Application: Military Satellite Microwave Attenuator
Problem: Existing customer was presented with a large, new opportunity that required a short run of custom electrical contacts be designed, produced, and tested in a very short time period.
The MWI Solution:
- Dedicated engineering, production, and quality resources to the task
- Supported the customer in re-engineering an existing contact to fit the new application
- Machined the new contact from Beryllium Copper stock
- Heat treated and gold plated the components to ensure the desired performance
- Delivered the finished parts for product testing within three weeks
The customer was able to successfully test their product design and were awarded the contract for production quantities. Our RAF location used the experience to develop an internal production framework, dubbed Quick Turn, to provide custom short run turned contacts within three weeks of receiving an order.
