APEX Technology expertise integrates many disciplines, such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and environmental engineering, involved in connector design and manufacturing. There is a synergy between the “pure sciences” of contact physics and failure analysis, and the physical aspects of material selection, plating, and lubrication.
This section describes a number of areas, such as contact physics, connector plating, connector lubrication, and connector failure analysis that constitute the basic technology of the design and manufacture of electromechanical components and devices.
Technology must work hand in hand with all design and manufacturing disciplines, in order to provide the most robust product at the lowest cost for each application. Technology must also consider the many global environmental and occupational health and safety regulations, which restrict the use of hazardous materials.
