A window on advanced production

A new manufacturing cell has been established by Parker Hannifin company, Chomerics Europe, at its UK facility. The specialist cell supports the manufacture of shielded cast windows, which are required to provide EMI protection and ensure compliance with EMC regulations in a range of equipment in sectors such as military, aerospace, instrumentation and control and life sciences.

Chomerics’ cast windows manufactured in the new cell utilise proprietary processes to provide an application specific combination of shielding effectiveness, optical transmission and mechanical and environmental performance.

General manager, Parker Chomerics Division Europe, Billy Sheedy, said: “With an increasing demand for portability and use in uncontrolled environments, along with more stringent EMC regulations, we are seeing greater demand for our shielded optical products. Establishing a dedicated cell for cast windows will enable us to further advance the quality of our products for this market.”
