Welcome to HPC Precision Engineering
Performance, Precision, Partnership. Three words that give you, the customer, total confidence that your production is being handled by one of the UK’s premier machining facilities in the most competent manner.
HPC supply a total project managed production solution from purchased items through to final assembly.
The tighter the tolerance, the more capable the process realised. Using only the most highly specified machining centers from Makino, Mori Seiki and Hitachi Seiki, HPC repeatedly achieve sub 10-micron tolerance features across a wide range of materials and complexity of component.
Makino A77 horizontal machining centers are housed in air-conditioned, temperature-controlled areas to ensure machining accuracy for specific products. Components are measured on Zeiss CMM’s replicating the temperature and humidity of the machining area. With full scanning capabilities, a full dimensional report accompanies each part to the customer for verification under the same conditions.
High Speed Machining
Fast machines with unbelievable accuracy. HPC’s machining centers, with twin ball screw technology and amongst the fastest spindle speeds available, enable superior surface contouring and the added benefit of extremely quick acceleration and deceleration times. Using the latest technology Mori Seiki NH4000 DCG and Makino horizontal machining centers, HPC are at the forefront of Hi Speed machining aimed at medium volume production.
The mainstay of HPC's high speed machining is in the area of high visual appearance automotive components, where aesthetically important components are machined from extruded aluminium billets. HPC initially pioneered the use of break-out technology for the communications industry; then, through continuous improvement, developed it further to enable extremely complex shapes to be machined using the most flexible holding techniques.
Automation, designed with the customer, and dedication to solving the customer’s long-term production needs is paramount to HPC’s success. This can be seen in the commitment given to customer specific manufacturing areas within HPC's factories. An eight station ‘IMAS’ rotary transfer machine has now been producing one part every minute for 6 years. A ten-machine vertical multi axis lathe cell, produces up to 2200 components per day with zero PPM failure rate, again dedicated to one product.
HPC is unique in its ability to tailor long-term production around customer’s demands. The latest example of this is with new Makino A100 horizontal machining centers combined with a 48 bay ‘Fastems’ factory management cell, producing large automotive and medical components, delivered straight from the cell to the customer’s assembly lines.
Dedicated assembly lines including wash areas, pressure test facilities and flow test apparatus completes HPC's objective to provide customers with a total solutions package. HPC is proud of its reputation to deliver fully tested assemblies direct to production lines across the world, whether it be low or high volume, together with zero PPM reject rates. Assembly lines can be tailored with equipment specific to customers requirements whilst quality, cleanliness and supply is guaranteed through strict controls and measures.
HPC offer a unique, proven ability to design an entire production facility around the customer’s requirements. This includes HPC Engineers working closely with customers and contributing key elements to the initial component design, assisting to ensure that cost effective, accurate manufacturing techniques are designed into an item. HPC Production Engineers possess the skills, expertise and experience to assist with the selection of suitable machine tools, to design specific tooling and fixtures and, where required, design an assembly line dedicated to an individual product.
As testament to HPC’s willingness to invest in long-term partnership and development projects, many customers have worked with HPC for over 20 years. This customer confidence is a direct result of HPC managing a project from its initial conception to a delivered product whilst continually investigating and considering opportunities for improvement through new technology and investment.
The key to HPC’s successful long-term partnerships comes from the total confidence and peace of mind that when HPC deliver a product, it far exceeds the expectations of the customer.
