A first class approach to rubber quality control
Our TQM approach to quality control is second to none. 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 ISO 45001. 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 and regularly audited by URS – ensuring every stage from initial design through manufacture to final despatch is carefully monitored.
Full SPC analysis
The installation of the latest in non-contact video measuring equipment means we can provide customers with full SPC, Cp/Cpk and other KPI for written verification of component specification.
Cryogenic cleaning services
Our fully-automated CNC-controlled cryogenic de-flashing machines are some of the most advanced of their kind in the world. They make the essential cleaning process faster, more efficient and effective by freezing components to their ‘glass temperature’. Then by ‘shot blasting’ them with polycarbonate beads they remove any brittle flash.
Our new, state-of-the-art, AWS20 machine can operate at temperatures down to -150°C and has customised programmes automatically activated by scanning individual job dockets. This ensures consistent quality control and traceability throughout the process.
Environmental and OHS accreditations
We also have ISO 14001 Environmental Management and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety accreditations.

We’ve installed the latest cryogenic cleaning equipment, linked to our quality control system that keeps the program data for each individual component we manufacture, simply scan the barcode and the machine is automatically programmed with the correct settings.
