“Atlas is willing to take on products that are not always simple and straightforward.”
– Michael Tomasic, Sourcing Specialist
Air Products and Chemicals contracted Atlas to machine conical parts out of an extremely hard material. Due to the geometry of the part, the material used and other factors, Air Products’ ability to accurately define its needs with a drawing was extremely limited. Instead, a company representative needed to work with the machinist to make on-the-fly decisions based on how the part was actually cutting. Atlas devoted the necessary qualified resources to the job, leading to the successful creation of three high-quality parts. Atlas’ personnel also provided some excellent suggestions for cost improvements on the job for the next time.
