What is the Difference Between ISO 9001 and AS 9100?

What is the Difference Between ISO 9001 and AS 9100?

As a machine shop that is AS 9100D and ISO 9001 certified, we are sometimes asked about each.  Precision CNC machining services such as close tolerance machining, small part machining, laser engraving, laser etching, laser cutting and milling turning requires knowledge, skill and experience.  First, when it comes to contract manufacturing and prototypes to production manufacturing, it is important to check the credentials of any machine shop you are considering. Let’s take a closer look at AS 9100 and ISO 9001.

AS 9100

AS 9100 is maintained by the aerospace division of SAE International and the International Aerospace Quality Group (IACG). AS 9100 is a quality standard set exclusively for the aerospace industry, which includes defense, space and aviation.  JW Machine is an AS 9100 certified machine shop.

ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It is the international standard for quality assurance and implementing a quality management system.  Unlike AS 9100 which is reserved specifically for the aerospace industry, a company in any sector that meets the requirements for ISO 9001 is eligible to earn the certification. JW Machine is ISO 9001:2015 certified.

JW Machine is an award-winning machine shop in Orlando, Florida.  In addition to ISO 9100:2015 and AS 9100 D, we are also JCP certified, SAM (CCR) registered, ITAR registered/compliant, MBE certified and MIL-SPEC Quality Compliance certified.  Industries including aerospace, defense and OEM parts manufacturing count on us to deliver high quality contract manufacturing and prototypes to production manufacturing services.  When it comes to precision CNC machining, you cannot compromise on quality.  JW Machine delivers the most trusted and reliable machine shop services, period.  If you are in need of milling turning, laser cutting, laser engraving, laser etching, small part machining, close tolerance machining or any other precision CNC machining services, we can help.
