The Engineering Process at Altair Technologies

Like many other manufacturing operations, Altair engineering supports its own product research and development, design, manufacturing processes and continuous improvement efforts. Additionally in the spirit of collaboration, our engineering staff is in direct contact with many existing and potential customers.  We are a technically driven company and have found that technical sales tend to dominate the decision making of many key accounts. 

Virtually every request for a quote is reviewed by our engineering staff. In many cases, the job structure and any follow-up inquiries are conducted by the engineer who will oversee and perhaps build the product. When applicable, we go beyond the specifications listed and inquire about legacy data and conditions, often helping to identify any unforeseen issues at a system level. Some customers request we perform an in-depth print package review and make recommendations for high quality braze joints before releasing their documentation.  Our customers tend to develop strong relationships with our engineering staff and regard these relationships as the center of our value proposition. 


"We offer extensive knowledge of mechanical design and manufacturing principles with proven abilities for developing inventive products and tools for various industries. We believe in a collaborative design process with our customers, building prosperous relationships."
