6 Reasons Why You Should Visit API’s Booth at APEC 2014!

by Jaymie Murray 11. March 2014 09:55

At this year’s Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), taking place March 17-19 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX, API will be showcasing our Power Systems and Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions (EIS) product lines at booth #1133.  With hundreds of exhibitors to visit, seminars to attend, and social events to check out, why should you take the time to stop by our booth?  Here are some very compelling reasons why a trip to API’s booth should be on your APEC to-do list:

  1. The 380 VDC Rack Mount Power Strip. These energy efficient power strips have a slim 0U design which allows them to be mounted either vertically or horizontally, saving valuable rack space.
  2. Win a brand new iPad Air!  Just leave your business card when you visit our booth and you'll be entered to win!
  3. EMI Filtering Products. These products help customers meet MIL-STD-461 requirements and include extensive signal and power integrity solutions, custom magnetics, and ceramic capacitors. 
  4. API’s Subject Matter Experts.  The Power and EIS teams will be on hand to talk product, functionality, and how we can provide the very best solution to fit your needs.
  5. Film Capacitors & DC Links. Designed to achieve maximum capacitance density under harsh operating conditions, API’s DC link capacitors are manufactured using segmented, self-healing metallized polypropylene and are ideal for power inverter applications that require superior life expectancy.
  6. Free blinking pens!  Free pens are good, but free BLINKING pens are even better!

See you in Fort Worth!

API Facility Spotlight: Dongguan, China

by Jaymie Murray 30. January 2014 13:48

As a leading provider of high reliability products to nearly 3000 customers worldwide, API has established a strong international presence to better serve our diverse, international customer base. This includes offering a number of manufacturing options to produce the high quality and cost effective products customers demand. One such facility is located in Dongguan, a manufacturing hub in southeastern China.

This ISO-9001: 2008 certified facility and its employees manufacture a wide range of Power and EIS products, and Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) for commercial, industrial, and medical customers.  Selected products include filtered connectors, power filters, AC and DC power distribution units, cables, and electronic sub-assemblies.  The quality of these products is reflected in the facility’s consistently met return rate goal, which has remained under 0.5% for the past 3 years.   The 6S lean manufacturing facility has also received and maintains a China Customs A level qualification.

Despite its distance from other API facilities, there is very little difference between the Dongguan facility and those located in the US.  Procedures, equipment, and systems are consistent across all company operations worldwide.  China-based team members actively communicate and collaborate with their US and European counterparts. Many visitors from other API locations are surprised by just how much the facility resembles their own.  This ensures a seamless delivery of products to customers that are indistinguishable from those manufactured domestically.

All API locations worldwide are held to the same high API standards. The combination of strong local management and careful oversight by the corporate leaders ensures that all processes and systems are operating at the highest and most efficient level possible.   This attention to detail coupled with the inherent savings afforded by offshore manufacturing enables API to consistently deliver high-quality, on-time, price-competitive products to our customers, no matter where they are located.
