APC International, Ltd. is a leading global supplier of piezoelectric ceramic shapes, piezoelectric transducers, piezo devices, and piezo application support services. Since 1986, APC has been recognized for providing value to its customers by manufacturing high-quality custom piezo products and delivering a superior level of customer service.
APC’s piezo products include: piezoelectric ceramics in standard and custom shapes, piezoelectric materials (PZT materials), stack actuators, ultrasonic air transducers, piezo nebulizers, piezo buzzers, piezo disc benders, bending actuators, piezo ignitors, ultrasonic cleaning transducers, piezo sensors, and custom transducers.
APC offers five proprietary piezo materials: APC 840, APC 841, APC 850, APC 855, and APC 880. APC’s materials are manufactured in the United Sates and are recognized by our customers for their quality and consistency. APC's recently opened lead zirconate titanate powder manufacturing facility enables APC's team of materials scientists to develop additional piezo powders for specific customer applications.
APC’s experienced team of application engineers works with our customers to develop innovative solutions and provide application support for their piezo systems. APC’s piezo design and application support services include: materials development, transducer design, piezo sensor development, and piezo systems optimization.
APC International excels at meeting its customer’s precise custom requirements for piezoelectric ceramics. APC’s manufacturing capabilities include an in-house machine shop, design and application of custom electrode patterns, and advanced electrical testing. APC’s manufacturing staff enjoys the challenge of manufacturing unique piezo shapes and piezo shapes with tight electrical or dimensional tolerances.
APC’s in-house assembly & contract manufacturing services, including soldering, bonding, and transducer assembly, provide APCs customers with ready to use piezo devices. Customers who have used APC’s in-house assembly & contract manufacturing services have saved countless hours and reduced their assembly costs.
APC’s shear mode piezoelectric elements are used by many of our customers who require a piezoelectric ceramic with greater sensitivity. APC’s composite materials provide improved resolution for many sonar and medical ultrasound applications.
APC supplies piezoelectric ceramics and piezo devices for a wide range of applications including: flow sensors, level sensors, accelerometers, proximity sensors, ultrasonic medical transducers, and non-destructive testing.
APC supplies many Fortune 500 companies with cutting edge piezoelectric products. Our customers are found in a wide range of industries, including: aerospace, automotive, consumer products, engineering & design, industrial, manufacturing, medical products, and defense.
