PAPI Grant Support for Sylatech’s Latest Capital Investment
Thanks to the help of grant funding via the Product and Process Innovation (PAPI) scheme, delivered by the University of York, we are delighted to announce our investment in the purchase of a large-bed Mitutoyo CMM (co-ordinate measuring machine).
This investment is enables a product innovation in our large slotted array antenna business and expands our offering to meet the growing demand in the space and radar markets. The CMM machine is the latest purchase within Sylatech’s capital investment programme and compliments the capability of our large-bed Datron MLCube CNC machining centre.
Sylatech has a proud heritage in the design, manufacture and testing of slotted flat plate antennas, which are typically manufactured from precision-machined aluminium components and dip brazed, resulting in a high-strength, lightweight assembly.
Robert Lowther, Sylatech’s Sales Director commented that “the increase in demand across our X, K and Ka band slotted antenna array business, for radar, fire control and space applications is fantastic. With this latest investment we anticipate further strong product development and growth”.
PAPI provides grants for equipment to develop new products or services and helps small to medium sized businesses across the York, North Yorkshire, East Riding, and the Leeds City Region.
