Rework & Troubleshooting

Sometimes the rework of existing PCB assemblies is necessary to fix a design flaw, upgrade an assembly with new components, or it is simply a cost-effective solution to building from scratch. API’s rework specialists assure that the resulting PCBs and assemblies meet the highest quality standards.

Ball Grid Array Troubleshooting / Re-work
For companies experiencing problems with competitor-made components, Ball Grid Array (BGA) Troubleshooting and re-work offers a highly cost effective method to repair “dead” boards or eliminate bone piles. 

Re-Ball Specialists
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
