SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Continuing its longtime dedication to excellence, Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) has renewed its AS9100 certification, a key quality indicator for companies working in the aerospace and defense industries.
The certification ensures MTI’s friction welding machines, contract friction welding services and all other design processes are aligned with the strict standards for air and space travel.
“NQA are delighted to award Manufacturing Technology, Inc with renewed certification to AS9100," says Jon Cross, National Sales and Marketing Manager at NQA USA. "The team have shown impressive dedication to providing quality products and services to the aerospace and defense industries and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with them in the future.”
The certification covers both MTI’s machine build location on Washington Street and its 117,000-square-foot Manufacturing Services building on Sheridan Street. MTI's UK location also holds this certification.
“This renewed AS9100 certification tells customers our welds can be used in some of the most advanced machines in the world," says MTI President and CEO Dan Adams. "We are committed to a high level of quality every day and this is proof of that."
AS9100 is the quality management standard specific to the aerospace industry but it also includes the ISO 9001 standard verbatim. Consequently, any company registered to AS9100 also meets the requirements of ISO 9001. In addition, this standard includes additional requirements specific to the unique requirements of the aerospace industry. First published in May 1997 by the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) as AS9000, the AS standard has evolved to AS9100 Rev. D and is recognized by all major Aerospace OEMs.
MTI has established itself as a leader in friction welding, including Low-Force Friction, Rotary Friction, Linear Friction, and Friction Stir Welding technologies. In addition to contract manufacturing services, MTI has delivered machines for aerospace, oil and gas, automotive, and military applications. A family owned business founded in 1926, MTI employs 185 people in their South Bend and United Kingdom locations.
