Halberd Bastion leverages its exceptional relationship with world leading antenna manufacturers to supply our clients with antennas that provide supreme performance while remaining cost effective.
Antenna models that are offered under this arrangement are existing products that have been developed by Halberd Bastion and are not subject to an exclusive agreement or a Custom Designed Antenna that has been commissioned by a client for their particular application.
OEM / ODM Antenna Manufacturing
Manufacturing facilities include over 10 workshops, 14 antenna production lines and 8 component production lines. The substantial microwave branch is equipped with advanced machinery such as metal spinning and forming machines, hydraulic presses and CNC machines. The combined production capacity of antennas and components stands at over 11 million units/year.
Antenna manufacturing is conducted in compliance with our Quality Management System and utilises sophisticated equipment to ensure that the high standards are continuously being met. Some of the equipment deployed in the production lines to maintain the high standards of quality include:
- Electronic Computer-Aided Design (Keysight EEsof EDA)
- Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
- Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
- Automated X-Ray Inspection (AXI)
- In-Circuit Test (ICT)
All products manufactured adhere to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) that limits the amount of hazardous materials used during the manufacturing of electronic equipment. This protects people, the environment and ensures compliance with European importation restrictions.
Amplifying Possibilities for Clients
Having antennas manufactured on an OEM basis grants our clients control over various aspects of the finished product. One example is aesthetics which becomes quite important in the case of CPE antennas, clients often feel it preferable to have their products branded in a specific way which is understandable considering that it is a product often installed in highly prominent positions. Antenna radomes can be moulded with tactile friendly materials and into appealing form factors, associated bracketry/stands can be customised and the client’s branding displayed. From an engineering perspective, other adaptable aspects include integrating different connectors or cable tails, improving environmental survivability, packaging, etc.
Longstanding Professional Relationships
Halberd Bastion has invested heavily into building professional relationships with our manufacturing partners and the firm is dedicated to preserving and growing these relationships. There are several key advantages attained though our long term working relationships and these benefits are conferred to our clients. Halberd Bastion’s rapport and good standing leads to reduced variation fees, increasingly flexible payment arrangements and better delivery terms.
