Saturn Electronics Installs New Micronic Drill Machine

Reading time ( words)

Saturn Electronics Corporation, a manufacturer of advanced bare printed circuit boards, received and installed a new 4-spindle Micronic 86 Drilling Machine, which is being sold and serviced in North America by Calteks, LLC.

“Saturn’s multilayer business has more than doubled in the past year and now accounts for a majority of domestic production”, said Yash Sutariya, VP of SEC. “To support this change in product mix we purchased a new high speed drill from Micronic. As time and funds allow, we plan on migrating towards these higher speed drills throughout our entire drill department."

"In addition, Saturn fronted the R&D costs to develop Micronic's first all-new production router in more than 15 years, added Sutariya. The experiment was a success. The new design offers 2x throughput on standard rectangular outlines, and 3x output on complex outlines. “Saturn is in negotiations to issue a blanket PO to replace the entire fab department with this new style machine.”

“We’re extremely pleased with the performance and reliability of this latest generation equipment from Micronic”, notes Randy Cook, President of Calteks, LLC. “Despite market conditions in North America, the value proposition provided by Mania has allowed us to sell and install four machines in our first year and we have great expectations for the years to come.”

Day 2 of the EIPC Winter Conference at the Groupama Stadium in the Décines-Charpieu region of the Metropolis of Lyon in eastern France included a privileged visit to the Bugey Nuclear Power Plant for those who were registered and passed their security clearance. Such was the interest that the party was split into morning and afternoon groups. EIPC board member Martyn Gaudion, CEO of Polar Instruments, made a fine job of moderating Session 6 twice over.

The EIPC Winter Conference returned to the Metropolis of Lyon in eastern France this month. In 2018, the venue was Villeurbanne in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. Five years later the setting was the Groupama Stadium in Décines-Charpieu, and leaders of the European printed circuit community gathered in expectation of a spectacular programme of 16 presentations, a visit to a nuclear power station, and an invaluable networking opportunity. They weren’t disappointed.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

03/18/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
This week seems jam-packed with holidays, both major and minor, doesn’t it? We started with “International Pi Day” on March 14. With all the obligatory pricing specials on most all things “pie” here in the U.S., suffice it to say, I’ve got a short stack bake-at-home pizza “pi” in my freezer, thanks to the one-day-only sales price of $3.14. Personally, I’m glad they didn’t make the promotional price = pizza diameter * Pi.
