Electronics Manufacturing Productivity Facility
The Electronics Manufacturing Productivity Facility (EMPF) was established in 1984 to aid the electronics industry in improving electronics manufacturing processes required in the manufacture of military systems. Today, ACI Technologies Inc. operates the Navy’s electronics manufacturing COE focused on the development, application and transfer of advanced electronics manufacturing technology. EMPF executes projects that reduce the cost and time to fabricate Navy ships, aircraft, weapon systems and unmanned systems by partnering with industry, academia, and government centers and laboratories to maximize available research capabilities at the lowest possible cost. EMPF operates in a modern 36,000-square-foot facility adjacent to the Philadelphia International Airport, which houses a demonstration factory containing the latest electronics manufacturing equipment, fully equipped classrooms for skill-based and professional-level technical training, and an analytical laboratory for materials and environmental testing. EMPF offers many electronics manufacturing services and capabilities to the U.S. Navy, DoD and the U.S. electronics manufacturing industrial base, and is dedicated to the advancement of environmentally safe electronics manufacturing processes, equipment, materials and practices; flexible electronics manufacturing technologies; and workforce competency.
