Aerospace Innovation is our daily business
The aviation industry is SII Netherlands’s main customer group. Over the past years, SII Netherlands has established close relationships with many original equipment manufacturers (OEM) all over the world.
Due to this relationship our experienced engineers are able to perform work packages on structures, systems and interior.
Experienced design, stress and certification in:
- High lift devices (flaps, flaptrack devices), full conversion of passenger aircraft into freighter.
- Particular Risk Analyses and clearance checks.
- Flight test installation. (water ballast, flutter vane, sensor installation, cable routing).
- Interior monument design (Galleys, Stowage’s).
- Certification of LD-MCR (Lower Deck Mobile Crew Rest)
SII Netherlands has always been at the forefront of technologies in the digital world. Over the years, our SII experts have specialized themselves in the development of digital solutions that support businesses in their digital journey.
What kind of expertise we can offer to our customers:
- Software engineers
- SQL Devlopers
- Data integrators
- Integration analysts
We can support your business with our team of digital experts in several domains.
In addition to the field of aircraft, SII Netherlands also undertakes projects in the field of transportation systems.
The design of modern train and metro transportation systems has advanced significantly during the past decade, in part with the implementation of 3D CAD systems and new materials. Engineering services performed by SII Netherlands BV contribute to innovative developments that play an essential part in the daily life of any modern economy.
Improved passenger comfort for trains/ rolling stock
For NS Treinmodernisering, SII Netherlands designed and developed a modular welded airco mounting structure. The modification was part of the modernisation of the DDZ train compartment and integrated with the currently available production technologies.
Geometric interfaces, structural strength, materials combinations, manufacturing requirements, corrosion protection etc. were all taken into consideration during the design process. Parts, sub assemblies and installation design were carried out using Unigraphics design software whilst stress specialists used Finite Element Analysis (Patran / Nastran).
Design and stress teams worked closely together to ensure that the final product meets all the load case requirements stipulated by the certifying body. All technical design information and reports, including FE models and FE validation/correlation with design-test results, were handed over to the customer and the authorities.
Numerous ongoing projects in this field of business have been successfully executed and are in progress right now.
Good design leads to simple solutions
Engineering is a wide field of which design is one small element which brings all disciplines together. Design is the field of engineering that deals with product form, fit and function. The engineering group includes design, finite element, production and system engineers. From our aerospace origins we are capable of working with multiple specialized disciplines and translating all requirements into a practical product. An aerospace material application that currently is expanding to other industries is the use of composite materials, from our years of experience in composite materials we are in an excellent position to support the engineering and production preparation support.
The most significant characteristics of the design group are:
• Good design generalists & special knowledge in numerous engineering disciplines
• Phased design process for projects (PDR, CDR, FDR)
• Design integration of manufacturing-related issues form an integral part of the process
• Technical documentation (drawings etc.)
• Design of Systems
Sii Netherlands can draw on a pool of engineers capable of working with different engineering software tools. Most commonly these include:
• FEMAP / NASTRAN;
• PATRAN / NASTRAN;

At PAL-V we are supporting the development of world’s first commercial flying car. The flying car is based on a three wheeled vehicle and a gyrocopter. The proof of concept has been test-flown in 2012 and currently the commercial version, the PAL-V Liberty, is in its final stages of development.
Sii Netherlands is supporting PAL-V with the following engineering activities:
•Rotor hub mechanism design;
•Control stick mechanism design;
•Primary structure stress analysis and weight saving activities;
•Development of hinges for the folding mechanism;
•Composite design of the rotor blades and propeller.
All activities also include certification data activities.
Our engineers are innovative and creative, we like to cooperate with interesting engineering companies.
We get energy from solving engineering issues.
SII Netherlands is always open for new opportunities, and does not fear to embrace new challenging engineering projects.
We have a highly skilled engineering team available,read more about it via our outsourcing page.
