Custom-Designed Ribbon and Wire Filaments

Custom-designed ribbon and wire filaments and complete assemblies in short-run quantities are available.

The filaments, fabricated from tungsten, rhenium, or iridium, come in straight, hairpin, V-shape, spiral, or special configurations with yttria or thoria coatings and plain ends or platinum tabs for welding ease. The coatings ensure a burnout-resistant base metal and low-work function to improve filament operation.
