FTG Adds New Drilling Equipment to Meet Demand

Reading time ( words)

FTG Circuits has purchased new drilling equipment from Via Mechanics (USA) Inc. to keep pace with increased production demands at the company's Toronto facility. The ND-6Y220E is a six-station drilling machine equipped with 160K air bearing spindles. The machine features blind hole depth control of +/-0.015 mm among other industry leading features. It will allow FTG to stay ahead of advanced technology drilling demands while also increasing production throughput in their drilling department.

Hardeep Heer, chief technology officer at FTG Circuits, said, “We chose to partner with Via Mechanics (USA) because of their track record for providing high technology quality equipment with superior service and support. This purchase demonstrates our continued commitment to invest in advanced technology and adapt to the changing demands of our industry.”

Jeff Brandman, president of TFE who is the Via Mechanics (USA) Representative in Canada, adds, “FTG and Via Mechanics (USA) are both leaders and developers of new technologies. It’s a natural fit when two firms come together to leverage each others core competencies. We see this as a huge step toward FTG moving to a Via Mechanics (USA) platform.”
