  • WE BRING IDEAS TO LIFE. THE JOY OF TECHNOLOGY.

    A reliable and experienced partner, we will support you from the initial idea to series production.

Trust our experience.

In 1997, SII Technologies was founded as a classic engineering office named CADCON. Since then, it has continuously expanded its range of services. We can now offer our clients everything from a single source: We function as a service provider, producer, and systems supplier rolled into one. But development services are at the heart of SII Technologies – our passion is development, and service is our conviction. We develop client-specific solutions of the very highest quality at our 12 locations around the world

Digital Beehive 4.0

The flexible Engineering and IT Support for mid-sized companies

The private cloud solution of the SII Technologies saves costs and allows a fast adaptation to your request of capacities.

During order peaks, there is always the same question: “How can we adapted data handling, project performance and capacities quickly to current requirements?” The answer is Digital Beehive – the ultra-modern private cloud solution from SII Technologies. The virtual Beehive inspires the workflow, opens up pioneering work environments and internal recruiting becomes unnecessary.

 

Scalable solution with high data security

The Digital Beehive bundles engineering and IT know-how for mid-sized companies. Experts are available by using virtual workstations. For networking the Digital Beehives offers everything from a single source. We supply from hardware and software components for external access up to virtual CAD workstations, installation and support. With the use of the private cloud, everyone works with the same information, without exchanging large amounts of data. Instead of bytes we transmit pixel, so the data sovereignty is save.

Outsourcing. Easy. Do it. With your private cloud

The roots of SII lie in mechanical design. With our know-how, garnered over the course of countless development and manufacturing projects, we design and develop cost-optimized, cutting-edge solutions for our clients. We offer both the design of parts and assemblies and the implementation of complex plants.

Experience from many areas of application and close cooperation with mechanics allows quick, reliable project execution. From the first draft of the circuit in the form of a circuit diagram to the construction of the control cabinets, we offer our clients the complete range of services, including documentation. We are also the right partner for secondary and primary planning of mid- and high-voltage switchgears for transformer stations. In this area, we support you in implementing your projects in the area of energy distribution.

Analysis and Simulation

 

Only when the connections between design and calculation are correct can the best possible product idea emerge. For product development or flow simulation, we develop individually tailored solutions for problems of strength, fatigue, and dynamic behaviour for elements made of various materials. Professional execution of linear and non-linear FEM analyses and the skilful application of the corresponding guidelines (DIN, FKM, AD, EC, HSB) form the basis of successful project work.

Development times are becoming increasingly short, and the complexity of automated plants is accelerating. In order to keep up with this trend, we perform virtual analyses of function, collision resistance, accessibility, safety, etc. using simulation tools as early as the design phase. The advantages are that the risk that the plant does not exhibit the required functionality when it is built is minimized, and the commissioning time is drastically reduced because problems such as costly modifications are avoided. The programming of individual robots is also first done in simulation tools, so that the programming need only be transferred to the actual robot and run. The cycle times can thus be verified ahead of time, which significantly reduces robot programming time.

Was your search for a standard solution with which to map and manage your processes fruitless? If so, we can work with you to develop just the application you need. We will support you in the development and formulation of your requirements and advise you on what is sensible, economical, and reflects the state of technology. After implementation, we will assume responsibility for software commissioning and training your staff in its use. To ensure that your tailored software solution reflects your current requirements, we round out our offer with service and maintenance.
