AS9100 Certification for Hot Isostatic Pressing

Wallwork adds hot isostatic pressing to AS9100 certification

at Wallwork HIP Centre

The Wallwork HIP Centre has passed EN/AS9100 certification for their new hot isostatic pressing process. Installed and commissioned by Quintus Technologies in the last quarter of 2023, the HIP is now entering its fourth month of operation.  For customers from a range of industries, the Aerospace Quality Management System AS9100 certification provides the highest assurance about the systems in place to ensure Wallwork HIP Centre will meet their requirements.

“Preparing for the audit has been a massive effort by all the team. I extend a personal thank you to all those involved in the process of adding hot isostatic pressing to the extensive scope of Wallwork Bury’s AS9100 approvals. I know they will continue to ensure that the highest quality standards are adhered to on a daily basis,” said David Loughlin, Wallwork HIP Centre, Business Manager.

“With additive manufactured components playing an increasingly vital role in aerospace, demand for hot isostatic pressing is rising rapidly. Adding the second HIP, recently announced, means we will be in front of the curve and ready to provide the high service standards expected by aerospace and all other manufacturers,” David added.

The Wallwork HIP Centre is wholly integrated with Wallwork Group’s dedicated national transport systems for speedy pick-up and delivery. Again assuring aerospace component manufacturers of total end-to-end responsibility for their components.

As an entirely UK based, ITAR compliant business, Wallwork are ideal partners for defence as well as civil aerospace projects.
