EMI Shielding As a fabricator and distributor of EMI shielding products. Astor Industrial Supply provides shielding solutions for the aerospace, defense, and electronics industries. Typically shielding is applied to enclosures, separating electrical devices from the outside world, and to cables, separating wires from the environment the cable runs through. The shielding can reduce the coupling of radio waves, electromagnetic fields, and electrostatic fields though not static or low frequency magnetic fields. The amount of reduction depends very much upon the material used, its thickness, and the frequency of the fields of interest. Fabrication & Machining Astor Industrial Supply offers a wide variety of machined and fabricated products with varying applications for a large industrial demographic. With your print, sketch or sample we can fabricate parts to meet your requirements. We also provide value added plastic fabrication services that complement your in-house resources.
