Nadcap forms additive manufacturing task group

The Nadcap program, which offers quality assurance certification to suppliers in the aviation, defense, and space industries, is developing a new task group for additive manufacturing (AM).

The Performance Review Institute (PRI), which set up Nadcap, also runs 23 other task groups consisting of representatives from the aerospace industry who create the audit criteria used to accredit suppliers for various processes.

“Together, we will work towards developing specific audit criteria for AM processes and ensure high quality AM products are manufactured in accordance with the principles of the Nadcap program,” said Jay Solomond, executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Interested industry professionals are encouraged to participate, PRI said. For more information email
