Sypris Awarded Contract Extension With Major Customer

Reading time ( words)

Sypris Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc., announced that it has entered into an agreement to extend its long-term contract with a leading commercial vehicle manufacturer (OEM). The new contract continues our existing product lines and includes the award of two additional axle shaft model lines to be produced by Sypris beginning in 2021 and the use of certain Sypris Ultra series axle shaft design features on an existing model line supplied by Sypris for the OEM.

The patented Sypris Ultra series lightweight axle shaft reduces the weight of the drive axle assemblies by an estimated 16 pounds for the typical Class 8 commercial vehicle. This important weight savings is believed to contribute to shorter braking distances and greater fuel efficiency for the fleet owner. It is also believed that by reducing the weight of these shafts, more horsepower may be transferred to the pavement, thereby further enhancing the performance of the vehicle.

Commenting on the announcement, Paul Larochelle, Vice President and General Manager, stated, “We are pleased to expand and extend our strategic relationship with the OEM and its family of companies. It is a global leader in the commercial vehicle industry and we are proud that certain of the patented Sypris Ultra series design features will provide it with important competitive and performance advantages in the marketplace for years to come.”

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Overcoming Component Selection and Sourcing Challenges

Most PCB designers know precisely how Captain James T. Kirk felt because we often feel the same way when starting a new design. We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
