Joining Technologies Pursuing ISO 13485 Certification
EAST GRANBY, Conn.--Precision welding services provider Joining Technologies, Inc., is on schedule to be certified this year to the ISO 13485 standard for the manufacture of medical devices, the company recently announced. Joining Technologies, already certified to quality management standards under NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) and AS9100, reports that it is one of very few welding service companies committed to meeting the ISO 13485 Medical Device Standard.
The company's decision to obtain the ISO 13485 certification sets it apart from other welding houses, and demonstrates its commitment to processing parts to the same rigorous standards as its major medical device customers. Achieving the new standard is expected to strengthen Joining Technologies' relationship with current customers, expand its growing medical customer base, and further enhance its capabilities with Tier 1 suppliers.
To guide the certification process, Joining Technologies has contracted with CONNSTEP, a non-profit business consulting organization that specializes in assisting manufacturing firms implementing ISO quality management systems. CONNSTEP will assist with the internal quality auditing, prepare Joining Technologies for the registration audit, and train internal quality auditors. The formal audit with the ISO registrar is expected to be finalized by late autumn 2012.
Joining Technologies (www.joiningtech.com), headquartered in East Granby, Conn., is an innovator in precision fusion processes, including laser and electron beam welding, laser additive manufacturing, and weld system design and integration. The company's engineering talent works to develop economical solutions for joining metal components, primarily in the medical device, sensors, aerospace, military, energy, and firearms industries.
