AS9145 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval

2020-05-05
Production and continual improvement of safe and reliable products is key in the aviation, space and defense industries. Customer and regulatory requirements must not only be met, but they are typically expected to exceeded requirements. Due to globalization, the supply chain of this industry has been expanded to countries which were not part of it in the past and has complicated the achievement of requirements compliance and customer satisfaction. The IAQG has established and deployed the AS9145 Standard, as a step to help achieve these objectives.

Adhesives Bundle

Anytime
Manufacturers increasingly rely on adhesives to assemble a variety of products, such as cars, computers, furniture, and toys. An adhesive is a substance used to join two or more materials. Adhesive bonding is the process of placing an adhesive between two surfaces, or substrates, and allowing it to harden, or cure. Structural adhesives are most commonly used in adhesive bonding, since they can easily withstand heavy loads. Epoxies, anaerobics, acrylics, silicones, urethanes, and cyanoacrylates are commonly used structural adhesives. These courses explain the fundamental concepts of adhesive bonding as they apply to product assembly.

Automated Systems for Aerospace and Space Applications

The rapidly evolving demand for cost reductions and shrinking budgets makes the application and use of automated processes within the aerospace and space industries a necessity. While some view aerospace automation as the solution to reducing costs, others view automation technologies and processes as something that should be avoided when possible. Misunderstandings and assumptions about these complex systems can result in the improper selection and application of these systems, often leading to undesirable interactions with other elements of the assembly process and potentially, project failure.
