3rd Annual DDM Novastar Open House a Success


Reading time ( words)

For the third consecutive year, DDM Novastar held its annual Technical Workshop and Open House on September 15-17, 2015 and was, by all measure, an enormous success.

The Technical Workshop was attended by customers from Canada, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, Virginia and as far away as Florida. Because the workshops have proven so worthwhile to customers, DDM Novastar has already scheduled their mid-winter workshop for February 9-10, 2016.

Participants were able see all of DDM Novastar's products first-hand in a single location, ask technical questions, meet the team that supports the equipment, and take a tour of the company's exclusive U.S. manufacturing and assembly facility.

The Open House featured hands-on equipment demonstrations including screen printers, pick & place machines, reflow ovens and selective solder machines, a custom reel-to-reel assembly line, and feeders, controls, and ancillary components.

Real Time with… SMTAI 2020: Technical Conference Review

10/06/2020 | Real Time with...SMTAI
SMTAI 2020, which was converted to a virtual event, took place from September 28–30. I attend every year, but since there was no keynote in the virtual format, I went straight to the technical conference. This event covered a broad range of topics related to everything in assembly. Over 90 technical presentations are available, but this report covers just some of the sessions I attended.

High-reliability, Low-temperature Solder Alloys

05/18/2020 | Dr. Pritha Choudhury, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
