Inspection & Training Overview
We are committed to quality before any other consideration.
At Atec we believe that the quality of our products and services reigns supreme. We aim to build premier products on time at a good value for our customers, but we will never sacrifice our end result for cost or schedule concerns. We go to great lengths to make sure that our Quality Management System (QMS) is always operating at a high level so that we can uphold our product and systems success rates while simultaneously adhering to timelines and cost projections.
Atec’s QMS ensures steadfast commitment to both domestic ASQ and SAE standards, EU requirements, as well as international ISO/AS quality standards. Atec’s inspection labs offer the industry’s most sophisticated equipment, including 5 CMMs and laser/optical units, as well as a full complement of electronic and environmental test equipment. Test technicians and quality assurance personnel combine their in-depth knowledge and experience with our thorough regimen of equipment to guarantee the reliability, accuracy, and longevity of our products.
The key to our quality commitment is regular, in-depth training for our entire Atec employee base. Every member of our team, from the newest addition to the seasoned veteran, is required to periodically attend rotating training sessions covering every aspect of our business. We emphasize staying up to date on the most cutting edge techniques, tools, and procedures within specific job roles and within our company as a whole. Additionally, we frequently train our customers’ operating personnel to ensure their success in using our products and systems. We also provide training in technological areas such as FEA, CFD, and software programming.
We have over 20 years of performance commendations from USDOD branches, and Atec’s quality and performance over the years for our nation’s aerodefense and launch capability is widely recognized. Our involvement with NASA, United Launch Alliance, USAF, USN, DARPA, DCMA and large Primes has contributed greatly to the retention of key suppliers for USDOD, US Space Program and our Allies. Our critical aviation and space flight experience, as well as our history with cryogenics, has contributed to Atec’s emerging involvement in testing and inspection in related functions, such as high pressure testing and high temperature testing for broad applications.
