AP&C receives ISO13485 certification

September 28, 2017

Arcam AB’s powder manufacturing subsidiary AP&C in Quebec, Canada, has received ISO13485 certification. This certification is designated for the orthopaedic implant industry. In addition to the new ISO13485 certification, AP&C is already certified to ISO9001 and AS9100.

Alain Dupont, President of AP&C, stated, “The ISO13485 certification proves our firm’s commitment in producing quality powder to the industries we serve. With the certifications and our recently inaugurated new state of the art powder manufacturing plant we are well positioned to serve our customer’s needs.”

“The demand for high-end titanium powder is driven by the accelerated growth and industry adaptation of Additive Manufacturing,” added Magnus René, CEO of Arcam. “Arcam, AP&C and GE Additive are committed to disrupt conventional manufacturing and help the industry evolve into Additive Manufacturing by offering high quality and cost-effective solutions. This ISO13485 certification is one more step into the future of Additive Manufacturing.”

AP&C opened a new powder production facility in Saint-Eustache, Quebec, Canada in September 2017. The new manufacturing plant will employ more than one hundred new staff by the end of the year, making it one of the largest employers in the region and marking a significant growth for AP&C, which has quadrupled in size over the last two years.

With a present total production capacity of 750 tons and planned production capacity of 1,250 tons at full capacity, the new plant is poised to meet the growing demand for titanium powders in terms of quality and capacity.
