Attendance at the October 2013 Nadcap meeting was better than most years, but it still yielded fewer heat treaters than there ought to have been. That said, in this article we’ll take a look at the arrival of new specification AMS 2750 Rev. E and some of the changes.
One of the most interesting sessions at Nadcap this year focused on the top-10 nonconformances. Unsurprisingly, eight out of the 10 were regarding pyrometry. Much to the annoyance of quality managers, the devious specification behind countless occurrences of heartburn is still AMS 2750. It seems the industry’s attempt at clarifying the requirements for aerospace primes has, as a side effect, created new fodder for the auditors to reflect on.
