Along with business partner Lubawa, TenCate was exhibiting at the MSPO in Kielce, Poland, 1-4 September.
TenCate displayed our full spectrum of survivability systems for all platforms and solutions for personal protection to a distinguished audience from Eastern and Central Europe as well as global OEM customers focussing on the highly dynamic Polish market for military and law enforcement.
The MSPO is the most important exhibition of the defense industry in Europe and the third largest trade show in Europe; ranked after Paris and London. This year, for the first time in the expo history, the exhibition area exceeded 25,000 sqm. The expo was the showcase for over 500 exhibitors from 27 countries of the world.
TenCate Advanced Armour and TenCate Protective Fabrics will be present at Milipol in Paris to show our systems approach to personal protection, where TenCate can offer flame retardent fabrics for uniforms from TenCate Protective Fabrics, as well as soft ballistic and stab-resistant fabrics, hard armour inserts, prepregs for helmets, and ballistic shields from TenCate Advanced Armour.
In protecting aircraft, every kilogram of weight matters, due to the potential degradation to performance and reduction in payload. Aircraft armour from TenCate is therefore designed to provide maximum protection with only a minimum of weight added.
TenCate has a broad experience in aerospace composite solutions. These protection solutions have been designed for OEM and retrofit applications and have been approved according to civilian and military aerospace regulations regarding environmental properties, stress, reliability and safety requirements. TenCate designs ballistic protection panels ‘built to print’ and ‘built to spec’ with high dimensional accuracy and quick-fix interfaces to ensure easy and fast installation and de-installation with low maintenance which offers a reduced whole life cost solution.
The ballistic protection will be designed and produced in a dedicated aerospace EN9100 certified and NATO security cleared production site. TenCate Advanced Armour provides whole life support for the ballistic protection solutions using a professional Integrated Logistic Support organization worldwide.
TenCate Advanced Armour have acquired a wide experience in retro-fit solutions for aircraft stretching over fixed-wing heavy transport aircraft to rotary-wing reconnaissance aircraft. Retro-fit solutions can be used to modernize whole fleets or specialize individual aircraft to mission-specific operations. TenCate Advanced Armour can offer cost-efficient solutions to solve both problems.
EN 9100 is the internationally recognized quality system standard specific to the aerospace industry.
TenCate Advanced Armour in France is certified to fulfil EN9100 to ensure high and consistent performance in demanding OEM aerospace programs.
Known as AS 9100 in North America, EN 9100 in Europe and JISQ 9100 in Japan, the standard is strongly supported and adhered to by major aeronautics manufacturers including Airbus, Boeing, GEAE and Rolls-Royce.
Indeed, AS 9100 certification has already become the basic requirement demanded by all these companies to their suppliers.
Based on ISO 9000 requirements, AS 9100 puts a particular focus on quality, safety and technology in all disciplines throughout the aerospace industry, and along the entire supply chain. It applies to every domain whether civil or military.
ISO 14001:2004 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.
All the requirements in ISO 14001:2004 are intended to be incorporated into any environmental management system. The extent of the application will depend on factors such as the environmental policy of the organization, the nature of its activities, products and services and the location where and the conditions in which it functions.
TenCate Advanced Armour Danmark is certified to ISO 14001.
ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to.
The TenCate Advanced Armour quality management system is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008
TenCate Advanced Armour operates three manufacturing facilities – in Primarette, France, in Swindon in the UK, and in Vissenbjerg, Denmark – each with its own quality certificate and quality manager. In order to ensure the best possible quality – and the most consistent – the different plants merge their quality management systems whenever appropriate.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.
ISO/TS 16949:2009, in conjunction with ISO 9001:2008, defines the quality management system requirements for the design and development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products.
TenCate is compliant to the specification to satisfy strict requirements from customers from the automotive industry.
Several of our customers are certified according to TS16949, and we are fully fulfilling their requirements, but also other substantial elements from the standard (FMEA, PPAP, AQAP).
We are capable to deliver any required VDA, PPAP or FAI documentation package.
ISO/TS 16949:2009 is applicable to sites of the organization where customer-specified parts, for production and/or service, are manufactured, which is the case for TenCate.
ISO/TS 16949:2009 can be applied throughout the automotive supply chain.
AQAP 2110 contains the NATO requirements for Quality. A system needs to be established, documented, applied, maintained, assessed and improved, and/or evaluated, in accordance with specific requirements.
The aim of the AQAP agreement is to define standards for Quality Assurance of defence products. These standards are an integral part of contracts awarded in the military field involving NATO member countries. AQAP documents are therefore important to contractors and companies wanting to bid for such contracts.
TenCate Advanced Armour is certified to AQAP 2110.
