Engineering and Quality

ENGINEERING SERVICES THAT
REDUCE THE TIME TO MARKET.

ATEK Metal Technologies engineers will take time to understand your goals and work
to get your products to market faster. Our optimal product design and process controls
ensure you receive highly reliable, premium castings, time after time.

We deliver premium castings using optimal designs,
best processes and comprehensive services. 

Solidification Modeling

We use EKK software to run casting simulations on all new projects to verify the design and ensure accurate molds prior to tool build.

Tool Design

 We design and build some of the industry’s most complex permanent mold tools. Once a casting CAD model is created, we’ll design and manufacture the mold and core boxes within your specified timeframe.

Dimensional  Verification

We perform CMM dimensional inspection and digital scanning to verify the casting geometry meets your required tolerance. Digital scanning of the casting, tooling and cores (when applicable) allows data comparison to the CAD model and locates any precise dimensional deviation.

PPAP

All new projects follow a rigorous APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) development process to ensure program success. Additionally, we perform a detailed PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) to adhere to your requirements or in accordance with current AIAG standards.

Quality controls and testing ensure
castings meet your specifications.
