Solar Atmospheres of Michigan Achieves Nadcap Accreditation for Laboratory

Solar Atmospheres of Michigan Nadcap Laboratory

Chesterfield, MI, March 4, 2024 – Solar Atmospheres of Michigan successfully achieves Nadcap AC7101/4 accreditation for their captive metallography laboratory. The accreditation will allow the Chesterfield plant to continue testing for microhardness, surface contamination, intergranular oxidation and grain size which were all previously completed at the Warren facility. In addition to continued testing capabilities, the addition of new metallographic preparation equipment and metallography software will expand Chesterfield’s R&D capabilities and assist in new product development.

Plant Metallurgist Greg Scheuring states, “This was the next step in moving operations from Warren to Chesterfield. To limit downtime and maintain on-time delivery, we gave ourselves a week to make the move and conduct the audit. It was an extremely abbreviated period time for such a task but personnel at both facilities pulled together to make it happen. Now the audit is complete with no findings, and we are back up and running. Stellar teamwork all around!”
