Facilities & Processes

NADCAP & Approved Processes

 We are NADCAP certified for Fluorescent  Penetrant Inspection (FPI), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Conventional  EDM,  fusion welding and chemcial processing.

Birken Manufacturing became ISO 9000 certified in 1998.  This was a major  milestone marking our strong commitment to continuous improvement in our  quality control processes.  Our ISO:9000  registration includes sheet-metal fabrication, precision assembly, precision  machining, hot and cold metal forming, fusion welding, resistance welding and  pneumatic and hydraulic testing.

Birken subsequently became AS 9100 certified,  providing more stringent quality and training requirements.

Birken’s quality policy stresses continuous  improvement.  By tracking quality issues  and determining the cause of any quality problems, we seek to institute  corrective action to assure that the issue never reoccurs.  Our employees are encouraged to assist  manufacturing and engineering by determining corrective action that will improve  manufacturing precision, efficiency and provide value and quality for our  customers.  Our quality system conforms  to existing MIL-STD specifications.
