Features of the materials, used in aviation engines, are required to be known at high accuracy and reliability so that they are used in design analyses. Accordingly, it is a must for the laboratories, where materials data are obtained, run in compliance with the international standards and be accredited. Therefore, TEI installed TEI Material Testing and Research Laboratory within the organization of Design Engineering Directorate in 2014.
TEI Material Testing and Research Laboratory was entitled to obtain Nadcap accreditation, which is recognized by global aviation authorities and managed by PRI (Performance Review Institute), for 18 months to start as of May 2016. Included in top-10 companies among Nadcap-accredited 3672 companies with its 8 different special process groups previously, TEI is now among top-5 companies with its 9 different special process group accreditations upon grant of this accreditation.
