The Sheffield, UK, laboratory operated by Element Materials Technology has been awarded Nadcap accreditation for destructive testing services.
This latest accreditation for the aerospace laboratory covers high cycle fatigue testing, low cycle fatigue testing, chemistry, metallography and mechanical testing, including creep and stress rupture testing services.
‘’Receiving this Nadcap accreditation demonstrates our commitment to our clients by offering a complete range of testing services approved to the very highest levels of excellence," states Rick Sluiters, EVP Aerospace at Element. "With the recent acquisition of Exova, the combined group now has 29 Nadcap accredited laboratories operating in eight countries in North America and Europe, offering our clients quality assurance and unparalleled access to the capacities, capabilities and collective expertise of a single, market leading partner.’’
Element Sheffield is equipped with new high cycle and low cycle fatigue testing capabilities, an increased capacity in creep and stress rupture testing and expanded capacity in high temperature tensile testing. Investments have also been made in the aerospace and medical device testing and chemistry lab facilities, which now feature increased capacity and larger scope.
The latest version of VERICUT machine simulation, verification and optimisation software, V8.1, will be featured on CGTech’s stand at the MACH 2018 manufacturing trade show in Birmingham, UK, on 9-13 April.
North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) and Richard Mille have signed a long-term collaboration and exclusive supply agreement. The new multi-year contract will see NTPT develop and provide its lightweight thin ply materials exclusively to Richard Mille for horology, jewellery and luxury stationery items.
The UK's Engineering Industries Association (EIA) and the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) have received confirmation of government funding for UK engineering companies to exhibit at overseas trade shows.
