Bodycote's Swedish Site Earns Nadcap AccreditationJanuary 10, 2018
Bodycote plc, Macclesfield, U.K., provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services, announced that its Surahammar, Sweden, hot isostatic pressing (HIP) location earned Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) accreditation.
The Surahammar site produces Powdermet near net shape (NNS) and selective surface net shape (SSNS) powder-metal components for markets such as oil and gas, marine, nuclear, tool steel and automotive. Powdermet technologies incorporate patent-pending techniques that combine 3D printing with well-established net shape and NNS techniques. The technology reduces the manufacturing time and production cost of a part compared to producing the same part using 3D printing alone.
