Conflux Technology, an Australian metal additive manufacturing heat exchanger innovator led by Michael Fuller, has announced their progress toward the Aerospace certification AS9100D with design. This certification will include Design, which is unusual in this industry, as part of their commitment to being laser focused specialists.
“This marks a considerable step up in our Quality Assurance strategy, and will demonstrate the organisation’s commitment to providing the highest standards of quality and technical excellence to our customers.”– Andrew Milner, Business Analyst and Quality Assurance Expert, Conflux Technology
Aerospace Certification AS9100D with Design
AS9100D is a quality management system standard for the aerospace, space, and defence industries. It has numerous additional requirements in addition to ISO9001:2015, and the certification process is overseen by the IAQG (International Aerospace Quality Group), an industry-owned and operated certification scheme led by several major Aerospace primes.
Conflux has already completed the first stage of a six-month process to secure the aerospace certification AS9100D with design and is well positioned to complete the next stage, which is currently scheduled for completion at the beginning of 2023.
Conflux’s unique expertise in both heat transfer and additive manufacturing, combined with years of experience working with aerospace primes, allows them to offer their customers accelerated development programmes.
