Teledyne Defence (TD) has been manufacturing in the Shipley, UK area for over 30 years, originally producing Filters & Filter assemblies and now integrating these filters into higher level systems. With this growth has come the need for more complex manufacturing facilities to support all processes from bare die handling to mechanical integration.

Some of the current manufacturing disciplines include:

  • PCB and softboard hand soldering assembly
  • Mechanical and cable harness assembly
  • Hermetic sealing, including seam & laser welding incorporating fine / gross leak testing
  • Alignment and Test including Automated Test
