Founded in 1968, Automated Production Equipment (A.P.E.) introduced rework and repair equipment to a growing worldwide electronics community. Now, more than 40 years later, the industry has changed beyond recognition. Denser packaging, RF shields, flex circuits, CSP’s / uBGA’s plastic odd forms, area array packages, pin grid arrays, ceramic chips, and the constant demand for greater throughput, have pushed rework equipment to new standards. APE has met and surpassed these standards for the past 15 years with our patented thermal convection rework systems. Our unique technology uses high power and low temperature to reproduce precisely the original manufacturing process.
