Boeing places order for orbital drilling equipment for 787 Dreamliner final assembly

The Boeing Company has placed an additional order for portable Orbital Drilling equipment for the Final Assembly Line of the 787 Dreamliner in Everett, USA.

"This order is of major importance for us, as it shows that Boeing continues to see great value in using Orbital Drilling in their production," says Hans-Petter Andersson, Novator ?s CEO. "Boeing sets the bar high in everything they do and require the highest quality and service from their suppliers. Hence, we are very glad that they selected us again to deliver such critical equipment. "

The Orbital Portable M-Series is based on Novator's patented Orbital DrillingTM technique that enables drilling of holes with high quality and finish while reducing the machine inventory and the cutting times. Orbital DrillingTM is a drilling technique where the cutter is revolving in a mechanically forced eccentric movement while simultaneously rotating around its own axis. In Orbital DrillingTM, the thrust force is very low which results in higher hole quality and is one of the factors that opens up for dry drilling. Dry drilling makes coolant obsolete and reduces environmental and health hazards.
