DDM Novastar Open House A Big Success!

Sep 24, 2013

DDM Novastar, a U.S. manufacturer of SMT and PCB assembly equipment, was delighted at the turnout and enthusiasm expressed by participants to its first ever Open House, held from September 11 through 13, 2013. The goal was to bring together customers, potential customers, business partners, employees and their families to educate participants on DDM Novastar's product line and to celebrate the company's first anniversary in its new manufacturing facilities. By all accounts, it was a huge success.

On the first day, DDM Novastar invited its channel partners, reps and select customers to participate in an all-day technical workshop to introduce them to the design, operation and maintenance of the company's product line.

During the second and third days, DDM Novastar conducted hands-on equipment demonstrations on the following machines:

  • Screen Printers
  • Pick & Place Machines
  • Selective Soldering, including the new InterSelect Model IS 335
  • Reflow Ovens, including the new 5-zone Model GF-125

On Thursday, guests were treated to a fabulous barbecue featuring a light lunch of burgers and hot dogs, followed by – literally – the whole hog at the main event of the evening. Interested parties who were unable to attend are encouraged to contact Bob Voigt, Vice President, Global Sales, at, to schedule a visit for a personal tour of the facilities and product demonstrations of their choice.

DDM Novastar, Inc, was established in 2011, following the close of APS Novastar, LLC, formerly of Huntingdon Valley, PA. Many of the key staff from APS were hired by DDM Novastar to continue the legacy started by APS in 1981. DDM Novastar continues in their footsteps as the global leader in the design, development, and manufacture of OEM equipment for the short to medium run surface mount technology (SMT) and printed circuit board (PCB) markets.

DDM Novastar's products include stencil printers, automated pick and place robots, reflow ovens, wave and selective solder equipment, component counters and lead forming equipment.  DDM Novastar's experienced team has installed over 24,000 product solutions in the telecom, defense and aerospace, security, transportation, automotive, medical and diagnostic devices, personal computers, and academic markets.  For more information, visit or call +1.610.337.3050.
