The SDP/SI Engineering Department is highly regarded as among the best in the industry.
Renowned for their expertise in various design, production and application engineering disciplines, SDP/SI engineers are regularly solicited for problem-solving assistance by customers and peers alike. They also work closely with clients’ product development teams to achieve mutually beneficial design and cost efficiencies.
A wealth of experience and knowledge accumulated by the SDP/SI engineers through the years is contained in a design handbook regularly published by the company. Copies of this extremely popular reference source are widely disseminated to technical schools and engineering institutions throughout the world.
If engineering is the company’s driving force, manufacturing is its life blood.
Over 65% of SDP/SI ready-to-deliver components are produced in-house. This unusually broad manufacturing capability translates into tighter control over product quality and production costs. It also facilitates just-in-time deliveries of customer orders while improving overall project management operations.
The manufacturing division represents more than half of the company’s total workforce.
Obligated to comply with exacting standards and rigid quality requirements, SDP/SI manufacturing personnel hone their exceptional skills through an effective educational process of ongoing knowledge transfer, supplemented by on-the-job training.
To produce its diverse line of drive and automation components, SDP/SI maintains an impressive array of metal and plastic fabricating equipment ranging from conventional engine lathes to precision gear cutting machinery to highly sophisticated 11-axis CNC milling machines. Most of the manufacturing tooling and fixtures are produced in house as are the programs that control the CNC-equipped machinery.
Never known to rest on its laurels, SDP/SI continues to probe the future for improved designs, new products… and innovative ways for setting ideas into motion.
