The UK's largest independent laser welding specialists, Carrs' Welding Technologies, has long been renowned for its cutting edge work in laser welding development. Encouraged by more and more customers to extend into actual production work, Carrs set up a separate production company in May last year. The new operation welds assemblies, carries out testing operations and has facilities for laser marking of components. It welds a diverse range of products, from closing electronic assemblies for space programmes to precision industrial plumbing fittings, and from lithium-ion battery modules for performance cars to high speed rotors.
Now, barely one year from incorporation, Carrs' Welding Products has achieved certification to AS/EN9100 Aerospace Quality Management through the United Kingdom Accreditation Service, the sole national body recognised by government to assess organisations providing certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
As Carrs' Welding Products operates only to this one exacting standard, all of its customers will benefit from the precise attention to detail required by the demanding aerospace industry.
Once the higher quality standard is bedded in at the company, the medium term goal is to achieve NADCAP accredited status. The sky is the limit when it comes to quality and risk assessment at Carrs'.
