Magnetrons and Accessories

We are the established market leader for the magnetrons used in a wide range of medical, security and industrial applications.

Our engineers have designed and manufactured magnetrons and their associated parts for more than 70 years. We are the preferred partner of choice for original equipment manufacturers across the world, all of whom demand the highest standards of quality, accuracy and reliability.

In addition to supplying magnetrons, our engineers also work closely with clients on component design and subsystem integration, thereby speeding up product development and guaranteeing seamless, long-lasting performance.

The Technology

All our magnetrons are engineered to guarantee precision, accuracy and reliability.

The operational life of a well-designed magnetron is ultimately dependent upon the cathode. We use a wide range of cathode technologies to achieve optimum efficiency and performance and increase their lifespan.

Our decades of experience ensure we maintain the strictest control over the design, materials and the manufacturing process.

We also provide all our clients with the long-term technical support and aftercare they need to ensure their systems continue to perform to the very highest standards for many years.

 

Applications and Products
Medical
Improving and saving lives

Every 0.25 seconds a patient is treated for cancer using our technology.

Our magnetrons power the linear accelerators to drive radiotherapy systems, producing the high-energy x-rays that destroy cancer cells.

We work with all the leading radiotherapy system manufacturers to develop state-of-the-art devices, from design and R&D to manufacture and installation.

We also provide in-depth training and ongoing technical support to hospital engineers and medical professionals, enabling them to deliver faster and more accurate cancer treatment to patients every day of the year.

Commercial Radar
Consistent, reliable protection

Our magnetrons provide the power for the radars used across a wide variety of marine, airborne and coastal surveillance applications.

Marine radars are used by ships for navigation, collision avoidance and weather monitoring, and by fisherman to find flocks of birds and shoals of fish. Airborne radars are relied upon by pilots to track and monitor weather patterns and help them fly safely and confidently.

Coastal surveillance radars let law enforcement agencies monitor threats from the sea and the air, as well as help ships arrive safely to shore. They are also used on wind farms to detect potential dangers from birds and low-flying aircraft, activating high-intensity lights to keep them away from the area.

Transport and Security
Protecting our borders

Every day, our magnetrons help protect people, infrastructure and borders from a wide range of threats and illegal activities.

They form the core of the linear accelerators used in gantry, mobile and portable cargo scanning systems around the world. The high-energy x-ray imaging enables authorities to safely and accurately detect weapons, stowaways, contraband and other prohibited items.

The technology is widely used at seaports, border crossings and other high-volume ports of entry, or any location where reliable images, efficient processing and the ability to quickly interpret data is vital.

Industrial

Driving business efficiency and performance

Our magnetrons are used to power an almost endless range of industrial applications.
From food processing, agricultural production and mining to rubber vulcanisation, polymer and plastic recycling and diamond seeding, the technology can be truly transformative.

The magnetrons are also used in high energy x-ray imaging system that are used in the non-destructive testing of civil infrastructure such as buildings and bridges, and potential hazards including high-capacity storage tanks, pressurised containers and pipelines.

The food processing industry also uses x-ray and electron technology to destroy bacteria, sterilise food and improve its quality and safety.

Defence

Protecting our armed forces and citizens 

Our magnetrons power the military radars that are used to protect assets and detect hazards across land, air and sea.

They are specially designed to operate at extremely high frequencies and with very low noise levels to quickly detect small or complex threats at long range. They are also optimised for high pulse repetition frequency and quick start up so that danger can be tracked from the start.

In an environment where it is crucial to be one step ahead, we are continually developing new technologies and systems to ensure our customers maintain their operational advantage.

 

Our high frequency (HF) magnetrons are available from Ka to Ku band.
