Additive Manufacturing has been making a transition from a prototyping tool to an accepted way to make tooling and end-use parts across industries, and specifically in the Aerospace industry. PADT has always been at the leading edge of this transformation and today we are pleased to announce the next step in this evolution: The Quality Management System PADT uses to manage our scanning and 3D printing services have been certified to be compliant to the AS9100D(2016) and ISO9001:2015 standards.
This certification will allow our Aerospace customers to come to PADT with the knowledge that an accredited quality organization, Orion Registrar, Inc., has audited our QMS and it meets the requirements of the latest aerospace manufacturing quality standards. Developing our QMS to meet these standards has been an ongoing effort in PADT’s Advanced Manufacturing Department that separates the scanning and 3D Printing services we offer from most service providers. This investment in developing a robust and effective QMS and the certification it has received reaffirms our commitment to not just print or scan parts for people. PADT takes quality, process, and customer satisfaction seriously.
Even if they are not printing or scanning Aerospace components, customers benefit from our certified QMS. Every project is conducted under an established system that builds in quality, inspects for it, and continuously improves.
This milestone would not have been achieved without the dedication of our quality team along with the cooperation and enthusiasm of our Advanced Manufacturing staff. From front-office to facilities to machine operators, everyone did their part to establish a high standard and then achieve certification.
The best way to understand the advantages of how PADT does Scanning and 3D Printing is to try us out. You can also learn more by visiting our Aerospace Manufacturing page where we talk about our QMS and the services it covers.
