Qualified NADCAP Approved Suppliers
NADCAP, short for National Aerospace & Defense Contractors Accreditation Program, was initially conceived by the Department of Defense as a means to control cost and ensure consistent aerospace product and process quality. During the early '90s, many of the large primes, most notably Pratt & Whitney and GE, carried the program forward. Today, virtually every aerospace prime and their major suppliers across the globe dictate NADCAP accreditation as a condition of doing business with them. Nadcap has programs for testing labs, non-destructive testing, heat treating, coatings, chemical processing, and more. Anoplate's approval, in addition to the Aerospace Quality System AC7004, is in accordance with SAE Aerospace Standard AS7003 for chemical processing and includes 21 processes and 78 specifications.
Detail Oriented NADCAP Approved Suppliers
NADCAP process assessment and certification ensure that all requirements are identified, documented, and recorded prior to starting the order. Furthermore, it assures that critical aerospace part processing, inspection and testing are conducted per documented procedures, and essential data recorded, stored, and furnished per specification and PO without exception. This is done by performing rigorous and in-depth job audits following parts from receiving through final inspection.
NADCAP Approved Plating
Administered by the Performance Review Institute (PRI), NADCAP is a global cooperative accreditation program that establishes strict standards for chemical processing including metal plating. The plating services offered by companies should undergo an audit and accreditation process to become NADCAP certified. These audits conducted by experts are a thorough technical assessment of compliance to customer requirements and industry guidelines. Anoplate has passed an audit of NADCAP’s quality system requirements that conforms to the Aerospace Quality System Standards. This certification reassures our customers that we are implementing safe and quality processes, and we have highly-eligible platers who ensure that all our work meets the required aerospace specifications.
NADCAP Approved Suppliers With High Production Standards
As an industry-managed program, NADCAP promotes a standardized approach to quality assurance by conducting more in-depth, special-process audits. According to the 2011 PRI survey, 85% of suppliers report a quality improvement in the areas for which they are NADCAP accredited and it helped them raise their profile within the industry. The goal of this program is to offer suppliers an opportunity to maintain high standards and improve quality through stringent requirements. Having a NADCAP certification guarantees Anoplate’s solid industry standards and it’s a way to show our clients that the processes of our company are top-notch.
Even if you're not making aerospace parts that mandate NADCAP chemical processing accreditation, the regimen established to accommodate such requirements benefits all Anoplate customers. Whether you're making parts for computers or surgical instruments, you're assured that they're being done according to the highest standards for the plating industry.
