About ABTech

What We Do

Since 1998, ABTech has been providing ultra-precision motion systems such as, spindles, rotary tables, and linear slides, measurement systems like roundness gages, diameter gages, and thickness gages, and turbine engine assembly systems, all for customer applications that demand sub-micron accuracies.

ABTech’s air-bearing technology provides the highest accuracy and nearly absolute repeatability with no contacting parts to wear over time, therefore delivering years of reliable and maintenance-free operation. Our willingness to customize, along with a wide variety of products and experiences, gives us the flexibility to provide cost-effective, application-specific solutions.

Our systems range from a simple single-axis air-bearing all the way up to a complete turn-key motion system consisting of a multi-axis controller and our proprietary software resulting in the most state-of-the-art precision instruments that are extremely accurate, reliable, and very easy to use. ABTech is worldwide and serves industries including nanotechnologies, photonics, test and inspection, aerospace, aviation, automotive, optics, and more.

Whether it’s company, client, or community, it is people and the care and feeding of relationships that drive success. At ABTech we strive to make every interaction better by focusing on collaboration, learning, innovation, and the well-being of all our stakeholders.

Our Principles of Collaboration

Choose our attitude: We have the power to choose our response to difficult situations, and as a result, we find opportunities we never imagined possible.

Support each other: The glue in our humanity is in being fully present for one another. We are not tuned out, distracted, or focused on the past or future, but simply in the present moment.

Make their day: We look for ways to “make someone’s day” through small acts of kindness or unforgettable engagements, turning routine encounters into special memories.

Have fun: We enjoy what we’re doing and working with each other; co-workers, customers, and vendors alike. Having fun sparks creativity, productivity, and job satisfaction.

What does “Pride in Precision” mean? To us, it means having the natural desire to do our best at every task. Whether it’s responding to a product quote, building precise high-quality gages and measurement systems, or managing relationships, we take pride in doing the best we can do.

The great Vince Lombardi said “Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect”
And that is the philosophy that drives our company. ABTech has a history of taking Pride in Precision in manufacturing and building a reputation for quality. We have fostered a team-oriented atmosphere that goes beyond just staff but also includes our customers and vendors. Treating everyone as part of our team whether they are internal or external to our organization is central to our success.

In addition, we continually seek traditional and non-traditional ways to improve. One such effort was to develop our culture with intention which we call “Pride in People”. We are striving to create a safer coaching atmosphere as we work on refining our Emotional Intelligence skills such as self-awareness, giving and receiving feedback, and managing triggers.

I want to thank the entire ABTech family for participating in this effort and for exploring new ways to communicate. I am grateful to my dear friend Jeff Saari of Visionary Coaching, LLC for guiding us through this journey.

I encourage others to reflect upon their own Emotional Intelligence and how those around you are treated. For example: What is it like to have a conversation with you? The “World Famous Pikes Place Fish Market” owned and operated by John Yokoyama is a fantastic example of the benefits of focusing on everyday interactions. It’s worth checking out his book “When Fish Fly.” It might change your life. I know it changed mine.

As for ABTech, I am confident that together we will continue to learn and grow towards perfecting a company culture in which we can all take great pride.

Thanks a lot for your help. Your rapid, informative correspondence was invaluable. Hopefully I won't be bothering you with any further questions, but it's good to know you're willing.
