This is Sylvac #10

« Since June 2020, we have all returned to almost normal life in China after COVID-19, and economic activity is in full swing inside the country. »

Nicolas Réau is in charge of a team at Sylvac responsible for pre-assembly of subassemblies and purchasing plastic and electronic components on site.

Life has returned to its usual course in China, except for international travel. « China still filters a lot of entries into its territory, but apart from that we live normally. We were able to keep the 30 or so Sylvac employees even during the COVID-19 crisis. We just gave up overtime during this period. Since the beginning of 2021 it has even become very dynamic again and we are running at full capacity.»

While the health and economic situation in Europe is still recovering, the pandemic in China is no longer an issue. «There are almost no more cases, the few infected people arrive from abroad and are immediately quarantined. Here the will has not been to slow down the virus or avoid a second wave, but to eliminate it radically.»

The concepts of confinement or wearing a mask have had an impact in China equal to their severity: 3 weeks of confinement with an absolute ban on leaving the house and a total halt to activity, tracking of movements and compulsory wearing of a mask all day have all contributed to preventing the spread of the virus throughout the country. Of course, the most affected regions had to face the hardest measures.

At Sylvac Wujiang, where people remained very cautious throughout 2020, Nicolas Réau now sees the end of the tunnel: « As in the US and Europe, China is now vaccinating the population very quickly in order to reopen to international visitors without taking the risk of seeing the epidemic start again. The situation is under control and the economic outlook is good: morale is therefore high.»

"Experts in connected metrology", the slogan that rings true

A recent survey of a panel of Sylvac customers showed that the three main elements that differentiate us from our competitors are, in order: connectivity, innovation and service.

This survey reinforces our strategy, particularly with regard to the multiple connection possibilities offered by our instruments, whether contact or contactless. The emergence of Industry 4.0 and the "all connected" are undoubtedly not unrelated. Did you know, for example, that some of our comparators even offer 3 different ways to connect them? They can communicate via Bluetooth, via a Proximity type cable and via a Power type cable, which has the particularity of both transmitting data and powering the instrument, which then operates without batteries.

This last solution is often preferred when the instrument is difficult to access; not having to worry about replacing the battery is becoming an essential argument. Do not hesitate to ask us for advice for all your instrument connection projects.

Sylvac gets higher

Our new Z5 measuring column, resulting from a partnership with Trimos, the world leader in this type of vertical instrument, is a concentrate of know-how accumulated over 40 years. With a measuring capacity of 700 mm, this instrument is equipped with a revolutionary crank handle that allows the user to choose the mode of movement of the measuring carriage, either manual or motorized. The easy-to-read display and intuitive functions provide exceptional ease of use, but that's not all; the Z5's design with side-mounted key holders allows measurement with long, sturdy keys while ensuring excellent repeatability, making it the essential workshop column! The column is also compatible with our Sylcom software.
