Saturn's New Mania Micronic 86 Drilling Machine 
Six-Spindle PCB-drilling high precision machine 

The Micronics 86 runs a positive electrical charge into the panel during drilling and the drill spindle runs a negative charge. Once the drill bit makes contact with the panel surface the PLC begins measuring the depth that the drill bit travels into the panel. This system is capable of depth control to within +/- 0.5 mils, making this mechanical drill a very cost effective alternative to laser drilling (which we also offer). We will be using this enhanced capability to further out HDI Blind Microvia development program, which we expect to begin offering commercially in Q2 2009.
