New Product Introductions (NPI)
API offers rapid prototyping services, incorporating the hands-on service of a small EMS vendor with the engineering expertise of a large, established firm.
Unique Customer Service Model
API assigns a skilled technician to oversee each project from initiation to completion (design, production, incoming inspection, and shipping). This eliminates confusion and ensures that each project is given ample attention and is completed successfully.
With Certified Six Sigma Greenbelts, 5S training, and an average tenure of over onedecade of service, API employees are second to none.
Prediction & Elimination of Problems
API leverages state-of-the-art software to render a virtual board build. In a matter of minutes, API can spot engineering mistakes, check electrical clearances, review it against standards, check component sizes, and much more. This detects and corrects errors before manufacturing begins, thus saving customers time and money.
Due to the ruggedized nature of military products, lead is a major component in EMS manufacturing. Recent environmental restrictions regarding the use of lead in products means that many small parts in military-grade components must be replaced. API Technologies is one of the few EMS organizations to offer re-balling of ball grid assemblies.
