ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. CAPS is well on its way to a successful implementation with the completion of a painstaking review of the entire 9001:2015 standard by a core group of CAPS employees. This first stage of implementation was capped off by an internal auditor training class that provided CAPS auditors the techniques and tools, along with the knowledge of the standard that is necessary to support a robust and effective internal auditing program. CAPS’ expectation is to achieve full implementation, and achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification for the CAPS organization by the end of the year, 2017.
CAPS Exhibit at OTC
CAPS, manufacturer of HVAC and pressurization systems, had the pleasure of attending the Offshore Technology Conference 2016
held in Houston. The exhibition floor was the third largest in history with more than 2,600 exhibitors from 47 different countries.
CAPS showcased many of their innovative products such as the 2 to 40 ton wall-mount air conditioners. If you missed the conference, be sure to contact us to learn more about our other products such as the 20 to 40 ton high static AC units and the 80 ton industrial high static AC unit. We would love to educate you more about our services.
A Heartfelt Thank You from CAPS CEO
I personally want to thank you for visiting our booth at Offshore Technology Conference 2016/Houston.
Statistics show that this year’s 2016 OTC attendance ranked in the top 15 of the 48 annual events which have been held to-date and attracted some 68,000 attendees from 120 countries.
It’s meeting people like you who make each day a rewarding experience!

Custom HVAC Design Process Streamlined with 3-D Printers
The custom HVAC design process continues to be streamlined at CAPS with the addition of two 3-D printers! The two MakerBot Replicator Z18s were obtained over the last two years in order to stay on the cutting edge of technology in manufacturing and fabrication. CAPS has been putting the two machines to work, experimenting with exactly what they can do, and CAPS has been pleased with the results. Some of the prototyped parts are used to prove fit and function before being fabricated and manufactured in the shop, while others can actually be utilized as manufactured components.
CAPS Manufactures and Fabricates Custom HVACs Efficiently!
David Potts, Senior Designer & Design Supervisor at CAPS, gave a short tour and demo on how the whole process works. In-house engineers first design and model the component required using field measurements or customer provided specifications. Then that draft is selected by David Potts and monitored as it prints out on one of the 3-D printers. Each 3-D printed part can take from minutes to days to print dependent upon the part size, complexity and resolution required.
During the printing process, the operation can be paused at any point and the mini-model can be removed from the printer and visually inspected. After inspection it can be placed back in position and the printing process can continue.
What is phenomenal about it, and extremely environmentally-friendly, is a 1.75 MM plastic filament called Polylactic Acid or PLA. PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources such as corn or sugarcane. In following with CAPS’ eye towards the future, they have also invested in equipment to take any failed prints, scraps and prototypes that are no longer needed and recycle them into new filament to be used on other prints. David Potts is especially pleased that there almost zero waste from the entire process! It’s an efficient process and truly encompasses what CAPS is all about.
