In August ’12, GYTI announced the launch of its first commercial gyrotron installation and stated that the customer was expected initially to develop and perfect production techniques for a range of products using the gyrotron and a new production line the customer has developed and built. The customer has informed GYTI that it intends to place the gyrotron and the new production line into regular commercial use by 1/1/14, which will produce a royalty stream for GYTI. The customer also informed GYTI that it intends to initiate additional projects with GYTI, and that the operating division using the gyrotron is requesting budget allocation for additional gyrotron based production lines for the same product category for ’14.
In July ’13 GYTI announced that, while doing feasibility testing for a major consumer products company, GYTI successfully demonstrated its ability to cure specialized plastic foam to customer specifications in a fraction of the time, and using a fraction of the energy, required by conventional technology. GYTI successfully completed this $45,000 feasibility study in the 3rd quarter, and the customer has commenced negotiations for a licensing agreement with GYTI.
