AST only invest in the very best level of computer workstation hardware as this is one of the main tools of our trade. We understand the benefit of high performance, specialist hardware and with today’s technology enhancements there is no excuse for slow processing and poor equipment specifications. Our commitment to continually invest in our hardware ensures we are always one step ahead of the competition.
Throughout the development of Computer Aided Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Visualisation software we have maintained hardware upgrades as an essential component to our business. Being part of this revolution from the start, AST’s team understand, better than most, what is required to deliver a powerful and reliable workstation. Finding the right partner to supply our equipment has always been challenging but in 2006 AST selected our latest partner, Workstation Specialists
(Formerly CAD2), as the sole supplier of our CAD, FEA and visualisation hardware. This relationship has grown and throughout our offices you will see only quality WS specification workstations in use.
All workstations are built using the highest grade of technology, and 100% certified for professional CAD/CAM/CAE use.
