Custom Magnetic Shielding
Product Announcement from MuShield Company, Inc. (The)
There is a story behind every shielding application. MuShield's favorite is working with the scientists at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. Contracted by NASA to design and build atomic clocks for space exploration, the people at SAO have the opportunity to test Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Their role has been to provide them with some carefully constructed shields that are used to maintain the precision of the atomic clocks. Working with minds like this is an honor, as is every opportunity to create a shield design that works.
MuShield's expertise lies in understanding the science of magnetic shielding and providing design and fabrication solutions for a wide range of applications. Typical sources of interference include permanent magnets, transformers, motors, solenoids, cables, and the Earth's magnetic field.
In operation, a magnetic shield both absorbs and diverts magnetic flux by providing a path around the sensitive area. In addition, shielding is used to contain the magnetic field generated by a device.
MuShield is fortunate to have on its staff several design engineers with extensive experience in the field of magnetic shielding. In many cases two design minds are better than one, and they work as a team to develop an end product that works.
MuShield is a small company that tackles big problems. Their flexibility and the talent mix of their engineers enables us to build, test, and ship prototypes within reasonable time frames.
MuShield works closely with customer design engineers to create a viable shield. They then build according to agreed upon specifications, and test for performance. Simple.
Should you have an existing shield design, MuShield will provide cost effective production parts. Along with the traditional machining capabilities such as metal forming, spinning, and welding, MuShield has talented machine operators specializing in CAM, precision laser work, and tool making. They are fully equipped for production runs; big and small.
