NASHUA, N.H. The annual SMT VISION Awards program celebrates exceptional services and products introduced between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2006. The deadline to submit for award consideration is December 1, 2006.
The awards comprise 18 categories from assembly tools to testing, and other areas such as environmentally friendly products and services. Companies must submit a single, complete entry form for each product or service and for each category entered.
