Efficient, effective operation is the new frontier, and experience the essential foundation
DP Seals, a leading manufacturer with over 30 years' experience of precision custom rubber seals and mouldings, is uniquely placed to help leverage extra performance from your sub-sea communication, oil and gas exploration components.
Elegant solutions - materials, engineering, tooling, production and quality - working in perfect harmony reveal the beauty of a joined-up solution: from engineer’s desk to quality product, quickly, efficiently and accurately. Continuous investment in engineering and production processes underpins the understanding of the cost/performance benefits presented by new polymers - benefits that give clients an all-important unseen edge.
A direct, high-efficiency link from engineer's desktop to in-house tool room ensures prototype tooling in optimum time without compromising precision or quality and eliminating error.
The availability of rubber-like materials for 3D printing has allowed DP Seal to add this valiuable new process to its prototyping capabilities, helping clients to further shorten development times.
Whether for prototyping or mass production, tool production requires more than equipment; it requires knowing how to section a tool and how materials behave under pressure to ensure a highly reliable end product.
The busy in-house tool room benefits from the latest technology: state-of-the-art vertical machining centres (VMC) and advanced CNC lathes augment existing all-CNC VMCs, lathes and mills and advanced spark erosion and wire cutting capabilities.
Tool and material meet on the shop floor. Characterised by low set-up times with high accuracy and repeatability, DP Seals' transfer moulding capabilities are ideal for short prototype runs and for volume production across a wide range of polymers.
The two biggest presses take significantly larger tooling, allowing manufacture of larger, more complex mouldings as well as increased batch sizes for high volume components.This flexibility allows integration with customer's Kanban and JIT-enabled processes.
DP Seals pioneered cryogenic de-flashing and now has two of the most advanced of their kind in the world. Cryogenic de-flashing has made the essential cleaning process faster, more efficient and more effective than ever. This is one of several product-specific cleaning systems installed at DP Seals to ensure all output is free from flashing and defects.
We regard our TQM approach to quality control as second to none and DP Seals was one of the first custom rubber moulding companies in the UK to achieve ISO 9001 accreditation. This was soon followed by ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. In 2009 we added top aerospace manufacturing accreditation AS 9100, and in 2010 BAE Systems approval to the list.
These standards are strictly enforced and monitored by our dedicated quality team.
Every customer receives the same high level of service from DP Seals: uncompromising quality control.
