Printech Case Study

Deployable Satellite Antennas



Project Value

For over 40 years Printech Circuit Laboratories (PCL) has been manufacturing specialist circuitry and associated products for a wide variety of customers, including but not restricted to Aerospace, Defence, Medical, Motorsport, RF and Microwave communication.

Customer Challenge

Printech required mechanical design software with which to design deployable satellite antennas which would operate effectively in orbit.
It was crucial for Printech to be equipped with a software package that would enable clear communication of the designs internally.

The Majenta Solution

It was concluded that CATIA V5 would be the optimum software solution. Printech staff had some familiarity with this product, allowing them to hit the ground running. CATIA V5 is well suited to projects with expanding needs, allowing additional packages (such as thermal analysis) to be added with ease.

Business Impact

Printech is now better equipped for good progress – and clear communications of designs – on complex projects.
As CATIA V5 is widely used in aerospace and other industries, use of this package future-proofs Printech’s ability to expand in and work with a range of industries in a changing climate.

The process has been straightforward. Majenta were able to advise on the optimum software configurations both in the short term and for our future plans and expansion, including the future adoption of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
