Morf3D receives Nadcap accreditation for Additive Manufacturing

April 27, 2022

Morf3D, Inc, a Nikon subsidiary headquartered in El Segundo, California, USA, has received National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) certification for Additive Manufacturing.

“Achieving our Nadcap certification and becoming one of only ten companies in the world to achieve this distinguished accreditation is a testament to Morf3D’s focus on quality,” stated Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D. “It extends the importance of the work we do and allows us to continue taking Additive Manufacturing to new heights.”

Nadcap is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of special processes that brings together technical knowledge from prime contractors, suppliers, and representatives from the government. Together, they work to establish requirements for approval of suppliers using a standardised approach. Nadcap has classified Additive Manufacturing as a ‘special process’ – i.e., much more goes into building a part than just what is going on inside the chamber – and intends to validate process controls including maintenance, calibrations, machine qualification, and inspection.

Morf3D also holds supplier voting members’ rights on the Nadcap task group and is the leader of the Additive Manufacturing sub team. This allows Morf3D to provide input and contribute to the development of the programme alongside the OEM Prime members.

Morf3D’s Applied Digital Manufacturing Center will house 150 multi-discipline engineers, research staff, and technical teams. The ADMC will also serve as a strong industrial base that hopes to ensure the continuity of Morf3D’s quality and technologies.
