor for an aluminum manufacturing mill that is located in the UK.

Waveguides can be used to guide any particular type of wave such as sound waves, electromagnetic waves or radio waves. Waveguides are not new, but we now understand more about how they work so that they can be manufactured for many different uses. Today, waveguide technology is used in everything from optic fibres to microwaves to radars.

Particular waveguides are purchased to suit the type of wave characteristic in order to efficiently control the waves.

Waveguides can be manufactured from dielectric or conductive materials depending on the wave frequency. In some situations, waveguides are used to transfer communication signals, as well as power. There are a number of ways Metal Associates can create your waveguide solutions. We’ll work with you to determine exactly which machining process is best for your application.

Metal Associates also offers Rigid Waveguide Tubes including rectangular, circular and double ridge waveguides. Our square waveguides can be manufactured in the range from Q41 to Q130. We also supply non-standard types as listed below in a variety of standard materials such as Copper, Bronze, Brass, Aluminum, Nickel Iron, and more.* (see * on webpage)

Whatever the application, let Metal Associates be your next waveguide suppliers.
