SMS is able to provide a design and tooling service to clients who require unique sensors to meet specific application requirements.
Sensors are designed using a CAD process to the guidelines outlined below. These guidelines ensure the sensors will function to a high level of reliability and have been built up over many years of stringent development and testing. The guidelines still provide considerable flexibility in the final sensor shape.
The sensors can be designed from user supplied drawings or images. In the case of complex geometries moulding techniques may be used to ensure the sensor meets the dimensional requirements of the client.
The design and tooling process for silicone sensors takes approximately 3 weeks to complete once the final design has been signed of to dispatch of the first sensors. The process can be as short as one week for simple polymer sensors.
