ETS-Lindgren Inaugurates New Facility in China to Bolster 5G Test and Measurement Capabilities

ETS-Lindgren has inaugurated a new 37,700 square feet factory located in Wuqing, Tianjin, China. The new factory will enable ETS-Lindgren to increase its manufacturing capabilities and expedite product shipments to customers in China and throughout Asia. ETS-Lindgren's popular wireless device test systems, such as the industry leading series of Antenna Measurement Systems (AMS) as well as smaller test boxes for 5G applications, will be manufactured at the new factory.

The factory will also produce Models AMS-7000AMS-8050AMS-8055AMS-8040 and GTEM! test systems. Additionally, a dedicated EMC lab is available to integrate turnkey EMC Test Systems; a second dedicated lab is set up for cable assembly and EMC/RF Microwave probe repairs. Modular shielding panels used for the S-101 and S-81 series of RF shielded chambers supplied for the automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics and wireless industries will be manufactured in Wuqing, Tianjin as well as specialty copper shielded panels used in the healthcare industry for MRI enclosures.

RF shielded accessories for these chambers will  be manufactured at the new factory, including the RFD-60 and RFSD-100 swing and sliding doors, waveguide air vents, connector panels, and pipe penetrations – to name just a few of the accessories required for turnkey RF shielded chambers. Customers benefit not only from the convenience of ETS-Lindgren's in-house total system capability, but also from increased confidence in the RF shielding integrity inherent in a total system solution. The Wuqing, Tianjin factory is the fourth ETS-Lindgren location in China, joining those in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

The company will apply for ISO 9001 certification of the Wuqing, Tianjin factory in the immediate future. All existing ETS-Lindgren factories worldwide are ISO 9001:2015 certified, including those located in Europe and North America, where the company's headquarters is based in Cedar Park, Texas.
