Nadcap welding is an exceptionally clean and uniform process used in aerospace and other government association contract manufacturing projects. Nadcap-certified processes use premium metals like argon due to their higher purity and corrosion-resistance properties. The results include improved supplier quality, reduced operational costs and higher quality production overall.
Axenics holds the D 17.1 Nadcap Welding Certification in accordance with National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) standards. Of the many certifications that contract manufacturing companies hold, Nadcap is one of the most highly coveted. In order to receive Nadcap accreditation, suppliers must undergo a strict and detailed auditing process. Before a company can be audited for Nadcap accreditation, it must first be AS9100-certified (the Aerospace Manufacturing Standard).
Although Nadcap accreditation was originally established as a means of standardizing quality assurance measures for the aerospace and defense industries, the accreditation has become a symbol of excellence across the board.
Our certified staff is capable of welding and testing to customer specifications and/or certifications upon request. Axenics’ Nadcap accreditation assures our commercial and military aerospace customers that Axenics is sufficiently equipped to produce quality material for Tier One, Tier Two and/or Tier Three suppliers, maintaining the high standards set forth by the industry.
As a result of Nadcap, manufacturers and suppliers in the industry have seen a decrease in the number of audits per year and an overall increase in quality. In fact, according to PRI, “85% of Nadcap accredited companies report a measured improvement in quality as a result of being Nadcap accredited.” Axenics is proud to hold the D 17.1 Nadcap Welding Certification.
