OPERATIONS


We provide clients with a 24/7/365 technical and product support hotline, as well as dedicated field support teams and approved service and support facilities worldwide.

We pride ourselves on our ability to balance futuristic thinking with old-world craftsmanship. Every product we make is designed by the sharpest minds and assembled by the most skilled hands.

Technically, we’re engineers, technicians and fabricators, But we consider ourselves to be artists at heart. Every wire, rivet and stitch in one of our systems carries with it the passion of the people responsible for its creation.

We test, test and test a little more. Every product we make has been certified to outlast the cabin interior it is designed for.

We are a Lean Six Sigma company that utilizes continuous improvement theory and product life cycle management to drive product reliability and longevity. We apply concurrent engineering methodology to decrease product development time; improve productivity; shorten delivery lead times; and reduce costs. We utilize advanced computer aided manufacturing processes to ensure highly accurate and repeatable components.

Our product planning process is constantly evolving and designed to assure that passengers are treated to the finest experience imaginable. It includes:

  • Manufacturing resource planning
  • Factory layout optimization
  • Product line work load balancing
  • Focused assembly stations
  • Process control tools
  • Integrated Enterprise Management Software

Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) allows us to perfect the design of each product. We utilize:

  • 3D computer aided design (CAD: Dassault Systemes SolidWorks & CATIA)
  • CNC machining (3- and 5-axis)
  • CNC milling and lathe
  • Gerber cutting
  • Plastic injection molding
  • Vacuum forming
  • Tooling & fixture design
  • Industrial design
  • Rapid prototyping and product validation

ATG products undergo rigorous independent lab testing:

  • Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT)
  • Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) or Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS)
  • Environmental testing (RTCA DO-160)
  • Flammability testing (FAR 25.853 Appendix F)

Time and cost estimates are as important to us – and you – as is the weight of each product: accuracy is vital. So we take steps to assure we always keep our word.

At ATG, we operate to Six Sigma (our ultimate goal is zero manufacturing flaws), which means we continually proof for errors and defects. We rely on the highly trained and experienced hands and eyes of our people. But we also employ the precision of our digital friends:

  • Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Process control and control planning
  • Computer-aided inspection with coordinated-measuring machine (CMM) where required
  • Tolerance stack-up analysis

Intra-system communications is critical with our concurrent engineering process. We assure this with the following systems:

  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
  • Manufacturing operations management
  • Product life cycle management
  • FRACAS (failure reporting and corrective action system)
