Techmetals Earns Boeing Approvals
The approvals include electroless nickel, cadmium, hard coating aluminum anodize, and sulfuric anodize.
Techmetals in Dayton, Ohio, has received approval for several Boeing specifications.
The approvals include electroless nickel plating for MIL-C-26074, AMS 2404, AMS-C-26074; cadmium plating Type I and II electrodeposited per QQ-P-416 and AMS-QQ-P-416; hard coating aluminum anodize per AMS 2469, MIL-A-8625 Type II; and sulfuric anodize Type II per MIL-A-8625.
Phillip Brockman, Techmetals president, says these approvals also support Boeing’s supply chain, such as UTAS, Collins Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Otis Technology, UTC Aerospace, Goodrich, Spirit AeroSystems, Triumph Group, PCC Aerostructures, General Dynamics, Raytheon, GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce, Ball Aerospace, Héroux-Devtek, Liebherr Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, Moog, Textron and others .
Techmetals is already certified and approved for Nadcap chemical processing and coatings, AS 9100 Rev D, and as a registered repair station with the Federal Aviation Administration. Techmetals was also named a Products Finishing Top Shop in 2019.
Brockman says the firm recently added capacity and automation to its systems as it grows its work in the aerospace, defense, nuclear, medical, oil and gas, and automotive sectors.
