Altair was born from the Medical Industry
Altair was conceived from Varian engineers who had the vision to start a company that would braze Varian's LINACs together because, in the '90s, Varian desired to outsource manufacturing while focusing on their own efficiencies. Although Varian ultimately did not outsource their brazing, the Altair founders set up shop with a single brazing furnace, and designed their first RF Window Assembly.
The worldwide healthcare market is influenced by technology that is addressing an ever-increasing number of medical ailments and is aiding in early diagnosis and prevention of diseases. We support many products for customers who make X-ray Tubes for CT Scanners to those for treatment and early detection of cancer.
Materials & Miniaturization
With the technical abilities of the ARG team coupled with our proprietary vacuum and hydrogen brazing process, we can join dissimilar and exotic materials with precision for a myriad of applications that would not be possible otherwise. Vacuum and hydrogen brazing is a powerful manufacturing technique that engineers and scientists can leverage to circumvent many of the challenges of miniaturization and traditional assembly design.
We have developed our own linear accelerators (LINAC) and many proprietary products such as RF Windows, Electron Guns, Exit Windows, Waveguides, Anode Assemblies, Target Assemblies and Ion Pumps that make up the fundamental structure of a complete LINAC used in Oncology Systems.
We support many products for customers who make X-ray Tubes for CT Scanners to those for treatment and early detection of cancer.
Altair Products can serve as a direct fit peripheral to your OEM structure, or a replacement for failed assemblies on existing systems and machines. Work or working with our channel partners to refurbish or remanufacture your OEM’s accelerators using Altair engineered and manufactured peripherals.
The work we do for the medical industry leverages naturally into the Security market, which also uses X-ray Tubes and Linear Accelerators (LINACs). These devices produce high energy x-rays which are used in security inspection systems of baggage, semi-trucks, ship hulls and other types of cargo.
