P-Tech Job Shadow


ATPI recently held a job shadowing event for Syracuse P-Tech students.  P-Tech is a specialized high school partnered with Onondaga Community College for students interested in Engineering or Machining.  The students met with different ATPI staff members to see how we program our machines, machine our parts, and inspect our parts. They had some hands on measuring as well.  We hope this new P-Tech program will inspire the students to pursue a career in manufacturing.



New Lathe For Our Tool Room


Pictured above is a new lathe purchased for our tool room to help support the CNC Machinery bought last year.  This equipment replaces a workhorse that had been in service at ATPI for 25 years.



MACNY Dinner - ATPI 25th Anniversary


Allen Tool enjoyed an evening at the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY) dinner. Cheryl was honored to accept our award for 25 years in business.  With a sold out dinner of over 700 participants we were proud to be part of this great group of companies.  We are 25 years strong and looking forward to many, many more.

Thread Rolling
Thread Rolling at a Glance

Thread rolling uses hardened steel cylindrical dies to shape ductile metals. The dies, imprinted with the thread profile, penetrate the work metal at ultra-high pressures to displace and mold it into a mirror image thread. This process differs from traditional cutting and grinding methods because no metal is lost or cut away.

Thread rolling improves tensile strength by 10% - 30% or more and fatigue strength by between 50-75% due to the hardening of the material during the rolling process. In addition to withstanding greater tensile, shear and fatigue loadings, the work hardening of the thread surface results in greater resistance to wear, corrosion and galling.
