The innovative system is based on the capacity to do drilling, end milling, reaming and countersinking in one-shot operation, guarantying high quality standard, as required by the aerospace sector. The benefits for the customer are time savings and cheaper hole cost, as well as higher performance and quality standards, by meeting the tight requirements of the industry. The company is seeking for enterprises or companies interested in this specific technology, in order to sign a services agreement, with the goal to expand their abroad market.
