MUMETAL® Facility in Chicago is Complete
Posted by Josh Wickler, Director of Research and Development on Jan 12th, 2023
After two years of work through a global pandemic and economic challenges, Magnetic Shield's new building expansion is complete. The new facility houses 25 ft. tall storage racks to hold inventory of our most popular material, MUMETAL®. As the number one source for mumetal in the world, we keep large inventories of sheets, coils, plates, bar, and wire in stock to reduce lead time for our customers. Beyond inventory, the new 1,000 sq. foot mezzanine provides a space to process custom shield assemblies through quality control, finishing, and packaging. The existing 10,000 sq. foot facility has been renovated to make more room for manufacturing and fabrication equipment. The New R&D Lab will serve as space for testing and evacuation of magnetic shields and assembly of large shielding like our new MuMETAL chambers (MuChamber) and Magnetic Shielding Rooms (MuRoom).
