Teledyne CML Receives Nadcap Composite Manufacturing Accreditation


BROMBOROUGH, UK -​ May 9, 2013 - Teledyne CML Group (CML), a division of Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., announced today that it has received Nadcap composite manufacturing accreditation AC7118 PAR Rev C.

The accreditation applies to CML's new composites facility which was officially opened in October 2011 by HRH the Duke of York. The scope of the approval includes prepreg lay up, NC ply cutting, autoclave curing, NC machining, trimming and drilling.

"We are pleased to have received accreditation and are committed to producing the highest quality composite parts for all of our customers," said Geoff Stewart, managing director of CML. "Nadcap accreditation underlines that commitment and provides CML with a highly-recognizable discriminator in the aerospace manufacturing industry."

CML received the AC7118 Rev C accreditation after passing a rigorous Nadcap audit. The Nadcap accreditation, along with its AS9100 Rev C accreditation, underlines CML's commitment to the highest quality standards and positions the company to capitalise on the growth in use of composites, particularly within the aerospace industry within which it primarily operates.

"Achieving Nadcap is no easy task. Nadcap accreditation is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Teledyne CML work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it," said Joe Pinto, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute, the not-for-profit organization which administers Nadcap. "PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies such as Teledyne CML be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward.”
