The Technical Services division of Keighley Laboratories achieved Nadcap accreditation for a Materials Testing Laboratory (MTL), a status recognized by the majority of global aerospace primes as a mark of quality-assurance excellence. The West Yorkshire Company also gained coveted Merit grade, which rewards superior performance in Nadcap audits and reduces subsequent audit frequency. Accreditation has also prompted affirmation and prolongation of its Airbus approval. As one of the few Nadcap-accredited MTL facilities in the U.K., Keighley Labs has been successfully assessed for the evaluation of aerospace welds; tensile, impact and bend testing; metallographic and micro-indentation hardness procedures; and specimen preparation and machining.
