SDMO’s research and development unit is made up of three separate areas that operate interdependently: the design offices, the prototypes department and the product engineering department.
At the request of the Marketing department, the design offices develop products inspired by market trends. The job of testing is passed on to the prototypes department, which produces the generating set and performs all the necessary tests on it, at its laboratory. Following the tests, a deliverable is sent to the department that initiated the request. If the findings of the deliverable fulfil its expectations, the product engineering department takes the baton and prepares the genset to enter production. It makes the relevant decisions to ensure that the conditions of production reflect the initial prototype, with the best quality/cost ratio.
Benefitting from ISO17025 accreditation since 2009, SDMO’s laboratory uses an approved testing procedure and COFRAC calibration to meet the stated requirements.
It is able to perform 5 main categories of tests:
To perform its tasks, the laboratory benefits from tailored facilities. Extending over more than 2000 m², it has high-performance equipment at its disposal: a prototype construction area with a 20-tonne lift, 3 test benches with control rooms, a sound level area (Bruële&kjaër station) 1000m² in size, etc.
During the entire testing process, it applies its principle of independence from its customers, which are principally the design offices, but also the marketing, production and after-sales departments.
