Minimizing risk, maximizing flexibility and avoiding capital costs means having the right resources ready when you need them. FTI takes total responsibility for the products we provide and we will also manage assembly components from your suppliers as well.

At FTI, everyone on our team is responsible for quality assurance and customer service. It’s a focus in everything we do. Whether it’s a one-time need to evaluate critical characteristics with standard gaging or as comprehensive as Level III PPAP, we’re here.
We have the capability to measure a wide variety of parts. Our Zeiss Contura 700 CMM has a primary envelope of 20” X 22” x 25” and can verify 0.00008” over its extended range. For less complicated components, we have all types of certified gages or part-specific attribute measurement available.
If you need assistance with creating the best inspection criteria, we will work together from your 3D models or we can create them for you. FTI can also customize the documentation template.
