The fabrication of advance composite parts for aerospace vehicle requires a high-level of quality management. Shortly after Firefly’s inspections and testing of Composite Builders and its carbon fiber parts, Firefly gave Composite Builders the green light as an approved advanced composites manufacturer; The company is a supplier of carbon fiber components used on Firefly’s space vehicles. One of Firefly’s requirements is a high standard of quality control. Composite Builders is registered under ISO 9001;2015 and uses AS 9100 documentation in our processes. Every component Composite Builders makes has a thorough set of work instructions and quality documentations. Documents are recorded electronically and secured long term in their private database.
Composite Builder’s knowledge of risk management for advance composites fabrication reassures their customers. Although Firefly’s composite engineers provided the laminate schedule for their parts, Composite Builders understand every decision made for the lamination process and how carbon fiber will perform per skin. The external factors that can affect pre-impregnated carbon fiber are also controlled, such as material processing, exposure, contaminates, and temperature. There are several additional risk management processes which they implement in their composite fabrication to ensure quality and reliability to their customers.
