RF Solutions | Capabilities

Ducommun has been designing and manufacturing electro-mechanical switch products for over 55 years. From our long heritage, we have developed high-end capabilities to support rapid design, development, and introduction of new products. Our processes are designed to meet the requirements for military and aerospace manufacturing, and our systems are certified to AS9100 to ensure consistent quality.

Engineering Expertise

The team can rapidly design your new product and bring it into manufacturing. When starting a new product development, we can build off one of our hundreds of existing topologies or start fresh to design to your exact requirements. Our experts use 3D finite element model (FEM) electromagnetics software to optimize designs for low size, weight, and power consumption when required for the application.

Our manufacturing processing engineering team shortens lead times and minimizes waste through the value stream by optimizing manufacturing process design for our products. Our test automation team automates data capture for functional tests to ensure reliable performance across environmental conditions. Together, these teams ensure that you receive quality product on a short timescale.

Embedded into our daily actions is a culture of root cause analysis and corrective action. We strive for continuous improvement and look for ways to improve efficiency. We continuously look for ways to better serve your need for responsive, collaborative partnership. We welcome the opportunity to work directly with you on your next big project.
