At ARC Technologies, Inc. we offer the following types of CNC machining services. Honeycomb machining ARC Technologies, Inc. can machine a wide variety of honeycomb from something as simple as facing sheets to a desired thickness or complex pyramidal shapes. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding. Automotive. The advances in the automotive industry today require components to have more power and energy than ever, and we can get your technology up to speed.


Automotive systems designers encounter unique problems with the development and deployment of high frequency radar systems in vehicles. Chief among these are: Cavity resonances within metal enclosuresCoupling between transmit and receive antennasReflections cause by adjacent metal structure on the vehicleFocus of the antenna pattern Resolution of these problems can be a complex task that may include circuit and antenna layout, enclosure design compromises, range and pattern concessions and placement within the vehicle.

A sensible solution is the selection of high frequency radar absorbing materials suitable for the automotive environment. Material selection is critical to the resolution of radar resonance and interference issues. Focused Beam Testing (Permittivity & Permeability) At ARC Technologies, Inc., we have the unique ability to customize.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding. ARC Technologies blends thermoplastics with fillers to create the solution to your problem.

Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding

ARC Technologies can manufacture thermoplastics to be used in a cast, molded, extruded, or pellet form. In the binder ARC Technologies can compound different fillers, typically: carbon, ferrite or iron particles to achieve the desired absorption or conductivity to solve the problem. By combining a binder that is in the form which meets the product requirements and with the fillers that also meet the electrical and magnetic properties, a complete solution can be met. Why Thermoplastics Are Effective The thermoplastic solution is very effective in solving the key issues of the problem.

Parts can be molded to snap over the IC’s, or extruded to wrap and cover a product or cable, or sold as pellets so the end customer can mold/extrude their own product. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding. ARC offers the most sophisticated, light weight, high strength, structures in the Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) control industry.
