For all projects that include software
All shipments are made by courier, e-mail attachments, or hand-delivery. For courier service, we ship using traceable courier (like FedEx).
Deposits are used as surety in case the customer cancels the project after a purchase order is issued. In case of cancellation, some of the deposit may be refundable. The exact amount is determined by the costs incurred by Advanced Tubular Technologies before the cancellation occurred. The costs may include hardware that is custom-designed or ordered specifically for the customer. At the customer’s request and expense, we can ship these items to the customer plant even if the order is canceled.
Advanced Tubular SOFTWARE
Even though any software we develop for you usually exceeds the specifications that we include in our specifications to you, we guarantee that it at least will meet all of them completely. If we discover that our software is found to be defective, then we will repair it for you. The warranty does not include travel costs for on-site repair.
Advanced Tubular HARDWARE
We warrant our hardware for 90 days. The warranty does not include travel costs for on-site repair. Failures due to neglect or “acts of God” are not covered in our warranty. Advanced Tubular reserves the right to make the final determination regarding all warranty issues. Advanced Tubular reserves the right to modify the terms of warranty without notice.
DISCLAIMER: NON-ATT EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE
We are making this quotation in good faith since we believe that the combined components in the entire work cell will function to meet the needs of your application. However, please understand that we cannot make (nor do we want to imply) a money-back guarantee that the equipment to which we connect will always work perfectly. We recognize the responsibility we have in making our part of the system work properly (as is shown in the warranty above). But we hope that you understand that we cannot accept responsibility for any problem due to the failure of other equipment or actions of other personnel for which we are not responsible.
Therefore, if any event occurs outside the control of Advanced Tubular Technologies that results in the cancellation of this project, then it is still necessary to pay all charges incurred by Advanced Tubular Technologies for the total time and materials it has invested in this project.
Additional Days of Installation/Training
Additional days of training, custom programming, or installation can be purchased while we are on-site. Extra on-site service is charged at the rate of US $225 per hour. Travel expenses are charged at our cost. We charge up to $50 per Diem (per person) for miscellaneous expenses. Travel time to and from the site is also charged at the rate of $50 per hour.
Extended Installation Times and Costs Due To Delays
If the success of this project depends on variables outside the control of Advanced Tubular Technologies, any delays out of our control that extend our installation trip will be billed to your company accordingly.

The customer is liable for any taxes, duties, and other similar charges incurred.
All prices quoted are valid for 60 days from the date on the quotation. Please contact us if you need an extension to this time limit.
