Customized antennas

This term synthesizes the core business of the company, i.e. the research and development of a standardized method to manufacture antennas with particular electrical and mechanical specifications to suit any customer’s request. The acquired experience in this specific field has allowed us to define a fast and effective design procedure by which we can provide innovative products, in a quick and cost effective way, even for all those applications where a tailored solution seems to be impracticable.

The “AntennaCustomizer” development activity is carried out through six steps, plus a possible production phase in the case that our Customer will require this further service from us.

Step 1

Customer’s specifications analysis

This first phase of dialogue with the customer, absolutely not binding, aims to put in evidence the specific needs in order to identify the proper solution. Depending on the particular application, we define the electrical and mechanical specifications of the antenna to be developed, trying to give at each of them the correct weight in relation to project complexity.

Step 2

ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL DEVELOPMENT

The electrical and mechanical design of the new antenna is accomplished using both an electromagnetic simulation tool and CAD software. In the case that some preliminary laboratory tests are needed for a direct validation of design choices, all the measurements can be easily carried out inside our facility to reduce development time and cost to get an optimal result.

Step 3

FIRST PROTOTYPING AND CHARACTERIZATION

In our mechanical workshop we can carry out the assembly of the first prototype, formerly calculated and designed. Even at this early stage it takes into account its engineering, so we can supply to the customer a production ready antenna. We also accomplish all the experimental verifications to optimize the overall performance of the product.

Step 4

PRE SERIES PROTOTYPES ASSEMBLY

Each development activity cannot go further without the realization of one or more fully functional pre production prototypes, manufactured and assembled inside our facility. If some specific parts are needed, we can get them quickly from a network of specialist suppliers, under our total control. The expericence allows us to reduce time and costs for pre series accomplishment.

Step 5

PROTOTYPE CHARACTERIZATION

Each prototype needs to be measured in order to verify its real correspondence with the formerly assessed specifications. Inside our facility, our electromagnetic measurements laboratory is equipped with an anechoic chamber, a fully automated data acquisition system and all the instruments to carry out a complete and accurate characterization of the new product.

Step 6

DELIVERY

One or more working prototypes are delivered to the customer together with one or more technical reports containing the results of all the characterization measurements. In the event that the client company will support the subsequent production by its own, all the required technical documentation is released too.

...and...

PRODUCTION

A subsequent production activity can be eventually carried out inside the company, in accordance with the delivery time needed by the client. If over time it becomes necessary any changes to the product, in this way it becomes straightforward to accomplish every improvement to maximize the useful life cycle of the project.
