Are you in the aviation/aerospace market? Do you manufacture aerospace composites?

 

Then no doubt you are aware that CAMX 2016 is right around the corner. The exhibition booth spaces have been sold out for months. It helps that a well-known Mickey Mouse operation is located next door. I may even visit Disney’s California Adventure Park myself.

Aerospace Composite Manufacturers: How NADCAP & AMS2750E Grow Business

I had the privilege of attending the latest NADCAP meetings in Montreal late in June. Because so many of our customers in both metallurgy and aerospace composites manufacturing require NADCAP certification, I want to be sure we’re on top of all the requirements. So, I regularly attend two or three meetings yearly and sit in on the Composites Task Group.

A few years ago, companies doing aerospace profiles and extrusions followed their internal procedures, with no industry standards to drive quality assurance. In many cases, aluminum heat treatment processes only required air temperature measurement with stationary thermocouples (TCs). These stationary TC wires were rarely checked for their calibration and were only replaced when not functioning.

I recently participated in two NADCAP* group sessions in London, UK over the week of February 23-27, 2014; Composite Task Group and the Heat Treating Task Group. The attendance at both groups was impressive with a good population of primes and suppliers from around the globe.
