Spectrum Adds Extrusion Process for Manufacturing Ceramic Tubular Capacitors
FAIRVIEW, Pa.--By adding an extrusion process to its current methods of manufacturing ceramic tubular capacitors, Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products has enhanced its design flexibility and ability to offer custom products. Spectrum recently reported that it is capable of producing sizes of up to 1 inch in length, as well as diameters of 1/2 inch and larger, with the new process. The company's extruded ceramic tubular capacitors are suited for use in applications such as EMI filtering for multi-pin connectors, RFI suppression, and circuit protection.
All Spectrum ceramics are produced "100% in-house" in the company's established MIL-STD-790 ceramics facility, located in State College, Pa., the company said. Vertical integration reportedly enables Spectrum to provide customers with "application-specific, high performance solutions" in short lead times. Pricing of extruded ceramic tubular capacitors begins at $0.20, the company says, and is dependent upon quantity and configuration.
Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products (www.specemc.com) produces coaxial filters and interconnects; advanced ceramics; specialty connectors; harnessing and power filters; and film modules. The company is a Spectrum Control business, which is part of API Technologies Corporation (www.apitechnologies.com). Through its subsidiaries, API Technologies designs, develops, and manufactures systems, subsystems, RF, and secure communications products for technically demanding defense, aerospace, and commercial applications.
