At SADAP, our aim is to achieve the optimal balance between customer requirements and costs. Our tailored packages – Standard and Premium – allow for flexible adaptation to the diverse needs of different companies.
The Standard package is particularly recommended for small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as for the Proof of Concept for new products. Standardized solutions, such as standard foils for foil bearings and standard segments for other air bearings, are employed to efficiently meet design requirements, especially within standardized applications.
For mass production and the post-development phase, the Premium package is recommended. Through extensive investigations, customized solutions are offered with radial and thrust bearings specifically tailored to the machine’s application. This involves not only optimizing the bearings but also enhancing the performance of air lubrication. Distinct features of the Premium package include foils with optimized stiffness properties for various operating conditions and an advanced generation of foil bearings.
Comprehensive customer support, including assistance up to prototype production, is included in the Premium package. The iterative design process takes into account manufacturing tolerances to optimize the design for efficient large-scale production. The costs for this Premium offering can be calculated either as one-time project costs, depending on the project scope and required analyses, or as a licensing fee, structured according to the number of products in which the bearings are utilized.
