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.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”
