Yeaster uses Machining and Printing Services from SIMCO

December 12th, 2014

Yeaster Uses SIMCO’s Value Added Services for Machining and Printing


SIMCO supplied the enclosures and provide the machining and printing we needed for our project. We couldnt be happier with their service.

Without yeast, you cant have beer. Without happy & healthy yeast, you cant make great beer. Yeastir is an affordable, high quality magnetic stir plate that helps cultivate yeast cells to make better beer!

Yeaster Plate

Stir plates use magnetic fields to stir fluids without introducing unwanted dirt, bacteria, or other organisms. Yeastir is special, because it uses a USB connection, which is convenient, low power, and available around the world. The same model of Yeastir is used by beer brewers across the United States, Canada, and Europe without modification.

A good stir plate must provide a stable, level surface to safely seat lab flasks 10 inches wide and weighing more than 10 pounds. Great products have unique feel to them and we wanted Yeastir to feel solidly constructed and durable. We use enclosures from SIMCO, because they offer us the same high quality products that we want offer our customers.

We, the creators of Yeastir, started with the desire build a beer brewing tool that we would be proud to sell. We decided to make a stir plate when we noticed that our brew friends were avoiding cultivating yeast, because they could not afford to buy and did not want to build their own stir plates.

For more information about Yeastir and how to order, check out

As always, best of luck with your next brew!

Sweet ‘N Warm Amplifier

January 30th, 2014

Hand wiring is a proven method to insure good, solid connections in electronic circuits. There are no printed boards in the Sweet ‘N Warm amplifier.

Only the highest quality components are found in the signal path. Single source stereo assures that noise and distortion will not manifest itself in the selection function.

Many engineers and experimenters alike find the glass vacuum tubes attractive to look at while they dissipate heat into the air. For both of these reasons they are located largely on top of the enclosure.

Sweet ‘N Warm Amplifier consists of a stereo power amplifier driven by vacuum tube signal preamps.

A separate power amp uses an ultra low noise operational amplifier to drive high quality headphones without the need to reduce power from the speaker amps for that purpose.

Our customers include recording artists, studio musicians and many that require clear, clean audio for any purpose that 2 x 68 watts can handle.

In case of lightning, or other power line disturbance, the primary fuse is located on the rear panel of the unit for easy access.

Sweet ‘N Warm Amplifier is proudly housed in a quality SIMCO Enterprise enclosure.

Audio Adapters XLR – designed by Studio 1

October 14th, 2013

Studio 1 has designed a new generation of XLR audio adapters for audio engineers, videographers and professional camera operators. Five models are available and allow the operator to record audio to two separate audio tracks, or they can be used as an audio mixer. The units have a belt clip to afford easy access to the controls and hands free operation. They can also be used with steady cam devices and jib arms, or be mounted directly to the tripod head.

Studio 1 designed its XLR Audio Adapters in the 160X25 SATURN enclosure. SIMCO machines the cutouts needed for Studio 1 ‘s assembly requirements and pad prints the sharp graphics for a totally customized appearance. The BC-1 Belt Clip completes and enhances the unit.

In addition to providing enclosures to Studio 1, SIMCO also assists in fabricating Jib Arms and Boom Poles for Studio 1 ‘s special requirements in our own machine shop.

David Knarr of Studio 1 says ”We never worry when we place an order with SIMCO. We know we ‘re always going to get quality parts delivered on time, every time. ”

Speech Enhancer Clarifies Speech!

October 14th, 2013

ESE Medical has developed a technology to make speech louder and clearer that goes beyond mere amplification.

The Speech Enhancer is a voice processor, which changes articulation. For those persons facing communication challenges because of unintelligible or low-volume voices, the Speech Enhancer is often the doorway to independence.

The system has a microphone and lightweight unit worn at the waist. When the person speaks, their voice comes out instantly sounding just like them, but clear and audible and with the proper volume. It also works with the telephone and computer speech recognition software.

ESE Medical designed the Speech Enhancer in SIMCO‘s pocket-size ENDEAVOR enclosure, the 35TB. ESE selected the 35TB Black enclosure over others sampled because of the appearance, size and the usable wall-to-wall space behind the end panel. SIMCO machines openings in the enclosure and end panel for assembly requirements and provides the sharp pad printed graphics for identification.

“We’re extremely pleased with SIMCO’s response to our special needs; this enabled us to accelerate our product introduction schedule and have three more products on fast track development. ”

October 13th, 2013

This issue of DISCLOSURES features the AudioImage 2L and 4L Music On Hold Commander by Invotel Corporation.

These unique adapters enable regular analog telephones to have a Music/OnHold feature utilizing the HOLD button on the telephone itself.

Invotel designed the Audioimage in SIMCO‘s 35CBA ENDEAVOR enclosure. The contoured top with its recessed areas was perfect for the Invotel product. SIMCO machined openings in one of the recessed areas and also in the drop-in rear panel to accommodate switches and connectors. Eyecatching graphics applied to the other recessed area in the black enclosure completed its high-tech appearance.
