Certified aerospace quality for metal Additive Manufacturing at APWorks

September 21, 2016

Airbus APWorks GmbH, Munich, Germany, has announced that it is now certified by TÜV Süd in order to meet the highest security standards required by the aerospace industry. The EN 9100 is a prerequisite for becoming an aerospace supplier.

It is also important for customers from the industry sectors such as automotive, robotics, mechanical engineering or medical technology to have documentations and sample inspections as prerequisites for serial production, stated the company.

APWorks, being a certified company, confirms that quality requirements of their own processes and products are fulfilled and are continuously improving. A gapless, traceable documentation of the entire supply chain of a product is required with an integrated document management system. Another essential prerequisite is a risk management system as well as the implementation of standardized company processes.

Certified companies, such as APWorks, are making initial sample inspections for quality assurance. These initial sample inspections include destructive and non-destructive testing on the effective loads of a part. These tests include, but are not limited to, tensile tests, CT Scans and X-rays.

APWorks received the certificate for engineering and production of metallic products and sales of metallic powders for Additive Manufacturing.
