The Swiss subsidiary company was created in 1999 as a result of the takeover of SIG Antriebstechnik AG and is part of Curtiss-Wright Controls Inc. (Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, www.cwcontrols.com)
The company operates primarily as a supplier and off-the-shelf engineering service provider. Swiss precision and know-how is still very much a part of the CWDT philosophy, resulting in products that are global leaders in their field – for example: hydro-pneumatic suspensions for all-wheel drive and tracked emergency vehicles, targeting and stabilization systems, servo drives and controllers for gun and tank turrets, and ammunition feeder systems. The company also played a decisive role in the development of railroad train tilting technology, and has designed sophisticated dynamic hydraulic solutions for specific industrial purposes. Market activity is becoming more and more focused on commercial, civilian applications. The company possesses further skills in the fields of control electronics, sensors, software, and systems integration. CWDT employs some 80 people at the Neuhausen site, half of whom are engineers.
