Aerospace Welding – a Joint Solution

Welding is used to form a joint of two similar or dis-similar metals to create a solution where forming in one piece isn’t possible. Welding is used in aerospace production and repair of various systems and products such as protection systems, aircraft joints etc. with materials from Stainless Steel and Aluminium to Titanium and Magnesium.

Specifications mandate the initial and re-qualification (coding) of the welder, the review of any design changes, the tests to verify the procedure and integrity of the component.

The qualifying weld must be witnessed by an approved welding engineer, a qualified welding supervisor or a third party inspection body. The verification tests check the internal metallurgical health, heat affected zone (HAZ) and immediate vicinities, taking into consideration the type, class, joint configuration and criticality of the joint and the welder.

More Successful Accreditations

Directors and employees at Keighley Laboratories Limited are celebrating the successful results of two audits in recent weeks.

The Heat Treatment division has achieved the Nadcap (Heat Treating) accreditation for their Nitriding process, to add to the company’s growing list of accreditations and prime approvals.  This achievement is important for Keighley Laboratories as it demonstrates their commitment to delivering the highest standards of Heat Treating to the aerospace industry.

“Congratulations to Keighley Laboratories on successfully passing what may be the aerospace industry’s most stringent process capability assessment audit,” said Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “Nadcap audit criteria are widely acknowledged to be hard to meet and companies like Keighley Labs, who succeed at doing so, rightfully deserve recognition.”

In addition, the Heat Treatment division has recently undergone a successful annual BSI reassessment for BSI BS EN 9100:2009; AS 9100 rev C accreditation.

Managing Director, Debbie Mellor, commented,

“The range and number of accreditations held by Keighley Laboratories builds the support and confidence of our customers.  They highlight the company’s achievements and strengths, particularly important in our competitive market.  This confidence is demonstrated by customer interest in our new Gaseous Nitrocarburising process which is now up and running.

As part of our continuing strategy to increase business with the aerospace sector the Technical Services division at Keighley Laboratories plans to extend existing Nadcap (Material Testing Laboratory) scope to include chemical analysis.”

Attending Subcon? – Let’s Meet Up

Subcon is the UK’s premier manufacturing supply chain show dedicated to subcontract and outsourced engineering services.  Michael Emmott, our Divisional Commercial Director for Heat Treatment, will be attending Subcon at NEC Birmingham.  This will be an opportunity to meet up with subcontract manufacturing buyers from all industry sectors to discuss your specific metallurgical requirements.

Michael has over 40 years’ of experience in his field and would like to meet up to discuss how Keighley Laboratories can best support your Metallurgical Heat Treatment, Chemical Analysis and Mechanical Testing requirements.

Keighley Laboratories Limited has provided metallurgical services since 1920, working to quality standards which include UKAS 17025, Nadcap – Heat Treating (Nitriding), Nadcap – Material Testing and BSI 9001, AS9100 Rev C.

Keighley Laboratories has an extensive portfolio of Heat Treatment processes together with Testing and Analysis services.  The latest addition to our portfolio is Gaseous Nitrocarburising  – a non-toxic heat treatment process which can match or improve resistance to wear, scuffing, galling and seizure compared with the alternative salt bath based process, whilst reducing the environmental impact.

Michael has a limited number of appointment times available at Subcon and he will be delighted if you could join him for a coffee and a chat.
