More about Triad Magnetics

In the 1950s, Triad helped Leo Fender and surf guitarist Dick Dale turn up the volume on amplifiers, leading to the birth of Rock & Roll. Next Triad was the dominant supplier to the TV industry in the 1960s. We also supported the Apollo Moon Missions, and then the first microwave ovens in the 1970s. In the 1980-90s, the Triad brand played a leading role within industrial automation and controls, lighting system electronic ballasts and innovative medical devices.

With the new millennium, Triad has emerged after a number of years as a division of the Litton, MagneTek and Parallax companies. We’ve returned to our roots in Southern California in a 38,000 square foot state of the art facility located in Perris, CA. We are a subsidiary of the Axis Corporation, headquartered in Taiwan with a sophisticated R&D and design center, as well as manufacturing facilities in Mainland China.

With more than 500 transformer manufacturers in the world, we realize you have a choice. Why choose Triad Magnetics? Having served the needs of our industry for more than half a century, we believe our experience makes the difference. If there is one point our experience has taught us, it is that we must remain flexible and adaptable to the changing needs of the market.

Advanced cellular production techniques provide the shortest cycle times in the business and minimize material handling. The industry's most comprehensive array of production tools include automated fly winding and stick winding processes for bobbin and paper type construction. State-of-the-art welding and impregnation facilities add speed and flexibility.

Quality and Reliability
Producing products for long-run reliability requires a higher level of personal commitment. For example, each manufacturing team is empowered with the responsibility for quality and reliability through a highly-evolved system of critical self-inspection. The triad Magnetics system of in-process inspection, pre-ship audits, and failure analysis has allowed many of our customers to eliminate their incoming inspection process while our continuous improvement protocol provided the highest levels of product quality and reliability.
