Gapwaves in-house developed test equipment will perform testing of radar antennas in a high volume production and is an automated solution for fast and robust testing and quality assurance of antennas. The order has a total value of about 3.5 MSEK and will be delivered during the fourth quarter.
Gapwaves and Frencken Group has since the beginning of 2021 a cooperation agreement for high volume production of waveguide antennas. Frencken Group is an established high volume producer and fulfills all standards and certificates required to be a supplier to the Automotive industry. Together with Frencken, Gapwaves is capable to produce antennas in high volume scenarios at competitive prices.
Gapwaves CEO Lars-Inge Sjöqvist comments:
“To ensure the quality of the antennas to be mounted into the radar module, efficient test equipment is needed to ensure that the antennas have correct RF- (Radio Frequency) properties in a highly automated production flow. Gapwaves has developed this system in recent years and sees this order as a further step towards establishing high volume production for the automotive industry.”
