Reading time ( words)

IMI, Inc. announced today that they have acquired a Schmoll Modul Single Spindle drilling machine. This sophisticated drilling system will add to IMI’s capability and will enable IMI to continue to offer world-class drilling registration on higher layer count product as well as when fabricating on demanding PTFE laminates.

The Modul has upgraded spindle and a CCD micro focus camera system to enable tighter and more precise registration even when drilling the tightest tolerances anywhere on the panel or within the circuitry.

Peter Bigelow, President & CEO commented, “The addition of this state-of-the art Drilling system will allow IMI to produce even higher technology product significantly faster than with our current technology. We chose this Schmoll system because of its solid track record and user friendliness, which assure our being able to continue to support the requirements, of our world-class customers faster and more efficiently.”
