Morf3D, Inc., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation specializing in AM optimization and engineering for the Aerospace, Defense and Space industries, has received certification from the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap). Morf3D is now one of only 10 companies worldwide to hold this coveted certification for additive manufacturing. Canadian company Burloak also confirmed last week that it received Nadcap certification for its heat treatment process.
Earning our Nadcap certification and becoming one of only 10 companies in the world to earn this distinguished accreditation is a testament to Morf3D’s focus on quality. This extends the importance of the work we do and allows us to continue to take additive manufacturing to new heights.Ivan Madera, CEO of Morf3D, Inc.
Nadcap is an industry-led approach to “special process” conformity assessment that brings together technical experts from prime contractors, suppliers and government officials. Together they work to establish vendor approval requirements using a standardized approach. Nadcap has classified additive manufacturing as a special process, which means that the construction of a part goes far beyond what happens inside the chamber and intends to validate process controls, including maintenance, calibrations, machine qualification and inspection.
Morf3D also holds supplier member voting rights on the Nadcap working group and is the leader of the additive manufacturing sub-team. This allows Morf3D to provide valuable input and help develop the program alongside OEM Prime members.
Morf3D’s Applied Digital Manufacturing Center will house 150 multidisciplinary engineers, research staff and technical teams. The ADMC will also serve as a solid industrial base that ensures the continuity of Morf3D’s highest quality products and enhances the company’s technological edge, which enriches Morf3D’s partners and customer applications worldwide.
