LAI International Inc., Tempe AZ has become the first Supplier to be accredited to Nadcap’s Additive Manufacturing checklist, AC7110/14

15 May 2017

The Performance Review Institute is pleased to announce that LAI International, a leading contract manufacturer of precision-engineered finished parts, components and sub-assemblies for advanced industries, recently earned the first Nadcap Additive Manufacturing Accreditation.

LAI Director of Quality, Joe Beauchemin Jr, stated ‘Having Nadcap Welding Additive Manufacturing Certification has improved LAI’s sales opportunity and reduced operational cost. PRI provides the infrastructure, documentation, and support to help companies achieve certification.

The Additive Manufacturing checklist developed by the Nadcap Welding Task Group, used to get the Nadcap Accreditation, is based on Subscriber requirements and is specifically for laser and electron beam powder bed metallic components. It is available in eAuditNet via Resources / Documents / Audit Checklists / Welding.

Ian Simpson, Program Manager for Welding at PRI, would like to thank both LAI for their pro-active approach to becoming accredited, as well as the dedicated work by the sub-team led by Dr Richard Freeman of TWI, who developed the checklist and ensured its seamless introduction into the Nadcap program.

Any company who is interested in gaining Nadcap Additive Manufacturing Accreditation, or would like further information, should contact Ian Simpson, Program Manager – Welding (isimpson@p-r-i.org tel: +44 1332 869272) or Staff Engineer, Gabe Kustra (gkustra@p-r-i.org tel: +1 724 772 8673) for more details.
