Nova Drilling and Fabrication Services, established in 1977, is known today as one of the largest mechanical drilling and routing service providers in North America.  With the continued demand for laser microvias and precision laser milling, Nova decided the time was right to move forward with the investment in the two COBRA-II Hybrid UV and CO2 laser systems.

Mike Doherty, vice president of Nova explained, “In the last few years after moving to a new building in Milpitas, CA, it became evident the demand for laser work continued to increase and having the latest technology lasers was a top priority for the company.  The addition of two new COBRA-II lasers will allow for fast turnaround and high quality product to our customer base.  It is extremely exciting to have this flexibility at the shop and I look forward to showing off our new capabilities.”
