We engaged the center to perform our internal audit. The ATN team built an audit agenda, and they gave us the feedback we needed. The audit team was fast and efficient, and they did not disrupt our normal flow of business. With the help of ATN, we successfully re-certified to ISO 9001-2015 with our third-party auditor this year.
ATN performed an internal audit of Precision Electric Coil's quality management system, where opportunities for improvement were identified and brought to leadership’s attention. As a result, Precision Electric Coil was able to accurately grade its performance and conformance to its own processes. ATN’s internal audit helped Precision Electric Coil to be successful with their certification to the ISO 9001-2015 international quality management standard which led to increased and retained sales that could have been lost had they not maintained their certification.
ATN utilized finite element analysis to investigate the cause of failure in the earth moving equipment’s original AC motors. Models showed that the electric motors were failing due to stress induced by the heavy copper rings at each end of the motor rotating at high speeds and incurring large accelerations with insufficient support to withstand the forces that it experienced. With this information, the engineering staff at Precision Electric Coil were able to make necessary adjustments to the original equipment manufacturer’s AC motor design to prevent future failures.
