Brigitflex Invests in New Excellon Drilling/Routing System

Reading time ( words)

Excellon announces the installation of a model 154L vision drill/routing system at Brigitflex, Inc. of Elgin, Illinois, U.S.A.

The Excellon 154L vision drill/routing system offers high speed axis positioning via linear motor technology making quick work of large panel PCB’s up to 54 by 30 inches. The vision system provides capabilities such as drilling/routing relative to surface targets and features ensuring high accuracy and precise hole placement. This capability is especially important when working with thin materials, kapton, microwave and teflon substrates, that grow or shrink during the manufacturing process. The 154L is equipped with tight tolerance depth to +/- 0.0005 inches to enable accurate counter bore, counter sink and blind via drilling. The CNC-7PC control provides backward compatibility with earlier Excellon systems.

Brigitte Lawrence, president, relayed: “Brigitflex has paid attention to its customer base. We are always experimenting with new materials and upgrades for the ever-changing world we are part of. With the addition of the 154L we will not only have greater technical capability but we significantly increase our capacity for your needs now and in the future. Please give us call for your concepts, proto into production printed circuit boards. We can work with all materials plus thin film lamination in house. We work with a 60-inch-wide etcher. We can think outside the box!”

Mike Sparidaens, vice president of sales at Excellon, shared his comments: “Excellon welcomes Brigitflex into the next generation of drilling and fabrication with the new 154L drill router system.  We look forward to further developing our partnership and many years of success.”
