These examples illustrate the various needs ATI can meet and the value we provide.

1) Scoring Grooves in Golf Club Head

Request:  Alternate ways to score grooves in a golf club head.
Result:  ATI provided samples to client based on five different scoring technologies we identified.  One of the technologies, EDM, was later deemed by the USGA to be superior because of its “high quality, precision, and accuracy.”
