Morf3D: National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation

Morf3D Receives National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) to Become One of 10 in the World
Morf3D Inc, a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation and a trusted leader in metal additive manufacturing (AM) that specializes in AM optimization and engineering for the aerospace, defense, and space industries, announced it has received National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) certification. Morf3D is now one of 10 companies across the globe with this highly coveted certification for additive manufacturing.
"Achieving our Nadcap certification and becoming one of only 10 companies in the world to achieve this distinguished accreditation is a testament to Morf3D's focus on quality," said Ivan Madera, CEO for Morf3D, Inc. "It extends the importance of the work we do and allows us to continue taking additive manufacturing to new heights."
Nadcap is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of 'special processes' that brings together technical experts from prime contractors, suppliers, and representatives from the government. Together, they work to establish requirements for approval of suppliers using a standardized approach. Nadcap has classified Additive Manufacturing as a special process, meaning that so much more goes into building a part than just what is going on inside the chamber, and intends to validate process controls including maintenance, calibrations, machine qualification, and inspection. For further information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing 2020-2030: COVID Edition.
Jay Solomond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute, said: "Nadcap accreditation is globally recognized as a hallmark of quality, and is a major accomplishment. For many years, the aerospace industry has incorporated Nadcap into its approach for handling risk, as it demonstrates compliance to industry standards and customer requirements. I am delighted, therefore, that Morf3D has achieved Nadcap accreditation for additive manufacturing as a special process under welding, and that all their hard work has paid off."
MORF3D also holds supplier voting members rights on the Nadcap task group and is the leader of the Additive Manufacturing sub team. This allows MORF3D to provide valuable input and contribute to the development of the program alongside the OEM Prime members.
Morf3D's Applied Digital Manufacturing Center will house 150 multi-discipline engineers, research staff, and technical teams. The ADMC will also serve as a strong industrial base that ensures the continuity of Morf3D's highest quality products and enhances the company's technology edge, which enrich Morf3D's partners and customer applications worldwide.
