CLIFTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Joseph Federico, Vice President of NJ MET, Inc. announced the renewal of his membership with SAE International for a seventh year. SAE International is a U.S.-based, globally active, professional association and standards organization for engineering professionals in various industries. Principal emphasis is placed on transport industries such as automotive, aerospace, and commercial vehicles.
Founded by automotive, automobile and aerospace giants such as Andrew L. Ricker, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Glenn Martin, Orville Wright and Charles Kettering, the society coordinates the development of technical standards based on best practices identified and described by SAE committees and task forces. Task forces are composed of engineering professionals from relevant fields. SAE International has over 120,000 members globally. Membership is granted to individuals, not through companies. Aside from its standardization efforts, SAE International continues to devote resources to projects and programs in STEM education, professional certification, and collegiate design competitions.
“I am happy to continue my participation for a seventh year in SAE’s testing, validation and certification management category, particularly with NJ MET’s interests in aerospace testing and counterfeit parts mitigation,” said NJ MET Vice President Joseph Federico from the company’s laboratory headquarters in NJ. He added, “We practice SAE’s AS5553 and AS6081 Counterfeit Risk Mitigation Testing Processes. We also share SAE International’s interest in furthering STEM education, including sponsoring our own STEM scholarship.”
SAE publishes over 6,400 technical documents for the aerospace industry. These include Aerospace Standards (AS), Aerospace Recommended Practices (ARP), and Aerospace Information Reports (AIR). Aerospace Standards apply to missile, airframe, ground-support equipment, propulsion, propeller, and accessory equipment. Aerospace Material Standards are a subset of Aerospace Standards governing materials science and engineering for aerospace applications. Aerospace Recommended Practices are recommendations for engineering practice. Aerospace Information Reports contain general accepted engineering data and information.
NJ MET has been a pioneer in the Commercial, Military, Aerospace, Industrial, Automotive and Medical fields providing worldwide quality electronic component procurement, screening and qualification testing of electronic component products for 38 years. An AS9100 Rev. C / ISO9001:2008 certified laboratory, NJ MET is also Defense Logistic Agency’s (DLA) laboratory suitable to test federal stock classes (FSC) 5961 (Semiconductor Devices) and FSC 5962 (Microcircuits) to DLA’s QTSL test requirements. NJ MET is also registered with GIDEP, SAE International, ERAI, ASTM, ITAR, IEEE, and ANSI/ESD20.20. Their employees have hands on training in the Counterfeit Components Avoidance Workshop by The Components Technology Institute. NJ MET has an outstanding A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
