Metal Additive Manufacturing company CalRAM, California, USA, has been awarded Nadcap accreditation for Additive Manufacturing by the Performance Review Institute (PRI). According to CalRAM, this is the first-time a company has received dual accreditation for Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) and Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (ePBF).

As well as possessing Nadcap accreditation, CalRAM is AS9100 certified and a Digital Product Definition (DPD) approved supplier. Shane Collins, CalRAM’s Director of Additive Manufacturing Programs, commented, “Four months after stating our intent to pursue accreditation, to receive this critical milestone in pursuing AM excellence is a phenomenal feat, particularly noting this has been completed on the very first attempt.”

Sergio Hernandez, Director of Quality Assurance for the initiative, added, “This accreditation is a critical strategic element for CalRAM to reinforce our high standards of excellence in the Additive Manufacturing Community”.

Nadcap, the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program, is a global co-operative accreditation program for aerospace engineering, defence and related industries. Nadcap accreditation is industry-managed and brings together technical experts from both industry and government to establish requirements for accreditation, accredit suppliers and define operational programme requirements.
