Jeff Hughes vice president of Hughes Circuits explained, “We have always been fans of the Excellon platform, and have been for years!  The products we produce require the utmost in quality and accuracy.  It made sense when deciding add to our capital equipment plan that we upgrade, and get the benefit of familiarity, and ease of use.  These machines are welcome additions to Hughes Circuits Inc.  Looking forward to the rewards the increased capacity will bring.”

Mike Sparidaens, vice president of sales at Excellon mentions, “The dual spindle HS-1L has brought much needed flexibility to drilling and fabrication departments. The HS-1L with both high-speed drill and drill/router spindles, complemented with a CCD Vision system, has been an all-around winner.  Product quality, speed and ease of use with CNC-7 have all been noted, and with such feedback, we know that we’re heading in the right direction with our new systems.  Furthermore, we are pleased that Hughes Circuits Inc. has chosen continued partnership with the Excellon team.”
