Most of our projects focus on the design of complex systems. They require the interoperability of many components and industrial subsystems from mechanical, electronic, automatic and computer engineering: mechatronics. We also speak more generically of integration or system engineering.
In addition to the unitary development of each of the components, the difficulty of this type of project lies in the complexity of the overall design, in the definition of interfaces and means of interoperability between subsystems, as well as in the care and completeness. "Testing" that will validate the proper functioning of the complete system.
This is where our first expertise lies: to be able, following an analysis of your needs, to design an overall solution, integrating components and subsystems of our different expertise.
A SAPHIR Project Manager is accountable to the Client for all the commitments related to a Project over its entire lifetime, from pre-projects to maintenance. He coordinates all the stakeholders involved in the project: technical team members, management, logistic actors, suppliers, subcontractors.
For single or small series systems, we usually prefer integrating "on the shelf" programmable solutions, from major manufacturers, including those of National Instruments.
For specific needs (typically in analog), and to address the needs of larger series, our team designs and develops specific electronic cards incorporating standard components of the market.
Our team is responsible for designing all electrical aspects, from the arrival of "strong currents" to their transformation into "low current" or their consumption by a machine.
We select and integrate for this purpose the various electrical components necessary for the proper functioning of the System. And ensure the packaging of the system under an "envelope" adapted and compliant with standards.

Through Qualimatest (QMT Group) , we have particular expertise in micromechanics.
We design and build software with potentially very rich features, despite the apparent simplicity of their interfaces. Adapted to the target audience, they cover a spectrum ranging from industrial desks to high-end GUI for R&D.
The use of standardized functional and technical components and processes, developed over the years, provides reliable and proven components.

We design Distributed Control and Command of your Automated Dynamic Systems. For this, we rely on system status information (the control part, notably obtained via sensors), to which we apply algorithms to send instructions to certain components of the system (the command part).
This expertise essentially involves modeling and mathematical skills, then technical implementation skills.
Working with SAPHIR means relying on experts who can understand the nature of the "physical" information they process and manipulate.
Indeed, the SAPHIR engineers are for many from the world of Physical Measurement, Instrumentation and Signal Processing. Upstream, we understand your measurement problem, its constraints and the expected use, in order to build a complete, coherent and reliable measuring chain from the sensor to the digitizer. Downstream, we implement the most appropriate treatments and algorithms to lead to a relevant interpretation.
This expertise is also available through our dedicated Service Offer, typically if you already have measurement data, and you are looking for support in their processing and interpretation.
SAPHIR has been working on dynamic signals for nearly 30 years, with rare expertises in the fields of acoustics and vibration, particularly in the following applications:
This expertise combines the art of Optics (choose a field, observation, an instrument, illuminate the subject, develop, ...) and Computer Vision (process and analyze images and video streams) .
Our Optics & Vision expertise is mainly driven by Qualimatest , a subsidiary of QMT Group , supplemented by SAPHIR's own expertise, including a doctor PhD in Vision. And our Vision know-how has been capitalized for many years on the QMT Vision Inspector platform.
