Based in Derbyshire, HPC Services was established in 1999 as an offshoot company of Hemlock Engineering Ltd. Hemlock needed a solution for making high precision shafts for the printer/date coding industry, so, with a single Citizen sliding head machine, we started up HPC Services Ltd.
At the time, sliding head technology was very new and fairly unknown in the UK. Because of the advantages of the slidinghead technology, we were able to grow rapidly and begin supplying a whole host of other industries. Now, our experience in slidinghead methods and techniques, and the operation of Citizen M32 and A32 lathes, is second to none in the industry.
We have also had to install 6 fixed head lathes due to demand for larger components. This enables us to offer a whole turning solution to our customers. As part of the Hemlock group, we can also offer the capacity 25 CNC milling machines, with services including 5 axis CNC milling and CAD CAM.
