Burloak Technologies receives Nadcap certification

April 26, 2022

Burloak Technologies Inc., Oakville, Ontario, Canada, a division of Samuel, Son & Co., Limited, has been awarded Nadcap accreditation for its in-house heat treatment facility, demonstrating that the company’s heat treatment capabilities meet or exceed the aerospace industry’s standards.

Heat treatment is a specialised process that stabilises the metallic microstructure and balances the material properties of additively manufactured components. Burloak explains that it received its accreditation after a rigorous third-party audit process.

Nadcap (formerly known as the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a worldwide cooperative programme designed to continuously improve standards within the aerospace and defence industries. Nadcap certification is said to ensure improved product quality, customer satisfaction and the implementation of best practices.

“Our Nadcap accreditation is the result of an extensive review and performance audit designed to ensure our heat treatment processes meet the highest standards in terms of control and repeatability,” stated Jason Ball, vice president & General Manager of Burloak Technologies. “I’m so proud of our team for this achievement, which further proves the depth of capabilities we continue to build.”
