Quality- ISO 9001:2008

Northern prides itself on fabricating complex and challenging parts. Our investment in the latest sheet metal technology, and commitment to quality, allow us to consistently hold the tightest tolerances in our industry.

ISO 9001:2008 Certified

In addition to being independently audited and certified as ISO 9001:2008, Northern has a long history of quality awards and certifications. Some examples include Ford's Q1 certification and being named supplier of the year for one of our major customers..


Niton Alloy Analysis - Material Grade Identification

Many different grades of material appear the same, but our customers want to be 100% confident that their product has been made with the correct alloy. Northern has invested in handheld metal alloy analyzers by Niton. This technology can ensure your 316L stainless steel component wasn't made with 316. It can also check to make sure the correct welding filler material was used.


FARO Ion - measures 0.002 at 30'

Error Proof Design

A laser tracker is similar to a CMM, except you can bring the tracker to the part. It can measure anything inside a 360' diameter. Measurements can be done on the fly, or compared to a 3D model.
