NPI/Prototype Services

API EMS is ready to help you convert your idea or design into proof of concept assemblies that can rapidly migrate into full-scale production. Our NPI/Prototype Department is organized as an autonomous group comprised of individual work cells that:

  • are ISO 9001:2008 certified
  • are IPC-A-610D Class II (production) and Class III (high reliability) certified
  • are IPC J-STD-001 certified
  • adhere to IPC and UL standards

This organizational structure allows us to streamline the build process and generate prototype assemblies for you in as little as 24 hours.

Immediate Feedback Improves Design

Our prototype line operators work directly with the API EMS engineers on your project and provide timely feedback regarding manufacturability and testability. This valuable information is used to guide design changes that can lower production costs, improve quality, and enhance performance.

API EMS's NPI/Prototype Department utilizes a wide variety of manual, semi-automated, and automated tools and equipment to aid in the rapid and accurate assembly of product prototypes. Zero-defect assembly allows engineers to focus on issues related to design rather than workmanship.

The people in our NPI/Prototype Department are highly skilled and dedicated to producing high quality!
