DDM's USA Fabrication Shop
When you purchase a precision SMT assembly machine, you can expect it to deliver precise positioning and perfect pitch, not just for the short term, but for decades. At DDM, we believe that a rugged support structure provides more stability and requires less calibration, so you can make perfect parts without worrying about constant adjustments.
Our metal fabrication shop features a full complement of metal shearing, braking and welding stations, because we want our equipment to be made to last and operate flawlessly. A fully welded frame is more stable than a bolted structure, making recalibration virtually unnecessary.
We also design and manufacture almost all of our own circuit boards, so you're never reliant on third-party vendors to keep up with demand or to replace an older model customer board.
And because we know you can't wait for the next spare parts shipment to arrive from Asia, like our competitors do, we stock spare parts for every machine we've ever built since 1983.
Diversified Design and Manufacturing, a privately held company specializing in design and development of custom automation machinery and equipment, purchased the assets of APS Novastar in 2011, after they closed down. Diversified's nickname, DDM, became the cornerstone for the new company name - DDM Novastar. With its extensive knowledge of hydraulics, pneumatics, motion control, servo systems, machine vision systems, PLC and PC integration, Diversified Design and Manufacturing is the perfect complement to the skills of DDM Novastar.
At DDM, we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, and to understand how to operate and care for your machine. We provide a total solution, including training on processes, materials, equipment and implementation, so our customers can focus on getting the job done.
