Vacuum Tubes

The inside of a high voltage vacuum tube is a hostile environment and machined parts require special handling in order to survive this application. Parts must be made to exacting tolerances, be free of burrs and blemishes and have highly polished and blended surfaces to prevent electrical arcing. JACO understands that a discrepant part can cause field leakage or tube breakdown rendering a finished tube worthless. Our business has significant expertise in supplying X-rage and microwave tube manufacturers both internal tube parts and external packaging parts. We are accustomed to using materials such as OFE copper, stainless steel, kovar, monel, inconel and hastelloy, as well as chlorine- and sulfur-free cutting fluids and aluminum oxide abrasives.
