“This order is another milestone for us, and we are very happy that Bombardier has chosen us as a supplier of drilling tools for such an important project as the CSeries aircraft and for such an important application as the wing-to-body join” says Hans-Petter Anderson, Novator’s CEO. “This shows that airplane manufacturers see great benefit in using our technology, especially when it comes to difficult-to-drill applications.”
The CSeries commercial airliners are Bombardier’s all-new, single-aisle family of aircraft, designed for the
100- to 149-seat market segment.
The Orbital Portable M-Series is based on Novator's patented Orbital Drilling™ technique that enables drilling of holes with high quality and finish while reducing the machine inventory and the cutting times. Orbital DrillingTM is a totally new drilling technique where the cutter is revolving in a mechanically forced eccentric movement while simultaneously rotating around its own axis. In orbital drilling, the thrust force is very low which results in higher hole quality and is one of the factors that facilitates dry drilling. Dry drilling makes coolant obsolete and reduces environmental impact.
Novator is a high-tech engineering company focused on providing efficient drilling solutions based on, but not limited to, the patented Orbital DrillingTM technology. Novator’s Orbital DrillingTM technology is designed to meet tomorrow’s production requirements for customers working with advanced and complex materials, mainly within the aerospace industry. The Orbital DrillingTM technology enables companies to significantly improve quality and productivity while cutting production costs. The main driving force behind using Orbital DrillingTM is the introduction of new, advanced materials such as carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), and titanium, challenging materials to drill into for many companies today. Novator holds a number of patents around the world that are directly related to Orbital DrillingTM and hole production. Patents relate to methodology, equipment and accessories. Novator’s headquarters is in Stockholm, Sweden.
