What we do

Who We Are

Paramium Technologies is a startup created to meet a need in the radio communications industry for fast, flexible, and accurate fabrication of freeform curved metal panels. We leverage multiple technologies developed at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory, Wyant College of Optical Sciences, the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering department, and the Systems and Industrial Engineering department.

The Technology

Our patent pending electromagnetic thermoforming technology is a highly energy efficient adaptable method of shaping precision metal panels creating a hybrid effect of localized induction heating (Joule effect) and electromagnetic force (Lorentz effect) to heat and press the panel at the same time along the non-contact “tool” path controlled by a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine as depicted.

The Process

Our team invented and developed two complementary technologies that come together in rapid and agile system for forming complex, compound curved metal sheets. The adjustable mold adapts to the desired shape without machining or hardware changes. The induction tool dynamically heats and presses the workpiece to conform it to the adjustable mold.

"Paramium Technologies revolutionizes radio communications with advanced, precise curved metal panels, harnessing University of Arizona's cutting-edge tech and a diverse team of experts for unmatched solutions."
