Engineering Group

The Engineering design department of Scientific Instrumentation provides assistance in the following areas:

• Mechanics
• Electronics
• Electromechanics
• Optics
• Vacuum
• Thermodynamics
• Mechanical and electric drives
• 3D CAD
• Purchase of equipment or components
• Adapting existing equipment
• Patents
• Machinery Directive (safety)

No job too small or too complex!

The specifications of any realised product can be ascertained with the help of an extensive range of measuring instruments:

• Fast oscilloscopes with extensive analysis functions
• Spectrum analysers
• Various high-tech power supplies
• Multichannel digital analysers
• Options for SMD soldering
• Materials for EMC work

What can Engineering do for you?

Within Scientific Instrumentation, Engineering is the department that is responsible for new equipment, electronics, instruments and tools. It is client-driven department that realises advice and detailed designs in cooperation with our clients. Thanks to our highly-educated employees and modern technological instruments, such as CAD and FEM, we are capable of delivering state-of-the-art projects.

Owing to our technical management capability, we can provide assistance to our clients from project start to finish.  From the moment a client approaches us with a question, to having a product realised in our workshops and finally to the moment of commencement of operations at the company of our client. We are not only capable of handling large projects; we also make minor adaptations and provide advice about the purchase of equipment.

Since electronics almost always have some form of software-controlled intelligence, Engineering also designs and realises software.

High-quality tools and people who can operate them make it possible for us to realise a wide range of products, according to the specifications of our clients, ranging from small interfaces, to microprocessor designs and complex data acquisition systems (for CERN, among other clients).

Important tools are the Mentor Graphics tools with which electronics are designed from scheme to complex prints. But it is also used to configure hardware. At all levels, we can realise simulations to work according to the ‘first time right’ principle.
