NADCAP Heat Treating Services
When it comes to post processing investment castings, heat treatment plays a major role. Heat treatment is performed to enhance hardness, strength, durability and ensure consistent mechanical properties are achieved. The application of controlled heating and cooling procedures is mandatory for a properly controlled process. NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of ‘special processes’ and helps ensure a standardized and consistent process. American Casting Company understands the crucial role of this special process which is why we utilize the best-in-class suppliers who are NADCAP certified.
