Proven Solutions

At Apex Factory Automation (ApexFA), your peace of mind is our commitment. With more than 20 years of experience providing services and products its clients rely on to meet their demanding requirements, ApexFA is an exclusive partner with and distributor for the products below for the United States, Canada, and Mexico.


Surface Mount Technology (SMT) means more than pick-and-place machines. It is the foundation of your business, and its quality and reliability is mission critical. Mirae has more than 4000 pick-and-place machines installed worldwide and more than 800 registered patents on the technology used in this equipment. While providing exceptional speed (up to 42,000 CPH), reliability (utilizing Linear Motors), accuracy (Vision Inspection System using multiple cameras), and intuitive (easy-to-use) software, Mirae continues to innovate, refine and enhance its equipment to deliver exceptional quality and return on investment.

To provide our clients a modular system designed and built for growth, we offer Nordson-DIMA line of vision pick-and-place machines which provide 4,500 CPH placement combined with latest technologies in CAN Bus interface, Linear encoding positioning system, CCD camera vision for Fiducial recognition and component alignment, intelligent feeders, and fully configurable Windows® based software. 

Screen Printers and Board Handling

Apex also represents SJ InnoTech line of SMT Screen Printers and board handling equipment. SJ, in the last 5 years, has installed more than 1200 units of their current printer line worldwide. SJ’s commitment to quality is evidenced by their On-Board 3D Solder Paste Inspection, with True Closed Loop Controls. SJ has been correspondingly recognized by regional and national business best practice awards including the prestigious Top Star Company award and the Best SME Award.

Reflow Ovens

To round out the production line, Apex offers different Oven solutions to address the full range of production requirements. The Nordson-DIMA reflow ovens offer excellent capability to handle the prototype and low volume output of the DIMA pick and place machines, whereas our well known Heller Industries and TSM ovens will handle the higher volume requirements when sold in line with our higher speed Mirae pick and place equipment.

TSM enjoys global accounts with Samsung Electronics, Daesung Electric, LG and Tyco. Since 1999, TSM entered a “white label” agreement with Samsung to market its line throughout Asia, Europe and worldwide. It has over 1,000 ovens installed globally.

Heller Industries pioneered reflow convection soldering in the 1980’s and has since demonstrated leadership in manufacturing (ISO 9001), innovation (2013 Best Product Awards), and service (2014 Service Excellence Award for Soldering Equipment).


Apex offer exceptional quality and proven X-ray inspection technology manufactured by its partner Xavis Co. LTD.  Xavis  X-ray inspection systems leverage innovative design, proprietary software and reliable Closed (A Series) and Open (H Series) tubes to deliver exception quality images for the most demanding environment.  The Xavis A-Series platform is ideal for typical SMT manufacturers who want to be able to X-Ray PCBs for hidden defects such as Head-In-Pillow on BGAs, barrel fill for PTH/THT components, voids in cooling plates/heatsinks, and solder joints under QFN packages, and the H-Series allows non-destructive, full CT analysis on a larger range of PCBs and parts, utilizing a sophisticated 7 axis manipulator. It utilizes Oblique CT to achieve class-leading 3D images, and can view sub micron images utilizing a super high resolution 5” FPD co-developed by Xavis.
