State-of-the-art mechatronic products and production systems

Sioux develops and creates innovative mechatronic solutions, from conceptual design to the production of test sets, single-use machines and serial products. This enables us to support high-tech OEMs in realising and accelerating innovation processes, improving the robustness and capacity of products, and reducing costs.

Sioux has vast expertise in precision movement and positioning, miniaturisation, vacuum technology, optical monitoring and embedded design. That is the foundation of our impressive track record as a developer and producer of high-end modules, systems and machines.

SAXCS motion control platform

Sioux is able to simulate and test line design completely, to automatically transfer it to an embedded system with SAXCS (Smart And fleXible Control Solutions).

Ron van Oosterhout, IAI Industrial Systems

With our smart, innovative mechatronic solutions, we help clients perform better in their international markets. We work on subprojects, but also offer complete solutions; Customised innovation, technology development, integration and production. We carry out inspection, assembly and testing work in our separate project rooms and cleanrooms.

Cases

Precision carrier for the imaging and printing industry

The Generic Substrate Carrier, an autonomous development of Sioux, has many applications. For example, the precision carrier for the imaging and printing industry has already proven its value in the graphic and industrial markets.

Vision medicine production

Sioux developed production machines for MSD Emergency and Implanon contraceptives. Every product is inspected with quality vision. Meanwhile, several copies of these FDA-certified machines are in operation 24 hours a day.

Design Nanometrics

The crystalline mastering machine is a stunning product development of Singulus. The technological challenges in the field of laser writing were enormous due to the high accuracy and speed of blue ray mastering. Sioux took care of writing the mechatronics for nanometer and completely designed new control electronics.

Wafer and reticle handlers

Sioux is a close technology partner of ASML. For example, we designed the development of various wafer and reticlehandler modules. In that, wafers and reticles are thermally conditioned, aligned and positioned with high accuracy on the wafer table
