“We knew how to use the Nuclear Valley network” says Sylvain André, Managing Director of Sarrazin Technologies.
In particular, he worked closely with the CEA List in the framework of the collaborative “COBOMANIP” project which he is the initiator of, and which was certified at the end of 2009 by Nuclear Valley. Today, the resulting ultra precise and programmable manipulator is going to be tested under industrial conditions by AREVA and AIRBUS. Once the project is completed at the end of 2013, there will be many benefits: 3 patents, recruitment of a doctor beginning 2014 and collaboration lasting several years with the CEA List, the contractual conditions of which are currently being drawn up.
“As well as the innovative aspects, the entire company has improved its performance, especially concerning mecatronics” said M. André.
Support for SMEs
“The day devoted to patents was a very important event for us and the introduction, provided by a Nuclear Valley advisor, to a key player of the nuclear industry has proved to be very useful. We would like to thank you again for your understanding and your efforts in supporting an SME like ours.”
“The support provided by the “ACAMAS Energie” business strategy tool really allowed me to put things in perspective. In spite of the difficulty of the operational implementation of the project, the work can be used again. The consultants should be congratulated for their competence.”
“The day of presentations made by the Creys-Malville members was very interesting, the answers provided exceeded expectations and were unambiguous.”
