We are delighted to announce that Justyna Mikolajczyk, our veteran electronics assembler at our Cambridge, UK facility, recently won the UK Solderer of the Year Award for a second time. Justyna, from Celera Motion/Zettlex (UK) represented Novanta again at the Hand Soldering World Championship in November 2022 at electronica, in Munich, Germany.
In conjunction with electronica 2022, IPC hosted its popular IPC Hand Soldering Competition World Championship in Munich, Germany November 15, 2022, welcoming 10 competitors from across the globe.
Skilled contestants competed to build an assembly in accordance with IPC-A-610 – Class 3 criteria, and were judged on the functionality of the assembly, compliance with the assembly process, and overall product quality. Contestants were allowed a maximum of one hour to complete the process.
Although she did not finish on the podium this time, congratulations to Justyna for representing Novanta and finishing a very honorable 4thplace. We are very proud of her achievements and hope to see her win in 2023!
