Promoting Atmanirbhar at IMTEX: Phillips Machine Tools to promote Precihole for Deep Hole Drilling Solutions

Jun 28, 2023

As IMTEX 2023 approaches, Phillips Machine Tools – a leading provider of manufacturing technology – is all set to launch its newest partnership with Precihole, a global leader in deep-hole drilling and finishing solutions. “We are honoured, excited and optimistic in equal measure to partner with Precihole and work together to strengthen the Atmanirbhar Bharat mission by aggressively taking Precihole solutions to all the markets that Phillips operates in globally,” said Terrence Miranda, Managing Director of Phillips Machine Tools.

“Our partnership aims to bring together the best of machine tool manufacturing and distribution on a common platform with the single goal of creating value for customers, resulting in leaps of productivity and prosperity, as well as a unique and enduring competitive advantage”, adds Mr Miranda. Phillips is a family-owned, leading global manufacturing services company, and this association will strengthen their vision towards promoting Make in India products in the Indian market as well as taking Indian manufacturers globally.

Deep hole drilling and finishing have an array of vital uses but are still considered very niche, high-tech applications. This is where Precihole’s expertise spanning over 3 decades is indispensable, with their range of deep hole drilling (micro, single, multi-axis, BTA, and ejector), hole finishing (skiving, burnishing, honing, reaming, and lapping) and special purpose machines, all of which have contributed to their excellent market share in this niche yet prolific sector.

With over 150 different application possibilities and counting, industries that are positioned to gain from this partnership include aerospace, automotive, die and mould, defence, energy, medical implants, hydraulic cylinders, instrumentation, heavy engineering, and more.

Parag Kulkarni, Director, Sales & Business Development at Precihole, adds, “Both Precihole and Phillips share common values, with a culture that resolves around integrity, commitment, and dedication to creating a competitive advantage for our customers that shines in everything we do.”

Precihole’s offerings are complemented by the Phillips customer base, which includes mould and die shops, tool rooms, aerospace, medical, oil and gas – all of which have immense potential for these drilling and finishing solutions. The Precihole-Phillips partnership, thus, seeks to unleash the manufacturing potential of Precihole to a large customer base through Phillips’s extensive sales, service and application network in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Middle East and beyond. Phillips’ localized distribution presence is known to provide its customers with an unparalleled sales experience, service offerings, and application assistance – all ultimately contributing to its commitment to providing the best value in the machine tool industry.

For the first time ever at IMTEX, their display will feature a Precihole single-axis gun drilling machine, which is most widely used for orthopaedic implants – a key segment for the partnering companies. Precihole will also be present at Hall 2A, Booth B104 with a range of specialized solutions that cater to over 20 industries. This means Phillips customers will have access to Precihole’s experts during the event, so they can gain invaluable insights on deep hole drilling and finishing, which is a highly technical and specialized process.
