SPIROL Receives Nadcap Reaccreditation for Nonconventional Machining
Stow, OH – SPIROL International Corporation is proud to announce reaccreditation by the Performance Review Institute (PRI) for meeting the stringent audit criteria requirements of Nadcap Nonconventional Machining.
SPIROL is certified to the Aerospace standard AS9100. However, many of the most demanding companies in the world, such as those in the Aerospace industry, require Nadcap approval above and beyond AS9100 in order to be a direct supplier. Nadcap (formerly NADCAP, the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a global cooperative standards-setting program for aerospace engineering, defense and other related industries. This Nadcap accreditation enables SPIROL to use low cost and highly versatile nonconventional machining methods to supply products directly to companies such as BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, GE Aviation and Honeywell. Once accredited, PRI places suppliers on a Qualified Manufacturers List (QML). To maintain accreditation, annual audits are conducted by PRI personnel using process specific Nadcap checklists – in this case both AC7116 Rev B Nadcap Audit Criteria for Nonconventional Machining (ECM, ECG, EDM, LBM, LPM, SEG) and AC7116/4 Rev C Nadcap Audit Criteria for Laser Beam Machining (LBM) with the scope specific for laser cutting. Manufacturing to these checklists ensures that products are made per the strictest manufacturing disciplines resulting in the highest standard of quality.
As a testament to the prestige of this accreditation, SPIROL is 1 of only 61 suppliers in the United States, and 1 of only 106 suppliers in the world who are accredited for LBM and cutting as of August 11, 2015.
In addition to having Nadcap approval for Nonconventional Machining, SPIROL is also approved for Nadcap Chemical Processing - AS7108 Rev I, AC7108/4 Rev C, AC7108/12.
