Welcome to Zerksus Engineering           South African based 

2018 Zerksus is now situated at a physical office /factory.

Although we would like to advertise all to come visit here in Hennops park we are still staying under the radar. Currently we are overloaded with work from larger companies. Thus we are not directly open to the public yet. We are, however, looking for agents to be the "middle man" for services like laser and plasma cutting. The reasons, not being completely open to the public, are that we do not have enough parking for random visitors and the majority of the day we are busy with meetings and design work.

So, apart from the standard consulting we do in electronic design and manufacturing, software development and general engineering we are gearing up for:
  • Laser cutting, engraving and photoplots:
    • 90W CO2, 2.8meter x 1.8 meter active area. Good for acrylic up to around 10mm and plywood.
    • Plasma cutting: 2.8meter x 1.8meter (but will take full standard sheets upto 2.5 x 1.5 meter). Mild steel up to 4mm and stainless steel up to 2mm. Will report back on aluminium.
    • 40W CO2, 90cm x 60cm. Smaller acrylic, wood and leather jobs. Both cutting and engraving. For acrylic we can go up to 5mm.
    • 5.5W 450nm diode engraver. 30cm x 30cm. Wood, leather and other engraveable materials.
    • Diazo film artwork. This is for specialized UV masks at maximum A5 size. This is high quality but time consuming prints at around 10um dot size. 
  • General 3-axis CNC:
    • 1kW spindle milling machine. We generally use it to machine aluminium parts although it can machine mild steel. 
    • 4kW spindle, servo positioned milling machine (currently unavailable). For larger steel jobs.
    • 2.2kW spindle, 24000 RPM, fine pitched router. PCB drilling, detailed finishing (e.g. aluminium mould final finishing).
    • 400W spindle, 38000 RPM, fine pitch drill. (currently unavailable). PCB holes and other flat surface drilling. Down to 0.3mm.
  • 3D Printing:
    • FDM 30cm x 30cm x 20cm. ABS and PLA. More materials soon.
    • SLA/DLP. (Currently unavailable). Will only do small parts for now. 5cm x 5cm x 5cm.
  • PCBs:
    • Rapid prototyping of PCB designs and semi to built-up boards. We currently do not make bareboard PCBs to the public. For that we are too expensive (we charge per hour). If you require bareboard PCBs within e.g. 24 hours then there are a few manufacturers in Gauteng that can do that. We are more the "I need an intercom design by tomorrow morning" kind of manufacturer. We can come up with a design and make the PCBs on-site. Generally we just make single or double sided PCBs, without through hole plating (if we can get away with it).
  • Server:
    • We have a Linux server on internet for custom services. If you have an app on a smart phone and you need to direct the data to a server then this is for you. Prices are negotiable.  
For any questions drop me an email to victor@zerksus.com.
Please note that we charge and invoice per hour and that we sell products per set price. If we sell you a small, cost sensitive microcontroller board for R99 we cannot help with endless assistance on how to program it.. No: "please help me with my Arduino project for school" or "my gate motor stopped working and you are the only one that can help me ... and I cannot afford to buy a new one for R300". Time is money and we can help within reason but we have had clients that pushed the limits beyond abnormal levels. We generally deal directly with other engineering companies but we try and stay accessible to the public. But on occasion we do get clients that buys the cheap circuit, wants us to develop his product with the promise of  1000x unit order... per month.... and then it never happens. So after 20 years I am saying no to that.
