Using a combination of OpenBuilds purchasable components and over 25 custom 3D-printed parts, the mechanical portion of the Microwave Filter Tuner is the foundation for the large variety of electronics and software necessary to universally and automatically tune microwave filters. For information, check out our demonstration video here:
Microwave Filter Tuner
The Microwave Filter Tuner (MFT) combined with the University of Regina’s tuning algorithm automatically tunes microwave filters by using a custom CNC machine with a computer vision system for identifying, mapping, and tuning each filter element, providing improved consistency, flexibility, and accuracy compared to traditional methods. The MFT is low cost and is capable of tuning multiple filter configurations with minimal preparation.
