TxV Aero Composites complies with AS9100: the highest quality standards in the aerospace industry

TxV Aero Composites has received AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certification for its highly automated thermoplastic composite part manufacturing facility. Meeting the requirements of these globally adopted benchmarks demonstrates a commitment to producing composite parts of the highest-quality for the commercial aerospace industry.

The widely adopted, standardised quality management system for Aerospace, AS9100, is of crucial significance for suppliers to do business with aerospace manufacturers. To achieve the certification, TxV defined all process interactions and developed QMS documentation including a quality manual, work instructions and process for maintaining records to achieve full compliance with the standard. Gaining certification means that the TxV management system complies with the highest quality standards in the aerospace industry today and demonstrates the company's commitment to providing quality products and continuous improvement.

"Achieving operational readiness and compliance with AS9100 and ISO standards are key milestones for our growing business," said Jonathan Sourkes, Senior Account Manager at TxV. "We have a state-of-the-art facility and an innovative process to produce hybrid overmoulded parts for commercial aerospace. The team at TxV continues to achieve operational and commercial successes for themselves and their customers."

TxV Aero's manufacturing processes are based on VICTREX PAEK polymer*, in particular VICTREX AE 250 thermoplastic composites. These lightweight high-performance polymer solutions in combination with TxV's capability to design and manufacture functional parts are expected to contribute to the aerospace industry achieving commercial build rates. Sourkes continues, "We can best serve our customers by deepening our expertise, rather than broadening it. Our dedicated focus on materials and applications will result in faster certification of parts."

TxV's highly-automated manufacturing facility was designed and built for the sole purpose of manufacturing polyketone composite parts for commercial aerospace. The company's manufacturing capabilities include automated tape laying, consolidation, forming and injection moulding under one roof. In addition, TxV also has a quality lab on site to ensure compliance to the strict quality requirements of the aerospace industry.
