Pho-Tronics, Wisconsin, has recently announced that they purchased a Posalux Ultra Speed PCB drilling machine to expand capabilities and to further improve productivity. A second will follow later this year as part of their capital investment program and Technology Roadmap.

“We needed a new system with an extensive tool diameter range and high end technology options. With the Ultra Speed investment we extend our portfolio with our existing Aero Space and Medical customer base so that we can open up to new markets. During the last year we scanned the equipment market, tested and decided to qualify the Ultra Speed machine”, commented Paul Godbout, President of the Milwaukee site. “We needed higher productivity to meet customer needs. It can be accurately drilled with less set up time, with an optimum cutting speed and our tool wear is minimized. With Posalux we have the equipment and support we need plus a competent and innovative partner”.
