The Nitrex Heat Treating Services (HTS) facility in Franklin, Indiana, received the Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) accreditation for the following processes: heat treating for multiple alloy families, stress relieving, carburizing, nitriding, vacuum heat treating, hardness, and metallography.
“This central U.S. location and the Nitrex expertise will be used to expand our aerospace focus and business in the U.S.,” said Mark K. Hemsath, vice president of sales at Nitrex Heat Treating Services, Americas.
The Nadcap is known as the highest level of quality certification when it comes to heat treating. It is not only valuable in the aerospace sector, but it also shows a trusted level of expertise in the defense and precision industries.
“Nitrex is global leader in gas nitriding and this accreditation not only shows our commitment to offer the best quality to our customers, but also our expertise in alternative processes,” Hemsath said.
Nadcap has approved the operations of the Nitrex HTS facilities in Franklin, Indiana, and in Queretaro, Mexico.
As the highest level of international aerospace approval, a Nadcap accreditation is considered to be the hardest one to obtain.
This industry-managed program has the most stringent requirements to ensure that those using special processes and heat-treating parts for the aerospace industry adhere to consistent, high-quality standards. Focusing on maintaining global quality standards not only helps ensure the safety of everyone using these products, but it also helps companies continually improve and refine heat-treatment processes to provide customers with the best product quality possible.
