BTI specializes in the design and manufacture of custom
equipment, electrically and hydraulically operated
and PLC driven. Blazing Tech will design products for specific applications and to meet specific customer requirements.
Blazing Technologies has the equipment, expertise, and experience needed to design, prototype, and manufacture its products. BTI has a workforce that believes in producing quality products; they have standards that exceed ISO 9001 requirements. BTI knows that the customer has the final say as to whether a product is acceptable or meets their expectations. Of course, customers of BTI are rarely dissatisfied with the end product, because it is BTI's philosophy to include the customer in the entire process of developing the product and thereby reducing the likelihood of surprises once the final product is put into iron. BTI believes in the the Integrated Product Development process (IPD) and has used it successfully since the inception of Blazing Technologies Inc. BTI either has, or utilizes local suppliers of laser cutting equipment, water jetting equipment, CNC machining centers, plastics manufacturers, welding and fabrication equipment, powder coating equipment, hydraulic and electrical suppliers. BTI designs and makes all of its own hydraulic hoses and specifically uses Parker Hydraulic hose and fittings.

Engineering systems consist of workstations running the latest solid modeling software networked together with a server running the latest server software and employing the latest in parametric technologies. All designs are created in 3D space using solid modeling in order to better visualize design and check for tolerances - we call this virtual prototyping. All designs are detailed down to the part level including purchased components with material specifications and a smart part numbering system. All BTI development projects are performed using the BTI IPD process that is a totally integrated product development process that includes the customer throughout the entire design process. BTI engineering has the programming capability to create entire vehicle control systems and create a user interface for full diagnostic capabilities.

Materials Requirements Planning is done through a computerized MRP system. All project parts exist in an item master database and unit bills of materials are active live and instantly. This allows Blazing Technologies, Inc. to mass produce existing units and future products and to plan for parts delivery on the dates that they are required (JIT) for assembly. Parts remain in inventory only a few days and allows for the greatest inventory turns.
Because of Blazing Technologies Inc.'s vast experience with construction equipment, specifically in the areas of hydraulic mobile cranes and aerial work platforms, BTI has been asked to consult on many various issues including hydraulic system analysis, full system analysis, structural and performance problems. BTI enters into consulting agreements for OEMs of equipment and end users as an independent body capable of providing an unbiased analysis of systems or equipment.
Blazing Technologies Inc. has for years, and continues to be, a member of the ANSI committees that are the regulating bodies for Aerial Work Platforms, Scissor Lifts, Boom Lifts, and Airport Service self propelled Scissor and Boom Lifts. The ANSI organizations that are associated with the aforementioned committees are A92.5, A92.6, and A92.7 respectively. Currently, BTI's Bob Backer is the chairman of A92.7.
