50 PCB007 MAGAZINE I OCTOBER 2018 Feature interview by Patty Goldman I-CONNECT007 While at GreenSource Fabrication, Burkle Automation Technology's Dave Howard intro- duced me to the Schmoll equipment as well as other items that Burkle installed at the fa- cility. One unit of great interest was the Impex inspection machine which can do sophisticat- ed non-destructive cross-sections using a very fine fiber probe. We then enjoyed a discussion while touring the line, which is excerpted here. Also present at times and adding to our techni- cal discussion were one Burkle engineer, Evan Howard, and two Schmoll application engi- neers, Jens Baensch and James Verheul. Patty Goldman: Dave, tell me a little bit about your background. Dave Howard: I'm originally from England. Many years ago, I was brought over to the U.S. by the company that I worked for at the time, and I've been here ever since. I am now with Burkle America and in addition to Burkle Lam- ination Presses we also represent the Schmoll drills and other equipment. Goldman: We are standing in front of the 16 sin- gle-spindle drills lined up in two rows facing each other (Figure 1). Howard: Yes, these single-spindle drills have lots of bells and whistles on them including linear motors in all axes, high-speed spindles, precision depth control, and automatic loaders.
