UTC Aerospace Systems' Engineered Polymer Products (EPP) facility recently received Nadcap (national aerospace and defence contractors accreditation program) accreditation for manufacture of aerospace composites.
The Composites accreditation follows a Chemical Processing accreditation achievedby the company in August 2013. EPP believe both accreditations certify to customers that it meets the most stringent aerospace industry quality standards.
Marc Duvall, Aerostructures President says "Nadcap accreditation is a clear demonstration to both our customers and our industry that we're committed to providing quality products. The Nadcap special process accreditations are third-party, industry-recognised and show our customers, employees, regulators and certifying bodies that EPP possesses a high degree of technical competence in its operations.
Alvant has been appointed to work on a two-year, £28 million project titled Large Landing Gear of the Future, which aims to deliver a 30% weight reduction and assist the aerospace industry’s drive to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Hexadrone’s 3D printed Tundra prototype, manufactured by CRP Technology via laser sintering (LS) technology using Windform SP and Windform XT 2.0 carbon composite materials, has won the Red Dot Award 2018 in the drone category.
UK company Norco Composites has invested in a larger spray booth and a new cutting and kitting machine to enable the company to increase productivity in line with growing demand from its marine customers.
