Manufacturing Capabilities

State-of-the-Art Carbon Line Processing Facility

Carbon Line Facility

Up to 20,000 sq. ft. of dipped and sprayed carbon foam products can be produced each week at our state-of-the-art facility in Randolph, MA. Benefits include consistent electrical properties, cost effectiveness based on low rejection rates, and reduced need for inventorying finished goods.

Mold-In-Place Technology

Mold In Place Technology

Users of ECCOSORB® MIP Mold-in-Place technology are now benefiting from the economies and increased throughput of new state of the art auto dispensing equipment designed to meet the increasing demand for liquid cast microwave absorbing materials. MIP improves reliability and oftentimes reduces overall fabrication costs for the user of microwave absorbing materials.

Water Jet Cutting

Emerson & Cuming Microwave Products has introduced water-jet cutting technology at their Randolph, MA manufacturing facility to help reduce the turnaround time on prototypes parts. The process of water jet cutting uses a very fine, high pressure beam of water to precisely cut through a wide variety of materials. Common tolerances of +/- .005" to +/-.010" are possible but depends on the shape, size, thickness and material being cut. With water jet cut parts there is no tooling that must be purchased as with a die and generally only a one time setup fee is incurred.


Molded Parts

Emerson & Cuming Microwave Products has developed castable absorber and dielectric technology as a way to reduce part cost for the customer over traditional machining methods. Generally, cast parts can be significantly less expensive and have shorter lead-times to produce. Process development improvements have produced excellent dimensional tolerances. Where high volume production and low cost is a mandatory requirement, Emerson & Cuming Microwave Products also offers thermoplastic based absorber and dielectric systems that are amenable to injection molding techniques.

Die Cutting

Die Cut Parts

Die cutting is a process of cutting soft material into a desired shape and size with a steel rule die. The die is placed into a press in such a way that the sharp edges of the die penetrate through the material cutting it out of a larger sheet into the shape made with the steel rule. Die cutting is quick and inexpensive requiring a one time tooling charge for the die to be made. Common tolerances of +/- .010" to +/-.020" are seen but depends on the shape, size, thickness and material being cut.

Kiss Cutting

Kiss Cutting

Kiss cutting delivers precision cuts through a top layer of material (absorber and adhesive) without cutting the bottom release liner, such as a sheet of stickers. This is commonly used when cutting several different parts and the customer wishes to keep all of the parts together on one sheet or as a set.

Custom Fabrications

Custom Fabrication

Emerson & Cuming Microwave Products has produced a wide variety of custom fabrications including Naval radar blankets, radiation shields for the nosecones of aircraft and other specialized parts requiring the development of new materials.
