Novator to provide Orbital Drilling equipment for Boeing South Carolina

Boeing has placed an order for portable Orbital Drilling equipment for it s production operations in North Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

“After a successful implementation in Everett, we are very happy that Boeing has decided to move forward with the North Charleston plant as well.” says Hans-Petter Andersson, Novator's CEO “We take that as proof of the value our technology brings into Boeing's production. Naturally, we are very excited to get started with this project.”

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.
