Only some SYIL owners have as broad a market base as GT Scientific, founded in 2017 by Grant Takara on the island of Hawaii.
With his products reaching all corners of the earth, you can see why we are proud to have GT Scientific as one of our customers.
"In 2019, I was in search of a brand new low maintenance machine that could fit in my one parking stall sized shop, was under 4,000 lbs (out of concern for my concrete floors), ran off of single-phase power, had absolute position servos, accepted tooling with pull studs, a reliable ATC, on-screen graphics, metal way covers, a powerful coolant pump, and a robust enclosure all for under 35k USD delivered to my door.
The SYIL X7 delivered all those and has made scaling my business possible. The SYIL delivers quality at an affordable price and industrial controls in a compact package, perfect for my needs. Since receiving the machine, I've only seen the machine design continually improve to epoxy granite castings, nicer sheet metal enclosure, more spindle power, and an even more compact footprint. SYIL is hungry to capture the market of individuals who want a compact industrial ready-to-run machine with high reliability."
At the time of writing in 2021, the machine has completed approximately (1400) hours of work with no mechanical or electrical failures. This, of course, is a testament to the SYIL X7's build quality and the care Grant takes of his small CNC machine.
If you follow @GTScientific, you will see that the company is expanding in its capability to cater to its products and to serve its customers better. We at SYIL are proud to have been a crucial part of your success, Grant!
