Reading time ( words)

The Excellon 136L Intelli-Drill System with a large work area of 30 by 36 inches and fast, accurate axis positioning via linear motor technology, makes quick work of large panel prototype as well as production PCBs. The Intelli-Drill vision system provides capabilities such as post lamination tooling optimization, drilling/routing relative to surface targets and features ensuring high accuracy and precise hole placement.

“The 136L Intelli-Drill strengthens our manufacturing capabilities particularly related to small hole drilling, registration and tighter tolerances,” said Stephen Garcia, President, Bay Area Circuits. “Our investment in the 136L will improve production efficiency and ultimately allow us to create additional value for our customers.”

Mike Sparidaens, Vice President of Sales at Excellon, shared his comments: “Excellon has partnered with Bay Area Circuits since the 1970's. We look forward to the implementation of the 136L Intelli-Drill System and being a part of Bay Area Circuit's high technology facility for years to come.”
