PDR announces that it was awarded a 2019 Global Technology Award in the category of Rework and Repair Equipment for its E6S Evolution Rework System. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 ceremony that took place during productronica in Munich, Germany.

Defense entities, contract manufacturers, research and telecom customers have identified PDR’s E6 technology as the system of choice for the machine’s ease of use, effective rework and flexibility to tackle a wide range of applications. Priced below fully automated systems, PDR’s simple design and easy to master rework systems are built to ensure that they are virtually maintenance free, offering years of useful service with many PDR systems built in the 1980s still in service.
