Rochester, NY -
PGM was awarded its second contract for the manufacture of high
speed WIFI antennas to be used on military and commercial aircraft. In 2014, PGM
began the manufacturing and development of the new state of the art system. Its
customer had designed a very complex system that required highly complex
machining and assembly. PGM was chosen because of our abilities to meet very
complex tolerances in a production setting.
“We wanted to make sure the first part made was exactly like the middle
and last part made. This repeatability and reliability in the production
setting is what separates us from our competition” Todd Hockenberger VP of PGM.
The benefits were huge for the consumer. The speeds are
extremely fast and allow passengers to surf the net and stream video at very
high rates of speed. Older versions
cannot stream and often lose conductivity.
Due to the success
of the system, PGM and its customer expect this to grow over the next several
years. PGM expects this system will be
around for 5 to 7 years.
