Company Activities

The principal activities of Sicame Australia involve the design, manufacture and supply of specialist electrical single and multi-tap connectors, fuses and mechanical hardware for use on overhead and underground electricity distribution systems. These activities are supported by the latest computer design and manufacturing programs available. Along with our advanced machinery and testing facilities, Sicame Australia is well placed at the forefront of manufacturing technology in Australia for this business sector. Our advanced modeling, prototyping and testing facilities enable extremely rapid new product development and testing. This results in very "short time to market" products together with the ability to produce relatively small production runs to suit specific customer requirements.

Research & Development & Expertise

Engineering and Research & Development

The function of research and development is part of the engineering department’s responsibility. The need for R&D can be generated by two factors,

1. an unsolved problem or issue rose by a customer that requires a solution or

2. An advancement in product design or the application of advanced technology. The activities of R&D normally result in the development of new products and possible systems that are new to the industry or an adaptation of an existing product.

Not all of the efforts that are placed into R&D are visible to the eye. R&D could relate to internal components or a change in material science. Major and subtle changes that are developed through the R&D process generally advance the product for easier or wider application or resolve a function not previously capable.

Sicame utilizes the latest in design software. Primarily we utilize Solidworks, in which testing of the product can be undertaken on virtual prototypes before the first prototypes are constructed, further reducing development time.

As part of its R&D facilities it utilizes the latest in rapid prototyping. This allows for a hands on look at what the end product will look and feel like. It allows the virtual design concept to be taken into a physical representation of the finished product. This assists in the reduction of ‘time to market’ and allows for any cosmetic changes in design to be quickly, easily and effectively implemented.

 

Engineering & Manufacturing

The engineering department at Sicame are responsible for a number of facets of the process of product development through to production, testing and final manufacturing. As outline previously, research & development is only one of these facets, from then on engineering is responsible to take it from the concept and design stage into manufacturing. To be able to do this they are responsible for tooling, process control, sub component assembly design, quality assurance and final testing.

The engineering department is responsible to ensure the final product meets the requirements as outlined by the customer. It is important that both the design of the final product is reproducible in adequate volumes for manufacturing that maintain cost effectiveness and competitiveness. Sicame Australia’s engineering keep abreast new technologies in both material Science and processing to maintain the market leadership.

There is normally a technical standards required by the industries, however it is often that our technological advancements are well in front of these requirements of the standards. This is due to Sicame’s ability to develop new and innovative products including utilization of advanced technologies and materials into new products.

History of Sicame Australia


 

The Beginning of Sicame Australia

Australia Pty Ltd was originally established as a private business in the mid 1980s as Rooney North Johnson and established itself as a supplier of line equipment to the Australian utility industry. By the late 1980s it was partially acquired by Sicame Group and started local manufacturing and assembly as RNJ Sicame.

By the 1990s the ‘Sicame Group had fully acquired the company as Sicame Australia Pty Ltd. With the drive, enthusiasm and dedication of a small team focused on growing a long-term business, the organization expanded and dominated the new emerging market of LVABC connector equipment in Australia.

The Product Beginning

With a strong reputation as the leading manufacturer and supplier of Low Voltage Aerial Bundled Cable (LVABC) Insulation Piercing Connectors and associated equipment. The Company has invested heavily in engineering and research and development in the field of insulation piercing and waterproof technology and is considered a world leader in this field for LV system connectors.

Sicame Australia has expanded its product range utilizing it’s advanced technology to develop an innovative and cutting edge range of connectors that are fully insulated and waterproof without the need to strip the outer insulation within the underground market. These products are made for the local Australian market and a special range of fitting was developed for the USA market. In April 2006 the company started exporting to the USA and has not only maintained this to the present date but also have added additional product to the USA export range. Other new markets and products have been developed for underground systems and exported to the UK, Europe and now India.

Emerging Markets

With the ever increasing competitive nature of the electrical utility market in Australia and a shrinking customer base by the amalgamation of customers, it is important that Sicame Australia continually expands it’s range and is focused on a broader market. Sicame has acquired Argenton Engineering who is the distributor for CATU Safety equipment (a subsidiary of Sicame Group) and manufactured Earthing systems. This acquisition has resulted in an expansion into the electrical safety market and has assisted Sicame to extend its range of products. Sicame now supply Earthing and safety equipment to nearly every utility in Australia with exports to New Zealand. In line with this market expansion Sicame Australia entered the Commercial and Industrial market supplying the range of Mecatraction, Catu and specialist Sicame products and this market will be a focus in the year’s ahead.
