Electronics & Telecoms

Modern electronic technologies require security and protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). Manufacturers of products creating EMI and RFI need to comply with the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2014/30/EU.

With over 60 years expertise in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) shielding, we design, develop and manufacture products that meet the suppression needs of numerous organisations across the electronics, aerospace, military, commercial, telecommunications, medical, test equipment and enclosure industries.

We offer a wide range of high resilience knitted mesh EMC shielding products and will use our extensive manufacturing and product testing capabilities to rapidly prototype the products and solutions your innovations and processes require.

Knitex® Shielding Tapes

Our Knitex® Shielding Tapes offer ultimate protection against microwave, RFI & EMI interference (Radio Frequency Interference & Electro-Magnetic Interference).

Typically used within electrical and electronic cable assemblies, cable jointings, grounding, static discharge and within connecter assemblies.

  • Available in a range of materials to suit requirements
  • Can be supplied with a crimp for greater thickness
  • Available in widths from 6mm – 200mm wide

Knitex® All-Metal Compressed Gaskets

Our Knitex® All-Metal Compressed Gaskets shield applications in microwave ovens, CCTV, wave-guides, connectors and shaft seals from EMI.

Due to their all-metal construction, they are extremely efficient heat conductors and are resilient to high temperatures and shock absorption, rendering them suitable in even the most severe environmental conditions.

  • Available in a range of materials to suit requirements
  • Can be supplied as a ring, rectangle or other special shapes
  • Available in a range of sizes and densities

Knitex® Mesh Over Elastomer Core Gaskets

Our Knitex® Mesh Over Elastomer Core Gaskets are used extensively on electronic enclosures where there is a seam unevenness and low closure forces are required.

A single cover of knitted mesh is sufficient where only a moderate degree of shielding effectiveness is required – a double cover is recommended for higher levels of attenuation.

  • Available in a range of materials to suit requirements
  • Supplied with a Neoprene Sponge, Silicone Sponge, Silicone Tube or EPDM

Knitted Mesh in Electronics & Telecoms

  • Available in many different formats and profiles including, round, rectangular, ‘P’ section and double core with fin
  • Suitable for groove mounting, glueing, riveting, spot welding and soldering
  • Will operate at extremely high temperatures
  • Manufactured in a wide range of metals
  • Constructed from knitted wire mesh with numerous interlocked loops for high resilience
  • Available in metal and elastomer combinations for weather, environmental or pressure sealing

 

Telecoms

A large number of today’s telecommunication methods require protection against radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Our knitted wire mesh is used extensively in many different formats to protect all types of telecommunications, including, phone and computer networks, satellite systems, TV and radio, etc.

Microwave

Our knitted mesh shielding gaskets are used on a diverse range of equipment ranging from microwave oven components to cabinets and enclosures for electronic equipment.

Satellite Dish

Today's increasingly sensitive electronic control technologies can require shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI).
At the same time, manufacturers of products creating EMI and radio interference need to comply with the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) directive.

PDQ Machine

Our specially developed insulated wire mesh is used as a security envelope to encase electronic devices that process secure data. Please contact us for more information.

Cable Jointings

Applied like a bandage for EMC integrity, grounding and static discharge around cable joints & connections, our knitted mesh tape is a flexible, light-weight but strong alternative to other more fragile tapes.
KnitMesh Technologies supply EMC shielding tape as a Pan Mesh approved manufacturer for the Eurofighter project.
