Electronetics, a division of Northwest Center, Showcases Custom Magnetic Solutions at APEC 2018 (Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition)
Our team had a productive week attending APEC 2018 – The Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition – on March 4-8 in San Antonio, TX. As first-time exhibitors, we were immediately engaged by the variety of activities and professional training sessions made available to attendees.
On the exposition floor, we had a wonderful time meeting with customers, strengthening partnerships, showing off our capabilities, and checking out the competition. Our booth, which was strategically located next to the food and beverage area, was fully decked out with new signage, a variety of sample parts, fun giveaways, and, of course, free candy bars.
During the event, we spoke with many visitors who were thrilled to learn that our parts are designed and manufactured in the USA. For customers seeking the highest precision and quality control, it was clear that Electronetics, LLC was the manufacturer of choice. Our team also shared information about our new ISO certifications, updated testing equipment, and recently upgraded manufacturing facility.
“We had an exciting time at APEC 2018 – the seminars and rap sessions were cutting edge, there were a wide variety of booths and exhibitors, and I always very much enjoy meeting our customers and partners in person; we’re already signed up for next year’s conference,” says Senior Design Engineer, Doug Eaton.
Our engineering team participated in a range of seminars and breakout sessions which included: High Frequency Magnetics - Winding Design, Modeling & Simulation, and Topologies and Control. We also attended the PSMA Magnetics Committee meeting.
APEC was not just a designer’s conference, it had something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics manufacturing. Our team felt it was an enlightening experience and we’re looking forward to attending next year’s conference in Anaheim, CA.
