SDP/SI mechanical components, customized subassemblies
Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI), a provider of mechanical based design, engineering, and precision manufacturing services for critical motion control and small power transmission applications will be exhibiting at MD&M West 2019, February 5-7, 2019 Anaheim, California. Located in booth #1649, SDP/SI will be showcasing a variety of precision components, custom parts, and subassemblies used in medical devices, surgical robotics, and healthcare industries. Examples of precision gears, gear assemblies, miniature drive system components and other component options will be on display, including a new antivibration coupling used in scanning devices such as MRI. Product experts and engineering staff will be available at the booth to answer any questions.
SDP/SI provides comprehensive engineering and manufacturing services and is highly responsive to the changing needs of customers.
“We are very aware of time and budget restraints that our customers are being asked to meet,” says Doug Kerester, VP sales and marketing. “In many cases, by partnering early in the development stage we are able to offer improvements in design and manufacturability leading to time and cost reduction.”
Sr. Development Engineer, Mike Yandolino notes, “To move a customer’s project into production faster we recently invested in a high-quality printer, the 3D Systems ProJet MJP 2500. Being able to 3D print and deliver a component or complex assembly into the engineers’ hand for design review quickly and at a cost savings is a tremendous benefit.”
Manufacturing high-precision components and assemblies, SDP/SI machined and molded parts are used in many medical devices and healthcare industries. Customized parts and assemblies are made for robotic surgical equipment, minimally invasive gear drivers, patient positioning, pharmaceutical processing, pumps, and medical/dental instrumentation.
