Happy Pi Day

3/14/13 1:57 PM

Happy Pi Day!

Being in a very technical business I thought it was only appropriate to recognize Pi day........3.14.

So, I think perhaps some math is in order to celebrate Pi day.  Ponder this:

If you have a Pizza Pie that has a radius equal to Z, and a Height equal to A, the pizza pie's volume would be:

volume = pi * z * z * a.

The great state of Indiana was going to declare Pi day an officially recognized holiday.  They were going to have it fall on March 2nd!!!!  The legeslation was eventually dropped.

Happy Pi ay everyone.

Any of you that have been with ATSG for a long time can remember back to the days when a Hurricane in the Miami area meant that ATSG would be closed for a while.  Those days are WAY over.  ATSG will be open before, during, and after most any kind of disaster you can imagine as long as the internet and national phone systems are still working.

Several years ago we moved into a new building here in Miami.  We own our space now and no one can boot us out of the office just because there is a warning.  Being an all poured concrete building, it will probably be where many of us stay during the storm as it is much stronger than our homes.  We also have a full service full time generator that will run the entire office.

Even if Maimi gets totally wiped out, our new phone system and back office tracking systems are available to ATSG people from anyplace.  Anyone can be set up for either inbound or outbound calls, or both.  As for the Miami folks, as soon as there is a roof to be under the Miami office will be back up and running.

The days of ATSG shutting down for bad weather are OVER!

Close But No Cigar!

8/7/12 2:49 PM

You may have heard the phrase “Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades.” Yet at other times you may have heard “Close but no cigar.” Each of these phrases suggests entirely different outcomes. And such is the case with interchanging overdrive planetary assemblies in 5R55W/S/N series transmissions. When the OD planetary system needs to be replaced, the question that often arises on our technical hotline is: “Are the ratio differences close enough to work?” or “Are the ratio differences between these models significant enough to not work?”

Beckmann Technologies, Inc. is now able to provide unlocking services for 722.9 valve bodies and plates.  This means that historically useless transmissions, valve bodies, and TCUs can now be made serviceable again.  Although the preferred method of putting these parts back into service would be to use new electronic plates Mercedes continues to refuse the sale of these components outside their dealer network leaving our industry no other choice but to reuse the old ones.
