Fine Tubes secures 4th Nadcap accreditation
12 September 2017
Fine Tubes has been awarded a Nadcap accreditation for Chemical Processing. Nadcap is an internationally recognised accreditation system that covers the key manufacturing and production processes used within the aerospace industry.
Representing the fourth Nadcap approval awarded to fine tubes, this latest certification places the company in a unique position as very few companies hold four Nadcap accreditations simultaneously.
To achieve its latest accreditation, Fine Tubes undertook an intensive on-site inspection and investigation by a Nadcap auditor. This audit covers all aspects of the process – the machinery, consumables and methods employed, as well as the qualifications and experience of the staff involved in the process.
Fine Tubes and its US-based sister company, Superior Tube, are units of AMETEK Specialty Metal Products. Both companies have supplied the aerospace industry with tubes for more than 50 years. Their precision tubes are used in airframes, aircraft engines and aerospace instrumentation, where they are relied upon to withstand the most-critical operating conditions.
