DPC has an enviable reputation for quality in the precision machining market. The business is quality -driven in all aspects of its work. First-class quality is ensured with a robust ISO quality system. DPC has held the ISO certification since 1996 and has transferred over to the new 2015 standard in December 2017. All parts go through a first-off, batch stage and final inspection. All inspection equipment is fully calibrated and traceable back to national standards.
DPC has been a member of the British Turned Parts Manufacturers Association (BTMA) since 2013. This is an association of industry-leading business owners and managers who attend several meetings a year. Topics discussed include changes in legislation, new and emerging technologies and ‘state-of-the-trade’ presentations from members. These presentations provide details of how engineering is performing in the UK, including staff levels, apprentices and business levels.
DPC offers the best of both worlds when it comes to engineering excellence – an expert workforce and excellent facilities. Our low staff turnover means we have many years of engineering experience and knowledge which benefits our clients. Coupled with huge investment in the latest machines and ancillary equipment, we have become one of the best-performing sub-contractors in the UK today. This wealth of engineering talent and equipment enables us to react very quickly to your particular requirements including help with design, cost reduction and special finishes.
Utilising the latest machines drives the need to compliment this with some of the best metrology equipment available. Our inspection department has three full time inspectors who perform first-off, batch stage and final inspection of all parts. Equipment available includes a manual CMM, a full CNC CMM, and optical projectors with Quadra Check technology, digital height gauges and OGP Smart Scope vision inspection system. We also have a dot etch marking system and a laser etch system to provide further services such as part marking or serialisation.
