TxV Aero Composites, a joint venture between Victrex plc and Tri-Mack Plastics Manufacturing Corporation, has received AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certification for a thermoplastic composite part manufacturing facility.
To achieve AS9100 certification, the standardized quality management system for aerospace, TxV defined all process interactions and developed QMS documentation including a quality manual, work instructions and process for maintaining records to achieve compliance with the standard.
‘Achieving operational readiness and compliance with AS9100 and ISO standards are key milestones for our growing business,’ said Jonathan Sourkes, senior account manager at TxV.
TxV’s manufacturing processes are based on Victrex thermoplastic composites and its manufacturing facility was designed and built to form polyketone composite parts for commercial aerospace. The site features automated tape laying, consolidation, forming, and injection molding as well as a quality lab on site to ensure compliance to the quality requirements of the aerospace industry.
