Fine Tubes has received its latest accreditation from Nadcap for superior standards in metal tube manufacture, entitling the company to appear on the Qualified Manufacturers List and defining it as dedicated to quality assurance.
Ronen Day, managing director of Fine Tubes said: "Fine Tubes is now on the Nadcap accredited special process list for welding – joining our Heat Treating and NDT qualifications. Quality is at the foundation of all our operations and this will help to cement customer confidence in our tube welding processes as we aim to exceed industry standards."
Nadcap assessment is carried out by an independent auditor, using an industry-approved checklist. While also observing any possible non-conformity, Nadcap seeks to highlight areas of excellence within defence and aerospace manufacture.
Joe Pinto, vice-president and chief operating officer at the Performance Review Institute said: "Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy: it is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Fine Tubes work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it."
Fine Tubes’ accreditation for welding joins previous Nadcap recognition for its Heat Treating and NDF processes. In a space or aviation environment, high standards are everything and Fine Tubes’ customer base can rest assured that they have access to a service that has been tried and tested by this globally-respected accreditation body.
