Leveraging Your Investment in Design and Materials

In many cases, rework is necessary to fix a design flaw or upgrade an assembly with new components. API EMS utilizes state-of-the-art semi-automated equipment, such as the Onyx Selective Soldering and SRT 1100 Rework Systems, to accurately remove and replace components including BGAs.

In other cases, rework is a cost-effective alternative to building from scratch. Often, it is the best way to recover and reuse materials, which can make up 95% of the cost of your product.

When you have API EMS rework your product, you can be assured that the resulting PCBs and assemblies will meet the highest quality standards.
