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.

"One of the biggest challenges for me selling is educating customers that they can generate oxygen and nitrogen on their own for up to 90% savings versus getting trucked in deliveries," said Mike Montesi of On Site Gas Systems. "It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
