Sioux Technologies is an expert in mechanics and accurate positioning. We support developers of high-tech equipment in the development of groundbreaking machines and their applications.
Mechanics - the physical domain of physical motion, balance and forces - is and will remain the foundation of mechanical engineering. The demands placed on state-of-the-art high-tech equipment in this area are enormous, particularly in terms of accuracy, speed and predictability of motion and positioning. This poses major challenges in mechanical design. Sioux helps machine builders overcome them.
Today's precision mechanics was born in Brainport Eindhoven. Sioux is an exponent of this region and has more than 50 years of experience in mechanical development of prototypes, one-offs and series products, for example for the semicon, analytical and medical industries. With this, Sioux helps customers develop high-quality functional competitive products and accelerate their time-to-market. Our competences include Design principles for precision mechanisms, model-based design, structural and dynamic analysis, heat and flow analysis, integration, testing and Design for Excellence.
Accurate positioning not infrequently requires pushing mechanical limits. This requires an understanding of all possible aspects that affect the behavior of advanced machines, such as materials, strength and stiffness, dynamic and thermal behavior, magnetism and friction. This should result in a mechanical design that gets the most out of a machine and its application. It must also be manufacturable, for example from the point of view of quality and efficiency in production and service. Sioux has all these competences in-house and distinguishes itself as an exceptional partner for high-tech machine builders.
'It starts with craftmanship and experience. '
