DPM can meet all of your engineering needs, from inspections, removals and servicing to repairs, cleaning and reconditioning. Our engineers have years of experience and in-depth knowledge of every type of press on the market. Before we even consider purchasing a machine, whether for stock or clients, our engineers inspect an print test it thoroughly. Our qualified engineers can carry out an array of services, from simple maintenance through to repairs, removals valuations and inspections. In addition to these services our engineers are on hand whenever you buy a press from or through DPM, in order to insure that your equipment will arrive in the best possible condition.
The ability to provide a comprehensive engineering service has never been more important than now. Increased demands placed on machinery, longer working hours, higher impressions and advances in automation and electronics require an engineering service capable of handling both new and old technology. At DPM we have invested heavily in ensuring the quality of our engineering resources is second to none. Therefore, we are able to provide a range of services to suit our client base both in the UK and overseas.

A reconditioned machine goes through an extensive overhaul procedure that guarantees its quality. Before being removed from its initial location the press will be comprehensively inspected and print-tested. The press will be thoroughly cleaned and resprayed in the original livery and all rubber rollers will be recovered. After cleaning, the engineers will utilise the site inspection, print test and an overhaul programme designed from years of experience to ensure the machine leaves the factory in optimum condition. Only our engineers undertake delivery and installation with commissioning taking place with an experienced demonstrator. The press is print tested and all functions deemed operational prior to hand over to the clients operatives thus ensuring a quick and efficient move to full production. All reconditioned machines are given a comprehensive parts and labour guarantee.
Cleaned and Checked
When DPM supply a cleaned & checked machine we mean cleaned AND checked, not just “glanced at the innards and given a quick wipe down.” Our presses are both hand-cleaned and mechanically cleaned- thus ensuring all components are free of the grime that can increase component wear and tear and decrease print quality. Our experience has shown that hand cleaning is best suited to the complex automated printing presses, applying less pressure to components and introducing fewer foreign substances whilst the Cryogenesis cleaning method is better suited to older presses ( or newer presses under strict supervision from our engineers ) . The checking procedure ensures that any broken, missing or excessively worn parts are repaired or replaced prior to the machine being commissioned. The press will also be supplied with a parts and labour guarantee.
When DPM provide a site-to-site press far more consideration of your needs will have been taken than most ordinary site-to-sites. Instead of simply buying a machine that suits your requirements without having checked its condition, DPM run a comprehensive mechanical and electrical and print test to ensure that the machine is in good working order and will remain so for the foreseeable future. The press is then delivered and installed by our own engineers, commissioned and given a guarantee.
We can locate equipment for you to buy and remove from site on an “as is - ex site ” basis allowing you to choose your own engineering company to undertake the work.
We are able to provide additional services including cleaning, painting and refurbishment for overseas clients. We would be pleased to discuss them with you. After you purchase a press from us our engineers will dismantle, prepare for transportation and securely load onto your prefered mode of transport. We utilize our experience to assure machines are packed, loaded safely and securely and in a professional way to ensure that when the equipment reaches its destination there will be no problems.
