As far as research and development is concerned, the company’s nerve centre is in Italy: Olgiate Comasco is the site of all processes.
Integration of skills and continuous innovation are the keywords that allow Sisme’s products to evolve constantly.
The R&D centre conducts research in the fields of Electronics, Mechanics, Chemistry and Materials. It carries out research on new materials and deals with mechanical, electromagnetic and electronic design. It analyses product reliability and validates processes. It develops, integrates and tests software and hardware.
A crucial part of the research process is the phase involving simulations and experimental tests. A fully-equipped, state-of-the-art laboratory carefully examines any critical issues.
In order to be able to declare the products suitable, it meticulously carries out surge tests, tests on earth continuity, dielectric strength and electrical absorption, acoustic tests and life tests. Some of these checks are then also replicated downstream of production, to verify that quality standards are met.
